2010 AirVenture - Oshkosh is just around the corner.
Royale Coach Club members and friends are invited to the great Oshkosh AirVenture this summer, July 26 - August 1.  EAA AirVenture annually draws participants from more than 70 nations and in excess of 10,000 airplanes, including more than 2,500 show planes. The event includes 800 exhibitors with the latest aviation innovations; nearly 1,000 forums, workshops and seminars covering every aspect of the world of flight; daily afternoon air shows featuring the world’s finest aerobatic performers; up-close and personal sessions with top aviation personalities; and the gathering of aviation enthusiasts from around the globe coming home to “aviation’s family reunion.”
Bob Hansen, our rally-master, has been to this event almost every year since the early 80’s.  There is no rally fee; all expenses will be “pay as you go”.

WALK & RIDE
There may be a lot of walking involved.  Scooters, golf carts, etc. are not allowed on the flight line or inside the AirVenture grounds, but they are allowed in the campgrounds.  There is parking for them before you enter the show grounds, so you can ride them up to the entrance gate.  From the south end to the north end where the warbirds park is about a mile and 3/4ths. From the campgrounds to the flight line, it is a mile to a mile and a half. Trams run all day from one end of the grounds to the other.  You cannot see everything in one day. There are four large (200 X 200) exhibit buildings plus a number of other buildings that house NASA, Air Force, Forest Service, FAA, etc.
