    Air Academy sessions for 2020 cancelled per the website. Can register for 2021. I assume that’s what he is referring to.

    No. He said, "well I guess everybody got the letter from EAA today" The Academy notice was a posting on the website. He's assuming Members got a phantom letter like he did.

    Since I asked what letter, the mail was delivered and, yup, there was an EAA letter. Foundation. Asking for $$$to improve educational opportunities.

    One line, though, said they were proceeding with plans for the show to go on....

    Last time I checked, the Milwaukee Democrat convention was moved from mid July to August 18.

    Sorry guys, I got busy and just now got back to the computer. The letter I got says; They are following state mandates and they are closing the EAA Aviation Museum, canceling activites at the Oshkosh facilities and supending the Ford Tri-Motor flights for the next 30 days. "We are still moving ahead with our plans for AirVenture, our annual family reunion, and will keep you advised." If you want I can scan the letter and post if any of you doubt that I got a letter, (Floats) lol.

    I have not received any letter. And to me it really doesn't matter because none of this is news. EAA made these pronouncements public the week of March 14, a month ago. I posted about this stuff on March 21 under another related thread. Furthermore, if you go to the EAA website you'll find a March 26 posting that they are still moving ahead with Osh.

    Move along, move along, nothin' to see here kid.

    I'm not sure I know what the big deal is.

    If you don't feel safe going to OSH, DON'T GO!!

    True - but for those who've attended for a long time and for those for whom this will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, for the over 7,000 volunteers like me who make the event happen, for the 800+ exhibitors who ARE a big chunk of what AirVenture is all about, and for all those across the planet now questioning whether or not to spend the HUGE amount -many times not refundable - that an airplane ticket and other transportation to Oshkosh, WI, USA costs, not to mention all the paid laborers, countless service and food companies and workers and the 'kinda' important' $$ infusion into the whole area for the event? It IS a big deal whether or not the event happens.

    Worth noting last year's numbers -

    Other than that, the possibility of catching a presently incurable virus, and if you're older - like a large % of EAA member and AirVenture attendees are -the slight possibility said virus WILL kill you? Life is good, says I.
