Join us this year for the return of AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin!
When: July 26 – August 1, 2021
Where: Wittman Regional Airport (KOSH)
This year we’re celebrating the 25th anniversary of the RV-8 (which was last year but will be celebrated now) and the 20th anniversary of the RV-7 as well! After a year off due to the COVID pandemic, everyone is excited about the show and the opportunity to (safely) get together in Oshkosh for the annual event.
We’ll post more information here – including RV-related event schedules – when we get closer to the show dates!
There will not be a Van’s banquet dinner this year, due to the limitations on gathering sizes at the show. We look forward to doing it again in 2022, though, on the 50th anniversary of Van’s Aircraft!

RV Demo Flights @ OSH
All of our available demonstration flight slots for OSH ’21 have been filled. Demo flights are available to people with at least a student pilot certificate who are planning to build an RV kit. Sorry, we don’t provide demo flights for potential buyers of used RVs (go fly the airplane you’re looking at buying!).
