Only in Oshkosh

Experience the largest annual gathering of aircraft and aviation enthusiasts.
One Week Wonder

The goal of the One Week Wonder project is to build a kit aircraft during the week of AirVenture. Attendees will get their own hands-on experience in the construction process by pulling a rivet on the aircraft.

The aircraft chosen for this year’s One Week Wonder is a Sonex Waiex from Sonex Aircraft.

Pick the Paint Scheme

The possible paint schemes have been narrowed from 10 candidates to the 3 finalists. Stop by the One Week Wonder booth at AirVenture to vote for your favorite. The winning paint scheme will be announced on Sunday, July 31, at 10am.

Volunteer Ambassadors

As part of the One Week Wonder project at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2022, EAA is looking for homebuilding ambassadors — volunteers who are eager to talk to others and answer questions about the project.

Homebuilding ambassadors are ideally active builders or those who have previously completed a homebuilt aircraft. EAA is looking for people who are welcoming, enthusiastic, and who can help others along the homebuilding journey — to take them from, “That is a crazy idea,” to “I can do this!”

If you are outgoing and positive about homebuilding and the future of aviation, we encourage you to volunteer. This is one of the best opportunities EAA and the general aviation community has to convince potentially thousands of people to explore the exciting and rewarding world of homebuilding.

Volunteering is a great way to get more involved with AirVenture, make new friends, and have fun.

We want to show the world at AirVenture 2022 that you CAN build an aircraft! We need about 300 photos of EAA members’ finished and flying homebuilt aircraft. One big wall in our booth will be a montage of completed homebuilt aircraft photos as background. Please help us by submitting a photo of your completed homebuilt.
