Join us for the Velocity DINNER on Wednesday at AirVenture Oshkosh.
Our annual gathering at Oshkosh has become so big and popular that we're moving to a catered location. There are a lot of good reasons that this works better:
- It is catered food, so we don't impose as much on our volunteers Oshkosh vacation
- It is closer to the AirVenture show, at the SOS Brothers "beer balloon." Easy walk; near parking and bus stops.
- We'll have a private tent, with tables and chairs
- It will still be DINNER on Wednesday
There are some required changes to our normal format: The price has increased to $30 per person. Early registrations cost just $20 if paid by July 15th
The gathering starts at 5:00 pm and includes DINNER. We can use the tent through 9pm.

ANR Headsets and ADSB static . . . I received the headsets back from the manufacturer today. The boxes had paperwork on what was done. . . . I couldn't see how these things could have been causing the static. I took them out to the plane and tested them. There was no change. The static was still there and as loud as before.. . .
Towbar Pin . . . Some builders have installed a pin on their nose gear that allows for a towbar to connect to the fork so that the owner or an FBO can connect a tug (or car) to move the airplane. Pilots can use their own car to pull the airplane over to the fueling pit to refuel without having to start up the airplane. . . .
First Flight . . .First flight of N735D at FYJ. Calm winds, cool temperatures, and unlimited visibility. A few squawks to fix and . . . .
