February 28, 2019 - EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, long known for showcasing the latest flight technology, welcomes cutting edge innovation to this year’s event with the addition of the Urban Air Mobility Showcase as part of the World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration.
Sponsored by TransportUP – The Latest News for Urban Aviation, EAA’s Urban Air Mobility Showcase will highlight autonomous air vehicles, hover bikes, personal air vehicles, and leader VTOLs (vertical takeoff and landing vehicles). There are also scheduled speakers, forums, and an executive roundtable that brings industry leaders together to discuss the rapid evolution of this technology.
“The world of flight is continually advancing and Oshkosh has been the site where innovations have been showcased for a half-century,” said Dave Chaimson, EAA’s vice president of marketing and business development. “Urban air mobility and the next wave of experimental aircraft are moving forward at a breathtaking rate, with ideas, investments, and possibilities emerging that will change the way we transport ourselves. TransportUP’s support allows EAA to bring these technologies and concepts to the worldwide audience that attends AirVenture each year.”
The Urban Air Mobility Showcase is one of the four featured areas at EAA’s Aviation Gateway Park, which also encompasses the Innovation Showcase, the Education and Career Center, and a forum pavilion. The focus throughout Aviation Gateway Park is on innovation and possibilities within the world of flight.
“Oshkosh has long been synonymous with showcasing innovation and progress in aviation,” said Naish Gaubatz, editor of TransportUP. “It’s the perfect place to introduce the exciting breakthroughs in Urban Air Mobility that are on the horizon, and given TransportUP’s close connection to this community, AirVenture is an ideal location for the support and showcase of this technology from new and existing aviation partners.”
Complete schedules of forums and activities, as well as participating companies, will be announced as they are finalized.
