EAA Responds To AirVenture Cup Race Issue

Says The Organization Did Not Pull Its Support For The event

In response to ANN's, and likely other media requests, EAA has issued a statement concerning the cancellation of this year's AirVenture Cup Race. The cancellation of the event this year has caused a lot of chatter on aviation bulletin boards and other discussion sites.

EAA said it did not cancel the event, but rather that the race's organizers opted for cancellation. Spokesman Dick Knapinski (pictured) said in an e-mailed statment  that a group of EAA volunteers founded and have organized the race for more than a decade. The race completes its competition outside Oshkosh, with the competitors then flying together for a mass arrival during AirVenture. As part of the race, EAA does assist race organizers with volunteer benefits and exhibit space.

Since last year, there have been discussions with race organizers on better defining the event and its relationship to EAA, including clarifying name and branding elements. Knapinski said that EAA encouraged organizers to continue the race and will continue to offer race organizers volunteer benefits.
