Schedule Announced for Ultralights at Oshkosh 40th Anniversary
June 9, 2016 - Ultralight and lightplane owners, bring your aircraft to AirVenture and share the air with John Moody to celebrate the 40th anniversary of ultralights at Oshkosh. Moody first flew his Easy Riser ultralight design at the 1976 convention, and this year he will be back, flying his Easy Riser and weight-shift Eagle. With your help, we can make Oshkosh 2016 one for the books!
