The main aviation event of the year is about to descend upon Oshkosh, Wisconsin in the United States this weekend. For an entire week, the control tower at Wittman Regional Airport becomes the busiest in the world. This year, as EAA celebrates 50 years of AirVenture, Infinite Flight is getting in on the action. We’ll be exhibiting along with almost a thousand other commercial exhibitors in a sold-out show. Last year, over 600,000 people passed through the gates to attend this event.
[In 2018] more than 10,000 aircraft arrived at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh and other airports in east-central Wisconsin. At Wittman alone, there were 19,588 aircraft operations in the 11-day period from July 20-30, which is an average of approximately 134 takeoffs/landings per hour.

Infinite Flight Oshkosh Action
XCubs To Oshkosh
We’re not satisfied just standing by at our booth! We’ll be hosting a new event called XCubs To Oshkosh, where anyone with Infinite Flight on their device can make the journey to Oshkosh from wherever they are. We have partnered with EAA to promote this event and we can’t wait to share the spirit of aviation with all of you!
We will share more on this event later this week, but for now, our blog post contains all of the information you need to start preparing for your journey to Oshkosh.
Presentation Forum with Flight Chops
Our very own Laura Laban is teaming up with famous YouTube aviator and filmmaker, Steve Thorne to give a presentation next Wednesday at 10:00CST. At the ForeFlight Forum Stage 8, Laura and Steve will discuss the huge advantages of practicing using mobile sims before you get in the cockpit. If you’re at Oshkosh, you don’t want to miss this great chat! We are still working out the details of a possible giveaway for those attending so check back here for that!
