Seeking GA experiences of fun, adventure, inspiration

EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wisconsin — (March 26, 2021) — The opportunity for an EAA AirVenture Oshkosh once-in-a-lifetime camping experience is the grand prize in the EAA “Pilot Your Own Adventure” contest, supported by Flight Outfitters, beginning in April.

“Aviators around the world share a passion for adventure and relish both the journey and the destination that celebrate the fun, freedoms, and friendships of flight,” said Jim Busha, EAA’s vice president of publications, marketing, and membership. "We want to hear those stories of real-life aviation getaways so we and Flight Outfitters can share them with the world and give people the opportunity to create another unforgettable memory at Oshkosh."

Aviators can enter by writing 500 to 1,000 words about flying a non-commercial general aviation aircraft to a unique adventure, whether that is a particular place, an event, the people and/or fun environment, or anything else memorable. It must be an actual event and include three to six photos with captions of up to 30 words.

“We're so excited to be partnering with EAA and can't wait to see our tagline of Pilot Your Own Adventure come to life through the experiences of the GA community," said Mark Glassmeyer, Flight Outfitters president. "We've always said the A in Adventure is for Aviation, as most once in a lifetime trips start and end with a flight."

The contest opens on April 1, 2021 and closes on June 1, 2021. Entries can be submitted either online or via the mail. Along with the camping experience at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2021 in a fully branded Flight Outfitters camper, the grand prize winner will receive a bounty of Flight Outfitters clothing and gear. Second through fifth prizes will also be awarded.

Full details and entry information are available at EAA.org/FlightOutfitters.
