New Digs!


Pilots headed to camp with their homebuilts at AirVenture this year will find something new–a recently finished (they were putting metal on it yesterday) Pavilion dominates the Homebuilt Camping area offering shade, barbecues, tables, charging stations–and morning coffee! The new addition to the AirVenture grounds will become a central meeting point for campers and folks who need a place to take a break from the sun and frenetic activity of the show.

It’s not a bad place for a journalist to sit with an iPad and scratch out stories either.
