Is It July Yet? AirVenture Calendar Coming Together

Top Air Show Performers Make Early Commitments For 2011

Many of the world's top air show performers have already given early confirmations to participate at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2011, July 25-31 at Wittman Regional Airport.

Among the highlights for the afternoon air show lineup in 2011 is a dual act featuring Chuck Aaron's Red Bull aerobatic helicopter and Kirby Chambliss' Edge, the AeroShell Aerobatic Team, Matt Younkin and his Twin Beech, and the Warbird Spectaculars. Also scheduled are the Airshow Aces featuring Gene Soucy along with Kent and Warren Pietsch performing an old style barnstorming act, as well as Team Chaos staging a modification of the Masters of Disasters act.


AeroShell Aerobatic Team

"Each of these performers work as a headline act at air shows throughout the country, but they come together at EAA AirVenture to make an all-star roster of the 'best of the best,'" said Tom Poberezny, EAA and AirVenture chairman, who flew as a member of the renowned Eagles Aerobatic Team and was named to the International Council of Air Shows Hall of Fame in 2009. "Air show performers are eager to fly at Oshkosh because it represents a major achievement in their careers, flying in front of the most knowledgeable and appreciative audiences on the air show circuit."

The afternoon air show is an anticipated spectacle each day at EAA AirVenture, providing an exciting way to round out to a full day on the Oshkosh flight line. In 2011, the best elements of the daily air show and the "showcase" flying from previous years will again be combined to provide several hours of exciting and entertaining aerial entertainment.


Night Airshow

Additionally, the widely popular Night Air Show and Fireworks return on Saturday, July 30, to thrill attendees with a mix of aerobatics and pyrotechnics all musically choreographed.

"Each afternoon's showcase and air show create a daily attraction that simply cannot be seen anywhere else but EAA AirVenture," Poberezny said. "Oshkosh is the place where the airplanes, people and innovations come together each year in aviation's family reunion."

Several top-level attractions and events will also commemorate the Centennial of Naval Aviation  at AirVenture 2011, which has been classified a Tier 1 event by the U.S. Navy for its year-long celebration. Special themed days include "Tribute to Bob Hoover" Day on Tuesday, July 26, Navy Day on Wednesday, July 27, and "Tribute to Burt Rutan" Day on Thursday, July 28.
