Variety of Burt Rutan Designs Flying at AirVenture 2019

June 27, 2019 - Various Burt Rutan designs will be in attendance at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019, and they are expected to all fly together in a diverse gathering of Rutan designs never seen before in Oshkosh.

At least one flying Long-EZ, VariEze, Quickie, Defiant, VariViggen, Solitaire, Boomerang, and Catbird are all expected to attend AirVenture 2019, to coincide with Burt Rutan's own attendance at aviation's family reunion. In addition, Burt is flying into Oshkosh in a Beechcraft Starship, the canard-equipped twin-turboprop aircraft that he and his team at Scaled Composites designed in the 1980s.

Burt was a near-continuous AirVenture visitor from 1971 to 2015, where he initially displayed many of the aircraft that will be assembled in his honor. The iconic aircraft pioneer will be celebrated at Oshkosh through presentations in addition to the aircraft themselves, including Theater in the Woods evening programming on Thursday, July 25, as well as daytime forums and a Homebuilts in Review session.
