South 40 Area at AirVenture to be Expanded, Improved
March 21, 2019 - The South 40 area of the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh grounds will be expanded and its facilities improved for the 2019 convention this July.
With an additional seven acres to work with in 2019, there will be expanded aircraft parking and camping, as well as facility upgrades in the area to improve the experience for attendees. Shower facilities, bathrooms, a convenience store, water and power hook-ups, charging stations, Wi-Fi hot spots, and additional lighting will all be in place this summer. The tram routes will also be extended to the south to transport attendees from the area to other parts of the grounds.
In 2020, an additional 22 acres of aircraft camping and an entrance facility on County Hwy N are expected to be added as well.
With this expansion of the South 40, EAA has additional volunteer opportunities especially in aircraft parking and marshalling roles.
"For anyone thinking about volunteering in the South 40, it’s a great opportunity to come and be a part of something new," said Dennis Dunbar, EAA director of AirVenture air show operations. "As volunteers continue to contribute to our success, our numbers continue to grow and as we expand, we need even more volunteers. This is an opportunity for volunteers to come together and be a part of something new to accommodate this great growth."
