Calling All Innovators to Aviation Gateway Park

April 21, 2016—Things are shaping up for this year’s Aviation Gateway Park at EAA AirVenture, with many activities and innovative idea-sharing projects underway. Though we’re near capacity, we’d like your help to take this area to even greater heights! Do you know of a company with breakthrough concepts in aviation, aerospace, or unmanned flight/UAV technology? We’d love to hear from you!

New innovative organizations will be welcomed by both industry heavyweights and unique start-ups already on board, such as DJI, xCraft, WingBoard, NASA, and many others. All are excited to share the future of aviation with our AirVenture attendees through exhibits, education, and hands-on demonstrations.

Sponsored by Piper Aircraft, Aviation Gateway Park features an Innovation Center, Drone Center/Drone Cage, and Career Center all designed to highlight the entrepreneurial spirit of AirVenture. “AirVenture has always been the premier event to discover what’s new and innovative in the world of aviation,” said Dave Chaimson, EAA’s vice president of marketing and business development. "At EAA, we love to keep an eye to the future while honoring our past, and we know people are excited to see some of the newest technologies in the aviation arena, including concepts featured in our Founder’s Innovation Prize contest."

Be sure to send your recommendations on organizations directly to EAA’s business development office. We are excited to hear all about it!
