Summertime is filled with events happening all over the state of Wisconsin. Last weekend, we saw of one of the largest old car shows take place only 15 miles from the Lions Pride Office. Next week, we will be changing modes of transportation and getting a little from home with EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2015.
AirVenture is the world’s largest gatherings from recreational pilots and aviation enthusiasts. The event begins on the last Monday of July in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
Over 500,000 people from more than 60 countries come to celebrate their love for aviation. The week is filled with airshows, workshops, forums, aeronautics, concerts and so much more. AirVenture 2015 also includes special theme days such as Honoring Apollo 13, Salute to Veterans and World War II Tribute.
As you can imagine, the whole event is unique, but how many participants get to Oshkosh is even more extraordinary. Of course, they fly, but they take their own aircraft. One week out of the year, the Wittman Regional Airport becomes the busiest airport in the world with more than 10,000 planes flying in.
Participants come back year after year to continue learning about their passion and connecting with new and old friends alike. EAA AirVenture shows us that no matter how much experience you have, if you’re passionate about an industry or cause, you can never stop learning. Is it just us or does this sound similar to another organization? We think the Wisconsin Lions and Lionesses have a lot in common with Lions Pride, we all want to secure the legacy of service that began with Lions Camp almost 60 years ago.
To all of those traveling near and far, we wish you safe travels to EAA AirVenture!
