Default VAF’er Forums (and appearances) at Airventure 2022

Here’s a start at the annual thread to let everyone here know where and when they can hear the many VAF’ers who conduct forums/events at Airventure! There are many ways to spend your time in Oshkosh - these will at least (maybe) give you a chance to sit in a folding chair for 45 minutes…..

So here is where you can find Paul:

Monday - 1300 CDT - EAA Wearhouse - Book Signing
Monday - 1430 CDT - Homebuilders Hangar - Forum “Flight Test 101”
Monday - 1900 CDT - Theater in the Woods - Van’s 50th Celebration (Master of Ceremonies)

Tuesday - 1000 CDT - Forum Stage 6 - Forum “Lessons from Mission Control”

Wednesday - 0900 CDT - EAA Wearhouse - Book Signing
Wednesday - 1230 CDT - Pilot Proficiency Center - Flight Testing Safety Seminar “Inflight Emergencies”

Thursday - 1430 - Forum 7 - Forum “Shuttle, Houston”

Let's see who else is speaking; where, what about, and when!

I'll be presenting in the Pilot Proficiency Center, in breakout sessions, three times each on Monday and Friday afternoons. The topic is Base to Final: More Than Stall/Spin. Those presentations are part of the session Killer Procedures: Managing Risk in a Risky Environment. Attendance for the session includes training in Redbird simulators, but registration is required at

Wednesday morning at 10, I'll be giving the same presentation in the NAFI tent, near Theater in the Woods, behind Garmin.

There's lots of fascinating information that's not widely known...

And for those not yet building, don't forget the Sheet Metal 101 workshops, 8:30 and 1:00 every day. Located in Building 12 in the green roofed Forums and Workshops Plaza.

For all you experienced buckers and riveters, we can always use a little help teaching new folks the nuances of sheet metal aircraft assembly. Volunteers needed...with a free lunch.

Default Rumor

Rumor has it the Vans tent will be standing room only in front of the RV 15. Get there early and come back often.

Default DIY RV8 HUD or 2nd Display

Epic Optix and myself will discuss the install and flight operations of my RV8 HUD. Epic Optix will brief why an Infinity Focused HUD is important and new pricing for their HUD & integration computer. I will discuss my RV8 EFIS integration, and flight operations using our DIY software + Raspberry PI computer that can integrate with G3x, Dynon Legacy, Dynon Skyview, MGL, uAvionix (echoUAT) & STRATUX ADSB (via WIFI). System can output to a HDMI/Analog Video HUD or 2nd HDMI Cockpit Display or both.

I am presenting “The man who flew the Memphis Belle” the life story of Robert Morgan the pilot of the Memphis Belle in Europe and the B29 Dauntless Dottie in the Pacific theatre during WWII. Presentation is Tuesday morning at 8:30 to 9:45 in the Hilton Theatre at the museum. Not really related to Vans except that I fly a 6A. PS Museum is air conditioned, dry, and no air show noise so it will be a great venue for speakers.

Y'all need to hear & see John Speak, he has a dry Indiana sense of humor and always makes his presentations interesting. BTW be sure to congratulate him on his new responsibility as HBC co-chair. He has worked as a volunteer at Air Venture for over 6 years and always keeps things interesting...

Thanks John, see you in a couple of weeks...
