EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018

Wittman Regional Airport will soon hold the title of world’s busiest airport – at least for one week. From July 23-29, more than 10,000 aircraft and a half a million flight enthusiasts will descend for the annual Experimental Aircraft Association fly-in convention, EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018. Known to many simply as “Oshkosh,” this year’s event will feature the One Week Wonder project. Throughout a seven-day period, volunteers and attendees will build a complete Van’s RV-12. Piece by piece, visitors will assemble the aircraft and sign the builders’ logbook, while discovering the methods and skills that go into building a safe, fun personal aircraft. Construction will begin at 8 a.m. on Monday, July 23 – AirVenture’s opening day – with a goal for completion by the end of the afternoon air show on Sunday, July 29. Event highlights include: One Week Wonder, celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force, WomenVenture, EAA Aviation Museum, KidVenture and many, many more.
