EAA AirVenture Museum’s Pioneer Airport in Oshkosh will be transformed into a fun fly zone on Saturday, June 15, as up to two dozen Ultralights and light planes descend onto the grass airstrip to participate in EAA’s Ultralight Day 2019. As part of the event, invited members of EAA Ultralight Chapter 1 (Southern Wisconsin) and Chapter 75 (North Central Wisconsin) will use special procedures to fly their ultralights to Pioneer Airport in two mass arrivals between 9-10 a.m., weather permitting. Beginning at 1 p.m., pilots will conduct several pilot proficiency events, including accuracy landings, bean bag drops, and “torpedo run contests.” Any competitor who scores in the top three of each event will receive a special plaque. Lunch will be available for purchase from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Vintage aircraft rides (not ultralights) will also be available for purchase from 10:30 a.m. to noon, as well as Young Eagles flights for kids ages 8-17. Admission to the activities is included with regular museum admission for non-EAA members, and is free for EAA members.
