One of the area’s most colorful events of the season, the annual EAA Skiplane Fly-In, will be held on Saturday, February 6, at the EAA AirVenture Museum’s Pioneer Airport in Oshkosh. This special winter event, which has welcomed more than 30 skiplanes in the past, celebrates the unique flight segment of skiplane flying as well as the anniversary of the first-ever meeting of the Experimental Aircraft Association on January 26, 1953.
The event begins at 10 a.m. and runs until 1:30 p.m. and is free of charge to the general public. The majority of skiplanes will arrive (weather and runway conditions permitting) mid-morning and stay until mid-afternoon. If weather or snow conditions do not permit aircraft arrivals at Pioneer Airport on February 6, other activities will continue as planned, including complimentary chili and cake served beginning at 10:30 a.m.
Signs will direct visitors to the skiplane area upon arrival to the museum. Shuttle services will also operate from Basler Flight Service for those landing at Wittman Regional Airport. Regular admission rates apply for guests visiting the museum itself.
Pilots who wish to participate must receive approval and flight briefings from EAA prior to landing at Pioneer Airport. Register your aircraft and participate in the Skiplane Fly-In here.
