After a successful appearance last year at EAA’s AirVenture, NAAA will once again exhibit at AirVenture 2017 in Oshkosh, Wis., July 24-30. NAAA has partnered with Air Tractor and Thrush Aircraft. The items on display in the NAAA exhibit area are an Air Tractor and Thrush aircraft. NAAA has placed an advertisement on pg. 43 in the AirVenture Visitor’s Guide which can be viewed here
AirVenture Oshkosh, which is organized by the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) each summer at Wittnam Regional Airport is a weeklong celebration of aviation. Nearly 10,000 aircraft will be on display while more than 800 exhibitors, 1,000 forums and workshops, 4,800 volunteers and approximately 550,000 visitors are expected this year.
NAAA exhibits at AirVenture bring more awareness to careers in the aerial application industry because the weeklong show is flooded with aviation enthusiasts, military personnel and young aviators looking for new opportunities. AirVenture is one of the largest airshows in the United States and NAAA’s presence will help to recruit potential new ag pilots.
Moreover, it’s a wonderful way to educate adults and children about the importance of our industry in producing a safe, affordable and abundant supply of food, fiber and bio-fuel, in addition to protecting forestry and controlling health-threatening pests. The representation by our industry at AirVenture is a move in the right direction to bring positive awareness about aerial application to the general public.
July is a very busy time of year for ag pilots; however, we know some operators and pilots visit AirVenture and some even exhibit their own aircraft. If you’ll be at AirVenture, visit us in Booths 439-441 in the main aircraft display area near the traffic control tower. If you’ll be exhibiting your aircraft, let us know where you’ll be
! There are also many NAAA Allied members who exhibit each year and we encourage you to visit with them if you are onsite.
