And yet... 2020 is going to be the first year without an Oshkosh in our adult memories... so what to do? Well; the best bet to is to celebrate all the goodness and excitement of past AirVentures and make serious preparation to come back in 2021, with a vengeance.

ANN's Daily Aero-Linx (07.12.20)

Aero Linx: British Model Flying Association The BMFA is the National Governing Body for the sport of model flying. Its aims are to promote, protect, organise and encourage model flying within the UK. Typically there are around 780 affiliated clubs and a combined membership of over 36,000 members, all of whom have entered a partnership to ensure that model fliers have a voice and their rights are recognised by the authorities.

Aero-News: Quote of the Day (07.12.20)

"We regret having this decision to make and believe that with safety as our focus in all matters of our sport, to continue without knowing what mid-September will bring in terms of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic would be irresponsible. The “go/no go” date was moved ahead because we believe that IAC members deserve to know as early as possible so that they can make other plans with family, business, and school..." Source: IAC President, Robert Armstrong, commenting as the IAC Board of Directors met by teleconference on Friday, 10 July 2020, to discuss the 2020 U.S. National Aerobatic Championships scheduled to be held in Salina, Kansas, 20-24 September 2020. After much research, debate, and discussion with City of Salina officials and EAA leadership, the IAC Board of Directors has determined that it will be in the best interest of the safety of all who attend the U.S. Nationals that this premier event is cancelled for 2020.
