Lycoming Engines Announces AirVenture Activities


New Lycoming engines awaiting testing

Attendees at AirVenture can participate in a variety of activities when they visit Lycoming throughout the week. Here are the times and locations for various events.

Lycoming Factory Tour

Since not all AirVenture attendees can visit Lycoming’s factory in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, the Lycoming booth will feature an interactive, self-guided tour of the Lycoming factory. The tour offers aviation enthusiasts the opportunity to learn about the manufacturing processes and innovation that takes place at the factory to produce genuine Lycoming aircraft engines and parts.

  • Location: Lycoming Booth (277–282)

Expanded Forums Schedule

Lycoming’s team of highly qualified product support representatives will share information and tips, and will be available to answer questions regarding Lycoming’s products and services.

Lycoming’s Littlest Engine Helps Fight Fires: Join Mike Kraft, senior vice president and general manager of Lycoming Engines, and Dennis Racine from the Textron Systems Unmanned Systems unit (TSUS) for an overview of Lycoming’s EL-005 engine and how the TSUS Aerosonde was used to assist the U.S. Department of the Interior with fighting fires.
