Monday was the AirVenture’s official opening day. As is
tradition, Tom Poberezny, the president of the experimental
aircraft association, took the time to welcome media to the
Positive growth was evident throughout the news of the day.
Cirrus Aircraft co-founder and vice chairman Dale Klapmeier sat
down with Aero-TV to give us an update on the long-awaited company
rebound after a year of poor economic downturn.
Continuing the atmosphere of rebound, Piper announced its
addition of the Garmin G600 glass avionics suite to its primary
trainers, its twin-engine aircraft, and the newly revamped Piper
Archer that will come to market next year.
Despite questionable weather, Monday featured several exciting
aircraft arrivals. Though the event needed no more water, the
Erickson S-64F Aircrane Helitanker, called “Elvis,”
arrived with an exciting firebombing demonstration for crowds.
Crowds also enjoyed the futuristic ICON A5, as well as the
exciting debut of the Virgin Galactic Mothership “Eve,”
at the afternoon showcase. Sir Richard Branson had these words to
say about his arrival at AirVenture 2009.
Join us again tomorrow on Aero-TV’s Daily Update from EAA
AirVenture Oshkosh for thrilling demonstration flights of both the
Virgin Galactic Mothership “Eve” and the Airbus A380,
the world’s largest passenger airliner.
