    If you want to work Vintage Flight Line, come to our building (across from the Hangar Cafe) at 9AM or 1PM (we run training both times every day from now until the show closes). Training runs about...

    I can only speak for the Vintage Flight Line, but as I stated, we've never turned anybody away or failed to find them something to do. Our offices are across Wittman Road (the paved track down the...

    I can answer that. I've been volunteering in Vintage for the past 22 years. My wife pretty much runs the operations buidling there.

    It's very simple to volunteer there. No need to register...

    NOt going to happen in the US no matter how many times you post it in these forums in one day.

    How many threads are you going to post your inane question to? This is not how discussions work.

    Answered in the other thread you brought this up in. Not going to happen in the US, and I think it's a good thing.

    Been discussed. Likely not gong to happen. Obtaining the instrument rating is not hard. Maintaining proficiency in it is the hard part. Can't see watering it down.

    I have a friend who bought a Luscombe at Airventure. Small (like 8 1/2 x 11") signs advertising the plane is for sale is tolerated in Vintage. Larger signs and FOR SALE prop streamers are...

    Yes, I suspect the EAA doesn't know. My wife used to wrangle military assets for the Smithsonian fly-in. You're lucky you get them to commit to a day. Calling the command is more likely to get...

    While they sell traps, I don't think they are particularly effective. You can discourage them if you treat the area with cypermethrin at the right times of years. Otherwise, your stuck with just...

    Don't think that's going to happen. Best bet is to get either a battery CPAP or battery-inverter setup.

    The camp stores (now called the Red One stores) have a small amount of food. I'd definitely bring in stuff for the first night or so as it's a pain going off field right from the git go.

    And bug repellent, especially if you're going out to watch the night airshow. The mosquito is the state bird of Wisconsin.

    You'll find outlets on the shower buildings and you'll find a plethora of things plugged in there from scooters to cellphones. A plug strip or cube tab will definitely help.

    This is as opposed to Audrey's Park which access is restricted to certain recognized volunteers.

    I think you're referring to Relleutmdats which is at Waupun and Knapp Street which is closer to the Ultralight red barn. Amusingly the name is the name of the owner spelled backwards. He's in the...

    The main Scholler gate off the service road is ALWAYS open. The dicey ones are the ones leading to the show and Knapp St. and the one down south by the dump station.

    The North 40 Handicapped space is closer to the gate and I think has an additional couple of handicapped accessible port-o-lets. I suspect that with crutches or a knee walker she isn't really going...

    Actually one of the recent years had the camera live on the pylon while it was still lying on the ground. Like I said, it's not very interesting that way.

    And of course, they're not very interesting until whoever raises the pylons gets them up as well.

    Yep, all showplane camping used to be down south of the comm building (show center). About six years or so ago they created a dedicated homebuilt camping area. The EAA is scraping to get enough...

    Cutting down LVL is going to be problematic if you're talking about perpendicular to the plies. You're not going to be able to make any strength guarantees.

    That's a much better map than the one in the book. I still could do without the pseudoperspective view. We're pilots, we know how to read a map.
