View 2016 Skiplane Fly-In Photos
One of the area’s most colorful events of the season returns for its 25th year. The annual EAA Skiplane Fly-In, will be held on Saturday, February 18, at the EAA Aviation Museum’s Pioneer Airport in Oshkosh. Guests are welcome to enjoy the sights and sounds of Pioneer Airport while enjoying a warm bowl of soup or chili and a sweet treat. This special, free-of-charge, winter event celebrates the unique flight segment of skiplane flying as well as the anniversary of the first-ever meeting of the Experimental Aircraft Association on January 26, 1953.
Please note that because of the warm weather, skiplanes will not operate this year. However, a skiplane will be on display and volunteers will be on hand to describe skiplane operations. Hangars will be open and available to the public to explore as well. The EAA Aviation Museum will be open as well (regular hours and normal admission rates apply).
Signs will direct visitors to the Pioneer Airport area upon arrival to the museum. Shuttle services will also operate from Basler Flight Service for those flying in and landing at Wittman Regional Airport.
Please contact EAA’s Olivia Rasmus at 920-426-6599 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to address any air operations questions.
