October 12, 2016 - Advance purchase admission tickets and camping credentials are now available for the 65th annual EAA AirVenture Oshkosh fly-in, providing greater convenience for those traveling to the World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration. The week-long event will be held July 24-30 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh.
EAA members and the general public can purchase tickets via a secure website and speed through the admissions process upon arrival in Oshkosh. Daily and weekly admissions are available, including the ability to join EAA and immediately receive the best possible prices. Discounts of $2 on daily adult admissions and $5 on weekly adult admissions are available by purchasing prior to June 16, 2017. Special discounts are also available for veterans and current U.S. military members. There are also early-bird specials for non-EAA members.
“EAA AirVenture remains one of the most affordable family-friendly destinations, featuring a gathering of aircraft, people, innovations, attractions and performances you’ll see no place else in the world,” said Dave Chaimson, EAA vice president of marketing and business development. “This advance purchase opportunity is the best way to be fully ready for an unforgettable experience at Oshkosh, while saving money at the same time. It’s also a great resource for those who want to give that special gift for the aviation enthusiast.”
Highlighted features planned for EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2017 include the Year of the Bomber, honoring the 75th anniversary of the 8th Air Force and the Doolittle Raid; the 90th anniversary of Charles Lindbergh’s solo trans-Atlantic flight; 80th anniversary of the Piper J-3 Cub; and the 25th anniversary of EAA’s Young Eagles program. The multi-platinum band Barenaked Ladies will perform in the always anticipated opening-night concert on Monday, July 24, presented by Ford Motor Company.
Along with daily and weekly AirVenture admission, there is a special weekend camping package covering the final three days of the event that includes one EAA membership, camping credentials, and weekly admission for four adults – a five percent savings over buying those items separately.
