EAA AIRVENTURE OSHKOSH DATES SET THROUGH 2020
EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, one of the world's premier aviation events, has set its dates for the next seven years through 2020. While the 62nd annual EAA fly-in convention at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wis., will be held on July 28-August 3, future years will schedule the event to run completely in late July. That slight schedule shift affects only three or four years out of every seven, with a goal of ending on the last Sunday in July each year.
