    While the proliferation of e-bikes might have caught them off guard, the other sorts of off-road vehicles have been a problem for a very long time. Scholler has been a free for all for as long as...

    What's the solution?

    As I said, there were kids riding one-wheels through vintage. Another ran up to an electric trike (with handicap sticker) and was spinning the tire riding off. There were so...

    I think the general theme for 2022 can be summed up as “Why should we make an effort? You’re going to come anyway.”

    It's not just the local crowd. There are lots of posts asking "what else" is there for my wife or kids to do. Not everyone has a family that wants to be force fed airplanes 24/7. You're left with a...

    I guess $20 million in admissions isn't enough for a third rate band from the 70's.

    At some point the EAA needs to take ownership of the event and do what's good for the members and public. Yes,...

    Seems like there's not much effort this year, either by the EAA or the participants. News has been slow to non-existent. No forum schedule or vendor list. No concert. (yeah, yeah, the covid excuse...

    They had one job to do - follow the procedure that had been published for over a month. Obviously too much to ask the entitled.

    First we have the ":mad: Out of my way, peon! " approach.

    We have to remember, AirVenture is a fundraiser, not a fly-in for members to socialize like in the old days. After all, 25% of funds raised through membership doesn't even cover the wages of the...

    Cool. Next year I'm bringing a Roman chariot powered by my emotional support Emu because of vision problems - I can't see myself walking around like a normal person. Watch where you step.

    We usually arrive Saturday before noon and that puts us 3/4 of the way to the highway. If you find a spot closer, ask yourself why it’s not taken. It’s probably a low area that’ll be ankle deep after...

    I'm going to say no, that will never happen. Maybe a small heli-bus, but not personal transportation. The reason? Lawyers.

    Allow? This is the organization that told a vendor to stop giving away free water. An increase means the EAA gets a bigger cut. No way would they put members over profits.
