Help pick the paint scheme for the One Week Wonder at EAA AirVenture 2022!

Voting continues through mid-June

EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wisconsin – (March 24, 2022) – &ldquo Aviation enthusiasts will be able to choose their favorite paint design for this year’s One Week Wonder aircraft being built in a seven-day period during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2022. The 69th edition of the Experimental Aircraft Association’s fly-in convention is July 25-31 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

This year’s project will begin on Monday morning, July 25, with a goal to taxi the airplane on Sunday afternoon, July 31, featuring a Sonex Waiex powered by a Rotax 912iS engine. Volunteer builders will be joined by thousands of AirVenture attendees who will “pop a rivet” and become part of the builder’s log for the aircraft.

Voting for the airplane’s paint scheme is currently underway, with 10 options created by Craig Barnett, CEO of Scheme Designers Inc., on the ballot at EAA.org/Paint22. The first round of voting, which ends on June 15, 2022, will narrow the list to three finalists that will again be open for in-person at the One Week Wonder tent during AirVenture 2022. The winning paint scheme will be announced on Sunday, July 31, during AirVenture week.

“What’s fun about the One Week Wonder project is not only the challenge of building an airplane in a week, but engaging aviation enthusiasts in the project, whether they’re on-site in Oshkosh or voting on the paint design from anywhere in the world,” said Charlie Becker, EAA’s homebuilt community manager. “The winning paint design will undoubtedly make this airplane stand out even more as it takes flight.”

The One Week Wonder “Pick The Paint” contest is presented by The Sherwin-Williams Company and supported by Scheme Designers Inc. The completed aircraft will be painted with Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings.

Additional supporters of the 2022 One Week Wonder project include Sonex Aircraft, Aircraft Spruce & Specialty, and Rotax.
