EAA Four Corners Will Cater to AirVenture 2018 Crowds
June 28, 2018 - EAA’s mission of growing participation in aviation is carried out throughout all of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, and the EAA Four Corners, home to the EAA AirVenture Welcome Center, the One Week Wonder build, the EAA Pilot Proficiency Center (PPC), and the EAA Member Center are an ideal example of that mission.
The EAA AirVenture Welcome Center is the go-to place for attendees to find out what’s happening around the AirVenture grounds. In addition to supplying information, the Welcome Center will host several events during AirVenture, including speakers, autograph signings from air show performers and authors, and a live recording of The Green Dot podcast on Saturday at 9:30 a.m.
EAA’s new superhero Aviore will make several appearances at the EAA AirVenture Welcome Center throughout the week, and complimentary copies of the first issue of his new comic book will be available for visitors. Authors will be signing autographs daily at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. from Monday through Friday, and at 11 a.m., 11:30 a.m., and 1 p.m. on Saturday.
The One Week Wonder is back in 2018 after more than 2,500 Oshkosh attendees successfully constructed a Zenith CH 750 in just seven days during AirVenture 2014.
The 2018 One Week Wonder airplane will be a Van’s RV-12iS as part of Van’s Aircraft celebration of the company’s 10,000th flying RV.
Pilot safety and excellence is at the forefront of the EAA Pilot Proficiency Center, which offers pilots of all skill levels a chance to advance their aviation abilities. A new addition to the PPC in 2018 is a personalized post-flight debrief provided by CloudAhoy after each simulator flight. Additionally, the AOPA Proficiency Café has been expanded to five days, and will run from July 23-27.
Finally, the EAA Member Center is a haven for EAA members during the hustle and bustle of AirVenture. The Member Center gives opportunities to speak with EAA staff members and ask them questions, renew your membership, explore programs and member benefits, purchase EAA member gear, and much more.
EAA’s government advocacy team will also have a table at the Member Center staffed by aviation doctors and lawyers who will be available to answer member questions during schedule times throughout the week. The legal counsel will be available daily from 8-10 a.m. to EAA members.
The Member Oasis within the Member Center, a popular spot with air conditioning, computer access, and indoor and outdoor seating, will be back again in 2018. The EAA Sweepstakes area has also been moved to the corner just outside the EAA Member Center.
