ANN/Airborne Special Programming Highlights: Oshkosh 2019

We're REALLY Going To Miss Bringing You OSH2020, But Here's The Next Best Thing...

The Aero-News Network, throughout its history of nearly a half million stories and tens of thousands of multi-media productions, is particularly proud of our special event coverage and programming. But... no event stirs our souls nearly as much as Oshkosh does... an event that ANN's CEO and Editor-In-Chief has been attending for nearly half a century (yup... he's getting WAY old...). And yet... 2020 is going to be the first year without an Oshkosh in our adult memories... so what to do? Well; the best bet to is to celebrate all the goodness and excitement of past AirVentures and make serious preparation to come back in 2021, with a vengeance.

Also: Summering... On Mars, Hartzell Engine Tech, 2020 FAI General Conference, Gogo Inflight

American Legend Aircraft Company has unveiled its MOAC, a.k.a. the Mother Of All Cubs, a backcountry edition of the Legend Cub. While rooted in the legendary Super Cub, MOAC is a thorough remake and all new construction from the hands of American Legend. MOAC incorporates numerous performance enhancing features and is purposely built for the backcountry operations. MOAC is the most exciting way to fly low, and slow, while driving performance to the extreme.
