EAA Skiplane Fly-In Set for Saturday, February 10
January 18, 2018 - One of Oshkosh’s most colorful events of the winter season, the annual EAA Skiplane Fly-In, will be held on Saturday, February 10, at the EAA Aviation Museum’s Pioneer Airport.
In past years, more than 25 skiplanes have landed at Pioneer Airport each year to participate in the free event..
Skiplanes may arrive (weather and runway conditions permitting) during the mid-morning of February 10, and will stay until mid-afternoon. In case weather or snow conditions do not permit aircraft arrivals at Pioneer Airport that day, other activities will continue as planned, including complimentary chili and cookies served beginning at 10:30 a.m., as well as a slideshow highlighting previous EAA skiplane fly-in activities. Skiplane pilots who wish to participate must receive approval and flight briefings from EAA prior to landing at Pioneer Airport. Contact EAA’s Miranda LaBrec at 920-426-6597 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
New this year is that one lucky child will have the unique opportunity to take their Young Eagles flight in a skiplane. Children between the ages of 8 and 17 will be eligible to enter a drawing for that free introductory Young Eagles flight during the event (weather permitting).
Signs will direct drive-in visitors to the skiplane area upon arrival to the museum. Shuttle services will also operate from Basler Flight Service for those landing at Wittman Regional Airport. We welcome all skiplane fly-in guests to stay and explore our museum after the event. Regular admission rates apply for anyone visiting the museum itself.
