We are in need of some dedicated volunteers to help in the Volunteer Kitchen. Volunteers in this area prepare and serve meals to all volunteers the week prior to AirVenture through the conclusion of AirVenture. If you would rather work alone, we also have need for individuals to help with washing dishes. We ask that you are able to volunteer for a minimum of 2 hours. Assistance is needed throughout each day.
Please contact Erin Hartse at email@example.com or 612-275-9321if interested in volunteering with the Volunteer Kitchen.
The Trams team is in need of volunteers. Drivers are volunteers that drive the trams on specific routes around the site. Experience driving tractors or similar equipment may be helpful for tram drivers but is not required. Must have a current driver’s license and be a minimum of 21 years old. Conductors are volunteers that ride on the back of the trams to give directions and provide general event information to passengers. Safety volunteers are located at busy stops and direct people to the right area and keep the area safe. For all volunteer positions, experience required is: knowledge of the AirVenture grounds, assisting handicapped individuals using the tram, and well as friendly demeanor. Shifts available are 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The Aircraft Greeters are volunteers who "meet and greet" the transient pilots as they arrive at AirVenture. Along with greeting the pilots, you will remind them to tie down their airplanes before leaving the plane, close their flight plans if needed, ensure master switch is off, hand out flyers with pilot info with row number parked in, issue fuel tickets, direct them to the North 40 Registration building, and answer any questions they may have. This role does require that the volunteer be able to stand or be walking in a grass parking area around moving aircraft. Work shifts vary from 2.5 to 4 hours with most shifts running 3.5 hours. We advise that volunteers wear comfortable shoes, a hat, and use sunscreen. Being an Aircraft Volunteer is a good way to get up close to a lot of different types of planes and meet their pilots. Aircraft Greeters must be 18 years or older and must attend a briefing prior to working the airfield.
Please contact Dennis Spivey at dennis.spivey@Comcast.net if interested in volunteering with the Aircraft Greeters.

Forums Hosts are always looking for volunteers, particularly in the last few days of AirVenture. We greet, and assist, the presenters in the Forums area.

It is a fun way to meet interesting Forums speakers and hear their presentations, contribute to the continued success of AirVenture, and make some new friends among the many volunteers who help us each year. No experience needed.
