Fun Fly Zone Celebrates Ultralights, LSA, and Rotorcraft at AirVenture 2024

EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2024 attendees can experience one of the more accessible sides of aviation by visiting the Fun Fly Zone located south of the Vintage area along Wittman Road. The area is home to ultralight vehicles, light-sport aircraft (LSA), homebuilt rotorcraft, and hot air balloons, 60 commercial exhibitors, and a 900-foot grass runway adjacent to the Ultralight Barn.

The ultralights pattern has been updated for 2024. Pilots flying in this area must obtain and possess a copy of the current FAA NOTICE and follow the procedures outlined on page 21.

Daily grass runway operations during AirVenture run from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. with a break from 2:30 to 6:30 p.m. for the afternoon air show. The flight schedule is divided into time periods to allow similar aircraft in the pattern at the same time. A mass hot air balloon launch is also scheduled for 6 a.m. on Saturday, July 27.

Twilight Flight Fest begins at 8 p.m. at the Fun Fly Zone on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday of AirVenture (July 22, 23, 25, and 26), offering demonstrations of a variety of aircraft including powered paramotors, STOL airplanes, RC aircraft, and skydivers. Twilight Flight Fest is sponsored by Horizon Hobby.

Two ultralights are celebrating anniversaries this year: the Titan Tornado (30 years) and the Mini Max (40 years). Pilots who plan on flying either of these to AirVenture are encouraged to pre-register online.

More information on the Ultralights area can be found on the Ultralights area page of the EAA website.
