Through the lens: EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2022

EAA AirVenture Oshkosh is not just any show, so we dispatched one of our best—AOPA Senior Photographer David Tulis—to document the epic sights.

Those of you at the show, remember to stop by the AOPA Campus for events and demonstrations through the week. During the Pilot Town Hall on July 28, AOPA President Mark Baker will formally present our 2022 sweepstakes winner, Alex Browne, with his Grumman Tiger, which will be on display all week alongside the AOPA 2023 Sweepstakes Cessna 170B (before it goes into the first of several shops it will visit before we are done). Baker and senior AOPA leaders will also have updates on hot topics including the future of fuel, and safety.

Our AOPA Flight Training Advantage will be demonstrated in group sessions held at 1 p.m. Central time on July 25 and 29, and private demonstrations can also be arranged.

Our Member Services and Pilot Information Center staff will provide onsite services, Air Safety Institute safety seminars are scheduled, and our store will also be open all week.
