April 2024 – Yes, the countdown is on to AirVenture 2024, which starts on July 22. I’m really excited to announce that we have confirmed that our beloved Snowbirds will be our special guests at the Canadian Breakfast! To accommodate their schedule, we have had to change the date to Friday morning, July 26. There is no charge for the tickets, but remember they are available at our Canadian Pavilion, to a maximum of two per EAA Canadian member.

Are you flying your aircraft to AirVenture? Would you like to proudly showcase your aircraft on the grassed area in front of the Canadian Pavilion? Please email me to express your interest, and I can let you know what is involved with that (EAA has procedures for timing and process to move the aircraft in and out of place).

Phillip Johnson is actively planning our Little Canada camping area. If you are interested in camping with us, whether it be for a short or long period, please email Phil at chapters.eaacc@gmail.com. We are also seeking a local, Oshkosh contact that might be able to help us out. If you have a contact that may be open to our call, please let Phil know.

Our presentation schedule must be submitted to EAA by mid-May. So, will you be at AirVenture and have a presentation you’d like to make? I might add that we had requests last year for presentations in French, as well as French-speaking volunteers in our pavilion. Our goal is to have someone that can speak French on each volunteer shift. If you are interested in volunteering, whether you are bilingual or not, please email me! Come and join our Canadian fun — even for one half-day shift! Lunch is provided for each volunteer, at the beginning or end of your shift.

I’m working with the EAA marketing team for our Canadian component on eaa.org. If you have suggestions for Canadian content that will be placed in a section on the website under the ‘Canadian’ banner, please let me know!

We are putting together a team of volunteers to deal with advocacy. Thank you to those who have come forward so far. I’ll be calling a virtual meeting shortly to discuss some of the issues that have been raised by Canadian chapters and EAA members.

Yes, we’ve got lots on the go! Please email me at chair.eaacc@gmail.com.
