Attendance at EAA AirVenture Increases 12 Percent

August 6th, 2009

Officials with the Experimental Aircraft Association recently reported that attendance at their 2009 air show and convention increased 12 percent as compared to 2008. The unexpectedly high attendance comes on the heels of similar reports from air shows throughout North America. With attendance in excess of 575,000 and more than 10,000 visiting aircraft, anecdotal reports from the AirVenture grounds confirmed the statistical reports from EAA, with many longtime visitors commenting that the ramp in Oshkosh seemed unusually crowded.
