Team RV To Fly First AirVenture Performance

Oshkosh Fly-In Is "Hometown Crowd" For World's Largest Air Show Team

Team RV, the world's largest formation aerobatic team, will fill the sky for aviation fans from around the globe at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2012. With Monday and Wednesday performances, this diverse group of civilian aviators in their RV series aircraft intends to exceed expectations of even the most seasoned air show enthusiasts.

It may seem fitting for Team RV to fly this year given the 40th anniversary celebration honoring the first Vans (RV Series) aircraft. Beyond that, this 10-year-old team has earned its place among the world's top performers with one of the most memorable and appealing aerial displays.  In the official announcement of Team RV's selection for AirVenture, Jim DiMatteo, EAA Vice President for AirVenture Features and Attractions, said "Team RV is changing the face of air shows throughout the country with its unique and exciting performance."

The fast, aerodynamic, and brightly colored planes create a constant whirl of activity in the aerobatic box. Spectators don't know where to look next as they follow exciting rejoins, extended trail chases, graceful aerobatics, and the team's signature large formation photo passes.
   
Because of their homebuilt, experimental aircraft, Team RV pilots feel a special connection to the AirVenture crowd. Mike "Kahuna" Stewart, flight lead and founder of the group, said "Flying in Oshkosh is like playing a championship game in your hometown. We receive tremendous support from EAA members and homebuilders from across the country and the world. We want to hit a home run and put on our best performance here.'
