EAA’s Pioneer Airport in Oshkosh will be transformed into a fun fly zone on Saturday, June 17, as up to two dozen ultralights and light planes descend onto the grass airstrip to participate in EAA’s Ultralight Day 2017.

As part of the event, invited members of EAA Ultralight Chapter 1 (Southern Wisconsin), Chapter 75 (North Central Wisconsin), and Chapter 1331 (Central Wisconsin) will use special procedures to fly their ultralights and light planes to Pioneer Airport in two mass arrivals between 9-10 a.m., weather permitting. (Special Arrival Procedures Required.) 

Beginning at 1 p.m., pilots will conduct several pilot proficiency events, which include accuracy landings, bean bag drops, and torpedo run contests. Any competitor who scores in the top three of each event will receive a special plaque.

“This is a great opportunity for anyone visiting the EAA Aviation Museum to see ultralight planes up close and learn more about this fun, affordable segment of aviation,” said Timm Bogenhagen, EAA ultralight & light-plane community manager. “Affordable fun is the core of this kind of flying.”

These unique flying machines vary in style and design, ranging in types from powered parachutes to traditional fixed wing aircraft.

Anyone who wants to have a fun afternoon learning about this fun and unique segment of flight can attend Ultralight Day. Vintage aircraft rides (not ultralights) are available for purchase, and lunch will be available for purchase from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. 

Admission to the activities is included with regular museum admission for non-EAA members, and is free for EAA members.

Visitor Information

Visitors must park in the Museum parking lot and enter through the main Museum entrance doors. A tram will run between the Aviation Museum and Pioneer Airport all day beginning at 8:30 a.m.  

For more information, call Timm Bogenhagen at 920-426-6831.
