EAA Spirit of Aviation Week | July 21-25, 2020

Highly impressed with the Briefing and Flying an Instrument Approach that is occurring right now. The presenters (Aleks Udris, Colin Cutler) are really professional and have lots of knowledge on this topic!

I’ll certainly be doing self-briefings the way that they presented it the next time that I fly in order to better myself in Infinite Flight as well as the future of my aviation career/hobby!


Been a really fun and productive day for me in terms of listening to webinars and interacting with the aviation community! I’ve attended 3 webinars so far and each and every single one was amazing and really made me think! If you haven’t attended a session yet, what are you waiting for?!

@Balloonchaser you are doing a great job with the thread! Thank you for trying so hard. This makes it easier to endure that the EAA AirVenture can only take place digitally :)

To all of our ATC and student pilot friends out there, an amazing seminar is occurring right now! ATC and You: Communicating with Confidence and Clarity by Richard Kennington, and Bob Obma is all about pilots learning what they need to know to fly safely and efficiently in controlled airspace! Come tune in!


Following this awesome session, The USAF Demo Team composed of Maj John ‘RAIN’ Waters and Maj Garret ‘TORO’ Schmitz of the F-16 Viper Demo Team; Maj Joshua ‘CABO’ Gunderson of the F-22 Demo Team; Maj Cody ‘ShIV’ Wilton of the A-10 Demo Team; and Capt Kristin ‘BEO’ Wolfe of the F-35 Demo Team will be speaking on all of the aspects of the demo team and the amazing displays that they put on during both the airshow season and the off season training! This can be watched on EAA - Spirit of Aviations Youtube page or on Live-stream server 1 on the Spirit of Aviation website starting at 0000Z

Wow. Thanks so much Balloonchaser! As someone that lives in Oshkosh it’s hard not seeing the city bustling with airplanes, RV’s, people, and much more. There is an eerie silence over Oshkosh.


That being said these webinars have been awesome and extremely informational if you have the time I highly suggest registering for some.

I’ve listened once before to Bob Obma before in his outstanding ATC and Your presentation, very interesting, informative, and well-spoken!


Want to experience more of AirVenture? - Watch some old YouTube Videos, flying in/out of KOSH, join community events surrounding AirVenture. The possibilities are endless. I hope to see all of you at Osh21!

@Balloonchaser Do you all make the lists yourself?


If so, are you doing a great job💙! You put so much effort into it! I can only repeat it, but it can be endured without it :)
