AeroSports Update: Poberezny Estate To Be Preserved

Aircraft Spruce Acquires Poberezny Estate In Oshkosh, WI

Anyone who is interested in recreational aviation is well aware of the impact Paul Poberezny and his family have made on furthering the cause of aircraft home-building and aviation as a hobby. What you may not have known is that the Poberezny home is located only a short distance from the grounds were EAA AirVenture Oshkosh takes place annually.

Now, the Aircraft Spruce & Specialty Co. has released the information that their company has purchased the former home of Paul and Audrey Poberezny and will make the home available to EAA for tours and special events.

The original stone farmhouse is over 100 years old and was Paul and Audrey's home from 1991 until his death in 2013. Located near Wittman Field, the 9 acre estate reflects the standards and culture the Poberezny family utilized in building the world's leading sport aviation organization, EAA, and the world's premier aviation event, AirVenture.

This home hosted many of aviation’s leaders and icons, and countless aviation artifacts and photos representing the relationships and events that shaped Paul's remarkable life are on display throughout the home, providing insight into the lifetime passion and vision of one of aviation's greatest leaders. This is where Paul built airplanes, read about aviation history, and wrote countless letters and articles. Paul Poberezny is quoted as saying, "There isn't a day that goes by that I don't say the word airplane".

It is appropriate that Aircraft Spruce has taken this action as the Irwin family have maintained a close relationship with the Poberezny family and EAA for over 50 years. Aircraft Spruce and EAA have grown up together - hand-in-hand.

In a press release from EAA, they say that EAA appreciates the commitment of Aircraft Spruce and the Irwin family to preserving this home and the unmatched history associated with it. More details on the public availability of the facilities will be announced as they are finalized.
