I'd like to do the Airventure Cup Race as well. Any others interested in that? It's on Sunday morning KMVN-KAUW (fuel stop TBD). Those of us that do could do a mass arrival to OSH from AUW.

A special parking area would be great. Thinking about coming mid week this year instead of the first Sunday. Question for future organizers. Would the area be accessible after the week begins?

Sounds like we have pretty good interest - I will send out some more info as soon as we have it. Anyone interested, feel free to keep commenting here and we can form a list.

Anyone willing to help coordinate, please let me know!

I'll be there with my RV4, N343AS. It's still flying great after 2040 flight hours.

Paul Rosales arranged a special parking area for the RV-6 30th a few years ago. I got a spot there and it was great. Do it if you get a chance.

Default UPDATE and RV-4 Anniversary Parking sign-up form from EAA

Quick update on the RV-4 40th Anniversary at OSH:

Please follow this link to pre-register with EAA if you're wanting to fly your RV-4 in and park in the special RV-4 parking area.

https://www.eaa.org/airventure/featu...versaries/RV-4


I've just spoken with Charlie Becker at EAA, and he's advised that while this special RV-4 parking are is for parking only, they will also set up a separate tent camping area for those who wish to camp on the grounds while parking the airplane in the RV-4 Anniversary parking. The tent camping are will be located around the home-built camping pavilion I am told, so you can be right there with all your RV friends!

We're working on some additional details here at Van's, too. And it looks like we may be able to put on a special forum presentation, with a Very Special Speaker who'd cover the history and design of the RV-4 from a first-person, in-the-know perspective and its significant role in getting the kit aircraft business off the ground.

More details when we have them for ya! Meanwhile, please sign up using the above link, so EAA can start planning ahead!

Thx

greg

Excellent!! I just registered. My RV-4 has been there before I bought it, but this will be my first trip to AirVenture. Also, I'm a race nut, so I'll be competing in the AirVenture Cup as well. I can't wait!!

Any more news on the parking and camping? I've got everything purchased for my stay except the camping. Can't wait!
