Fun and Affordable Flying Returning to AirVenture

May 9, 2019 - For the second year in a row, the Vintage Aircraft Association will be showcasing Fun and Affordable aircraft at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019. Pegged as everyday flyers in the $15,000 to $40,000 price range, the fun and affordable subset of airplanes are perfect machines to fly to local pancake breakfasts, or even to take cross-country to your favorite fly-in.

Most 65- to 90-hp vintage airplanes fit the bill, along with some other vintage staples like the Cessna 170, Piper Pacer, and Stinson 108 — all of which also double as great family airplanes. The relatively low purchase price and operational costs make the group a favorite among their owners.

Aircraft types that will be featured in the Fun and Affordable Corral include:

Aeronca Champ
Aeronca Chief
Cessna 120 and 140
Cessna 150
Cessna 170
Cessna 172
Commonwealth Skyranger
Culver Cadet
Interstate Cadet
Luscombe 8
Piper Cherokee 140
Piper Clipper
Piper Colt
Piper J-3/J-4/J-5 Cubs
Piper Pacer and Tri-Pacer
Piper Vagabond
Stinson 108

The Fun and Affordable aircraft display area will be located just east of the VAA Red Barn with all makes and models represented. If you are interested in parking your plane in the showcase, please submit this form.
