Preview: EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2017

It’s that time of year again. That time of year when plane and pilot come together, travel hundreds or thousands of miles, arriving at the world’s greatest aviation celebration. This annual pilgrimage, culminating in Oshkosh, Wisconsin July 24-30, attracts aircraft owners, aircraft homebuilders, pilots and aircraft enthusiasts creating the busiest airport in the world during the course of the week.

Dual G5 electronic flight instrument configuration for certificated aircraft.

A stellar lineup for the AirVenture airshow is already planned, including the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, a display of military bomber aircraft both past and present, plus scores of rare airplanes. We have our own exciting lineup ready for the show, including all of our exciting new products: GFC 600/GFC 500 autopilots for general aviation aircraft, GDL 82 cost-effective ADS-B Out solution, GDL 52 series portable ADS-B and SiriusXM receivers and the D2 Charlie aviator watch. We’ll also be highlighting our most popular avionics, plus hosting seminars and even new educational opportunities tailored specifically for experimental homebuilders and pilots – the G3X Touch Academy. For pilots interested in hands-on avionics training, we’ve got you covered too. Our pilot trainers will be on-site providing GTN 650/750 Touchscreen Series courses. Space is limited, so sign up today! Click here for more information.

We’ll also be presenting free seminars daily near our exhibit just west of Boeing Plaza, covering everything from flying with Garmin Pilot and our portable devices, to upgrading with our advanced G600/G500 flight displays and GTN series navigators. Daily seminars include:
