2017 Lindy Award Winners Announced

Best aircraft at AirVenture recognized

July 29, 2017 - Every year at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, hundreds of aircraft arrive to be entered into competition for the highly sought-after Lindy Awards. Named after legendary aviator Charles Lindbergh, the Lindy Awards are given out to only the best of the best.

Aircraft can be entered into one of six categories: Homebuilts, Warbirds, Vintage, Ultralights, Seaplanes, and Rotorcraft. Aircraft can only be entered in one category per year, and are not eligible for the same or lower tier awards if it has won in the past.

Lindy Award judging takes into account how an aircraft looks, of course, but the degree of craftsmanship involved plays an important role as well. Award-winning aircraft don’t just look pretty, they are carefully built, restored, and/or maintained by owners who take great pride in them. For the list of 2017 Lindy Award winners, turn to page 6.

Below are this year's AirVenture 2017 aircraft awards.

Categories: Homebuilt | Vintage | Warbird | Rotorcraft | Ultralight & LSA | Seaplane
