EAA AirVenture is the world’s largest aviation celebration! Every summer, thousands descend upon Oshkosh, Wisconsin for a week of seminars, presentations, expensive shopping and to share memories of the spectacle that occurs every summer! For many, it is an event that people revolve their entire year around! Due to the active COVID-19 pandemic, EAA AirVenture 2020 is going to be a virtual event! While it may not be the same, this event makes it possible for every person from all around the world to experience a bit of what makes “OSH - AirVenture” so special!
In place of AirVenture, EAA is hosting “Spirit of Aviation Week” from July 21-25, 2020. The online event will feature a collection of almost 200 seminars, presentations and discussions covering every aspect of aviation (military aviation, instrument flying, flight training, ownership, homebuliding, commercial aviation, and even Air Traffic Controlling). The streaming content will be a mix of live events and prerecorded seminars from previous AirVentures! Either way, this event is sure to bring together the aviation community for the week!

How It’ll Work
While we can’t gather in person for the great forum sessions this year… EAA has brought the next best thing; Virtual Sessions!
These sessions are split up into 3 categories:
- Live-streamed webinars
- Face-to-Face/Voice forums
- Pre-Recorded sessions from prior years
For the live-streamed webinars, no login will be required and you will be able to watch most of these via YouTube Live or via one of the 3 ‘Live Stream’ Servers (each session has its own livestream server for a timeslot)
For the Face-to-Face (or voice) forum sessions, a registration will be required and a meeting ID will be emailed to you in order for you to join the forum.
For the pre-recorded sessions will also be on YouTube or shown on one of the 3 ‘Live Stream’ Servers. No log in will be required and these sessions will be pre recorded from a few days ago all the way back to the origin of EAA AirVenture!
