    Centennial of Naval Aviation, return of Night Air Show among highlights
    October 1, 2010
    - EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wis. The countdown has started for EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2011, which will be held July 25-31 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wis., as planning is now underway for the 59th annual edition of “The World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration.”

    Among the highlighted activities next summer at Oshkosh will be the Centennial of Naval Aviation. AirVenture has already been named as one of the U.S. Navy’s top tier events for support throughout the service’s year-long recognition of 100 years of naval aviation. EAA Warbirds of America encourages all pilots & owners of any former Naval aircraft to plan now to be part of the Centennial of Naval Aviation activities at EAA AirVenture 2011.

    In addition, the centennial of air mail service is being recognized in 2011, and events at Oshkosh will include that notable anniversary. Progress is also continuing on a number of other top-level attractions and programs for 2011.

    After a widely popular debut in 2010, the AirVenture night air show is also scheduled to return and be held in conjunction with fireworks on Saturday, July 30. Other family orientated entertainment options will be scheduled both on the ground and in the air throughout the week.

    “The planning for events at AirVenture never really stops. We just catch our breath for a few days after the end of each year’s fly-in,” said EAA chairman Tom Poberezny, who continues to serve as AirVenture chairman. “Expectations are always high for what’s going to be at Oshkosh each year, and we’re making sure that those expectations for excitement, innovation and value are met and exceeded.”

    On the grounds, site improvements that began in 2009 will continue over the coming months. Some points of emphasis include improving drainage in areas that were submerged during record-setting rains last July prior to AirVenture 2010. Exhibit areas, aircraft parking, and the drive-in Camp Scholler are among those areas receiving priority attention.

    Additional information and details will be announced and posted at www.airventure.org as they are finalized.
