For those attending Air Venture 2016, below is a list for those that would like to list their name and info for others that may want to contact them, and also for those that are looking for information and would like to post any questions for those that have been there or are going this year. AGain, looks like another great year for Zenith and those attending.

I've never been, but I might try it if I haven't sold my airplane by the decision date (which is?).

I'm having to face the fact, at long last, that I ain't gettin' any younger. I have no idea where to stay or what arrangements to make to get around on the ground. I am "officially" "handicapped," but I can walk short distances unaided. Walking around the flight line, however, is beyond my capabilities. I can, however, ride a bicycle, but that's probably not practical or permitted. I also have a "sleep disorder." My energy level ain't what it used to be, but my brain just doesn't want to get the message--that mean I have to rest a lot and stay hydrated. I would consider a well-qualified pilot for the right seat IF I can work it out to go.

If anyone has any ideas or advice, I'll be all ears.


They have rides which take you all over the air field for free.

Going as a flight of two 701s.

We will have a SPOT page where you can track our progress.

Flight of 3, two 750s and an Avid. From Lethbridge, Alberta. Planning to arrive Saturday PM and leave Thursday or Friday. Camping under-wing at the ultralight field.

Congratulations, Joe, it's been quite a scratch build journey for you, can't wait to see your show piece in person. See you there.

Which one of your buddies is coming in the other 750? 

Yes, it has been a long journey and has been a pretty hectic last two months. Have been working hard to try to make Oshkosh this year and it looks like I will make it (not counting my chickens until they hatch, though...). Dave Van Dyke has the other 750. He has been flying for a year.

See you there,
