AirVenture App

With so much to do and see, the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh App is the very best way to make sure you don’t miss a thing. Stay on top of the full schedule of 700+ workshops and forums plus locate the 1,200+ exhibitors. You can even create and manage your personal AirVenture schedule all on your phone or tablet.

Log in and use your app to view:

  • Event Notifications
  • Custom Created Schedule
  • List of Exhibitors
  • Food Venues
  • Maps of Grounds, Exhibit Halls, and Workshop/Forum Locations

Camping at AirVenture

At AirVenture, camping can mean setting up your RV or tent at next-door Camp Scholler with basic sites or electric and water hookup upgrades. On the other hand, sleeping under the wing of your own plane in the aircraft camping area is easily the most memorable and rewarding AirVenture camping option.

Costs

General admission daily ticket prices for this year are:

  • Camp Scholler: $30 per day for basic (3 day minimum), $75 per day for electric & water
  • Aircraft Camping: $30 per day (3 day minimum)

Flying into AirVenture

If you’re gearing up to fly to Wittman Regional Airport (KOSH), don’t leave home without the official EAA AirVenture Oshkosh NOTAM. This indispensable publication outlines all arrival and departure procedures, active radio frequencies, airport details and more. Read it well in advance of your flight and review again pre-flight.

AirVenture Packing List

In addition to our standard airshow packing list included in our SUN ‘n FUN guide, here are some bonus items that will make your days (and nights) at Oshkosh more enjoyable.

Aircraft Tie Down

Pilots will want to ensure their aircraft stays grounded until they are ready to depart for home. With a quality aircraft tie down system, you can go enjoy the show with confidence knowing your plane is secure.

Handheld Radio

If you’d like to really immerse yourself in the full airshow experience, a handheld radio is a great way to do so. Yaesu and Icom both offer handheld VHF transceivers.

Umbrella

Summers in Wisconsin are brutally hot. Umbrellas provide great protection from the unrelenting sun and the occasional shower.

Tip: If you’d like to get out of the heat for a while, check out the EAA® Aviation Museum. It’s air conditioned and has a wealth of amazing displays for your viewing pleasure.

AirVenture Prohibited Items

Finally, this guide would not be complete without mentioning what to leave at home (or in your off-site camper). EAA® has a detailed list of prohibited Items not allowed through the admission gate.
