EAA, Boeing Extend Agreement for Collaboration at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh


EAA is pleased to announce the extension of its Platinum-Level sponsorship with The Boeing Company. EAA’s relationship with Boeing dates back to 1989 and Boeing’s presence has grown into one of the largest vendor footprints on the AirVenture grounds.

With this 3-year agreement, Boeing will retain the naming rights of Boeing Plaza, and continue its commitment to provide AirVenture admission at no cost to all youth attendees 18 and younger. Other components include Jeppesen and ForeFlight product representation in the Pilot Proficiency Center, management of the Airline Crew Check-in, presenting sponsor of WomenVenture, and continued support of KidVenture.

Commenting on the renewed agreement with Boeing, Jack Pelton, EAA CEO/Chairman said, “Boeing’s involvement with EAA and AirVenture means more people can engage with aviation at Oshkosh.” Pelton continued, “Boeing’s support of our free youth admission allows families to enjoy our event and discover flight, while EAA WomenVenture inspires women to pursue their dreams, and Boeing Plaza is known worldwide for a gathering of airplanes seen nowhere else but Oshkosh.”

“AirVenture is not just a general aviation event; the commercial, business, and military representation is massive, which makes it a perfect venue to showcase our diverse collection of Boeing products and services,” said Brad Surak, vice president of Digital Aviation Solutions for Boeing’s Global Services business. Surak continued, “EAA is an organization with impressive global reach, and our collaboration is important on many levels. AirVenture is a platform that allows us to do many things – from assessing market interest of new products to inspiring the next generation of aviation professionals.”
