Schedule is On Line
People planning to attend EAA AirVenture Oshkosh are now able to
view the more than 500 aviation forums, workshops and seminars
scheduled for the event.
All of the educational sessions at EAA AirVenture,
which will be held July 29-August 4 at Wittman Regional Airport in
Oshkosh (WI), will be listed on the web site's "Forums" area. The
Forums area is available through the "Events" heading on the
AirVenture home page. Web site users will be able to sort the
sessions by date, time, aviation interest or presenter. In
addition, more information on individual sessions will be
available, including a detailed description of each forum, the
presenter's biography, photo and their other forums and workshops
during EAA AirVenture.
"The educational forums and workshops are the heart of EAA
AirVenture," said Charlie Becker, EAA's Executive Director of
Aviation Information Services, who coordinates the AirVenture
forums. "By having this information available in advance, visitors
can view the speaker's bio, study a detailed description of the
forum and make an informed decision of which forums to attend, all
before they even arrive on the grounds."
It can't get more-convenient than this:
When a visitor to the web site connects with the AirVenture
Forums page, that person can choose to view the forums schedule in
one of several options: By date/time, presenter, interest group or
keyword search. For each forum listed, there is a link to the
forum's location, presenter information and related topics.
Forum listings will also be published in the Info Guide, which
is distributed with the official EAA AirVenture program book on the
grounds. All forums in the EAA AirVenture Forums Plaza are held in
new pavilions that offer superior audio/video abilities, as well as
other amenities. These pavilions were constructed as part of a
three-year improvement project, completed in 2001, which created an
aviation education "campus" for AirVenture forums and workshops.
Other forums are held in the Ultralight area and in the FAA Safety
