Ready for Oshkosh 2016

On Saturday, 30 July we’re once again heading to the Experimental Aircraft Association’s AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. With over 10,000 aircraft and 500,000 people every year, AirVenture—or just Oshkosh—is always an amazing aviation event. This year at Oshkosh, much of the focus is on the celebration of Boeing’s 100th anniversary. As part of that celebration, Cathay Pacific is bringing one of their Boeing 747-8F freighters and we have something very special planned. (more…)

Our Weekend at EAA AirVenture

This weekend we attended the Experimental Aircraft Association’s annual AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin and had a wonderful time seeing the sights and talking to people about Flightradar24. We arrived on Friday and stayed through Sunday, exploring the various pavilions, exhibits, and enjoying multiple air shows, including a Saturday night show capped by an impressive fireworks display.

With 500,000 attendees from over 73 countries this year, AirVenture is the largest gathering of aviation enthusiasts in the world. It was nice to be surrounded by people who are as passionate as we are about aviation and we enjoyed talking with many of them about hosting a Flightradar24 receiver. We’re always looking for new receiver hosts, if you’re interested, please see our post about the application process and how to apply.

Below is a gallery of photos from our visit to AirVenture and we hope to see many of you there next year!
