Affordable Vintage Airplanes to be Featured at AirVenture
June 6, 2018 - The Vintage Aircraft Association will be featuring affordable, fun vintage airplanes in the Vintage Village, just east of the VAA Red Barn and south of the DC-3 area, during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018.
The affordable airplanes typically cost within the $15,000 to $40,000 range — less than a new car and far less than a new production aircraft. Makes include Aeronca, Cessna, Ercoupe, Piper, Taylorcraft, Interstate, Luscombe, Culver, Porterfield, and Stinson.
Rows of these airplanes will be in the Vintage Village all week, along with information such as the average cost of ownership, to show the accessibility of vintage flying. Owners and pilots will be around to talk to as well.
Bill Pancake, EAA 118244, will present two Vintage forums, sponsored by B&C Specialty Products, on fun and affordable airplanes, on Monday, July 23, at 10 a.m. and Friday, July 27, at 11 a.m. in the Vintage Hangar. Pancake is also being presented with the General Aviation 2018 Aviation Maintenance Tech of the Year award during AirVenture.
More information on fun and affordable Vintage aircraft can be found at the VAA website.
