Valdez STOL Invitational Returns to Oshkosh in 2016
April 7, 2016 - The Valdez STOL Invitational at Oshkosh will be returning to AirVenture in 2016 with a new location at the Ultralight strip for attendees to view the flights up close.
Flying Schedule: July 26 7:45 PM - 8:30 PM, July 28 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM, July 29 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM, July 30 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM - at Ultralight Runway
Seventeen STOL aircraft, which include homebuilts and other airplanes specially modified to take off and land on runways that may be less than 500 feet long, participated in the invitational last year, and EAA is looking forward to another great turnout.
Demonstration competitions will be held reflecting the Valdez competition held in Alaska every May. A display area will also be set aside in the Ultralight area for all aircraft participating in the invitational.
A schedule of events, to be determined, will include times for competitions and for some fun flying.
