Booth 1054 in Hanger A
“A half-century ago, EAA founder Paul Poberezny saw Oshkosh as the perfect place to bring together aviation enthusiasts. Oshkosh has become synonymous with the World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration so it’s natural that we commemorate 50 consecutive years here with events that involve those who attend and those who have made the city such a welcoming place for aviators.”- Rick Larsen, EAA’s vice president of communities and member programs, who coordinates AirVenture features and attractions.
The EAA AirVenture Oshkosh is a premier aviation event that attracts top government officials, corporate leaders, and hundreds of thousands of aviation enthusiasts. During the week-long show, Wittman Regional Airport becomes the world's busiest airport by traffic movements. In 2018 more than 10,000 aircraft arrived at Wittman or other surrounding airports. Everything from warbirds, vintage, homebuilt, ultralight, jets, current military aircraft and some of the world's largest planes fly in. Last years events brought in approximately 601,000 attendees.
AirVenture will host daily air shows with aerobatics and pyrotechnics, nightly concerts, aircraft rides, and much more. More importantly, the show will host several forums, workshops, and demonstrations for participants to get hands-on experience building an aircraft. Many of these events are hosted by individuals and companies that A.E.D. has had the pleasure of partnering with throughout the year. A.E.D. supplies the welding coupons for Lincoln Electric’s Tig Welding Workshop and the sheet metal and tubing for Wings Metal Works' Vintage Metal Shaping Demonstration.
A.E.D. will be presenting our full line of fabrication including 4130 Chrome Moly products, aluminum products, and our High-Performance Streamline Tube. We will also be showing our complete line Valco Cincinnati consumer goods and our line of Mister Tig AC/DC portable TIG welders. These welders are perfect for the home hobbyist or the professional maintenance team. During the off hours of the show, A.E.D. will be visiting with numerous customers and friends, such as Kitfox Aircraft, Waco Classic, Just Aircraft, Aircraft Spruce, Zeniths Aircraft, Magni Gyro and Flyboy to name a few.
