AirVenture Goes Virtual to Showcase Flight
AirVenture joins the list of major aviation events that have gone online to bring the aviation community together during this pandemic. The 2020 event has been canceled because of the coronavirus, but EAA is launching a virtual AirVenture to continue to share aviation with the world.
On its website, EAA said it intends to make the week of July 21 to 25 a celebration of “the entire aviation community by showcasing the spectrum of flight in a virtual way.” In a June 4 press release, EAA shared that the virtual event “will include streamed and on-demand content, encompassing nearly every subset of aviation, with a focus on educational, informational, and entertaining content,” along with some special “highlights that include homebuilts, warbirds, vintage, aerobatics, ultralights, and much more.”
The event is sure to be packed with everything enthusiasts have come to expect from AirVenture and so much more. Taking a quick peek at what EAA has developed thus far, we can anticipate nearly a week packed full of interviews and discussions with aviation pros, military performers, NASA pilots and astronauts. There are also forums, historical content, homebuilding workshops and tips, pilot proficiency content, and hangar flying.
