Sporty’s, in partnership with EAA, has created the official mobile app for the 2013 edition of “the world’s largest aviation celebration,” which is now available for both Apple and Android devices. The EAA AirVenture Oshkosh app for iPhone/iPad may be downloaded free here, and Android users can get it here.
All the information a show-goer needs to travel to and navigate around the show is available on this app. If you’re driving to the event, you can access directions and detailed parking information. You can also avoid long admission lines by buying advanced tickets through the app. The complete Oshkosh NOTAM is included for arrival and departure procedures as well as detailed ATC information and even special FBO offers. It’s perfect for in-flight reference and does not require an internet connection.
Another helpful feature will help you make your trip to Oshkosh even more efficient. You can pull out the exhibitors, seminars, workshops and other activities you don’t want to miss and compile the list into a “My AirVenture” section. Once at the show, the AirVenture Oshkosh app has plenty of maps: the convention grounds, the campgrounds, exhibit halls, aircraft displays and more.
The app also features an interactive exhibitors list with detailed hangar and exhibit area maps. When you click on an exhibitor’s company name, you will instantly see a map pinpointing the exhibitor’s location on the show grounds.
Your smartphone will be your best companion as you walk the grounds of Oshkosh. The daily schedule will be at your fingertips including forums, workshops, the daily air show, evening programs and daily highlights. You can even enjoy EAA radio and get the latest show updates via the app.
EAA AirVenture runs from July 29 through August 4, and is located at the Oshkosh Airport in Wisconsin.
