The Aviation Fuel Club is organizing a special event called “Unleaded to Oshkosh” — U2OSH — at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2012. The purpose of the event is to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the FAA’s approval of the first autogas STC, an effort led in part by EAA founder Paul Poberezny. All pilots flying aircraft to Oshkosh that are capable of operating on mogas will be given special recognition. Awards will be given for the longest distance traveled, oldest/newest aircraft and smallest/largest aircraft flown using lead-free auto gas.

Headquarters for the event will be the exhibit of U-Fuel (#339, just SW of Phillips66 Plaza) the sponsor for U2OSH. Co-sponsors are Petersen Aviation, FlyUnleaded, American Legend Aircraft ,and Air Plains.

The high point of U2OSH will be a forum at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, July 26, during AirVenture. Speakers who have already confirmed their participation include EAA founder Paul Poberezny, LSA expert and Light Aircraft Manufacturers Association President Dan Johnson (who also writes the Sport Pilot Blog [Splog] for General Aviation News), autogas STC expert Todd Petersen, ADI producer Mike Kelley of Air Plains, aviation fuel expert and General Aviation News columnist Ben Visser, and USUA leader and PSF publisher Roy Beisswenger.

Further information on U2OSH may be found at and click on Information Flyer link. The organizers request interested parties to post the flyer at their favorite airports, flying clubs, EAA chapters, etc. Please use the email link on the web site if you want to get a free U2OSH static cling decal to display on your airplane as you fly into AirVenture and use the links on the web site to find airports with mogas along your route. There is also an email link to send me information about the mogas service on airports that you land at which will keep the web site up to date for other pilots.
