“48 State Challenge” to Oshkosh: Mission Accomplished


Congratulations to Dave Tillema for successfully completing the “48 State Challenge” on his way to Oshkosh 2022 from Texas, flying a Zenith CH 750 Cruzer airplane that he built himself from a kit, powered by a Honda car engine (Viking conversion) with a DUC inflight adjustable propeller. The entire trip was flown using mogas/auto fuel. Dave Tillema left his home in Texas on Friday, July 8, and landed in Wisconsin on Monday, July 18, after having landed in each of the lower 48 states!

Dave is now spending the week in Wisconsin and will be flying in to Oshkosh on Saturday. Visit with Dave at Oshkosh, to meet with him and see his airplane at the Viking Engines booth in the North Aircraft Display area.
