The Experimental Aircraft Association’s Fly-In Convention, now known as EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, has been in existence nearly as long as the association itself. The first gathering was in September 1953 as a small part of the Milwaukee (Wis.) Air Pageant. That original EAA fly-in at Wright-Curtiss (now Timmerman) Field was attended by a handful of airplanes, mostly homebuilt and modified aircraft. Fewer than 100 people registered as visitors. The week-long event now features over 750,000 visitors.

As the first privately-financed and operated commercial airport in the United States, Branson Airport has the potential to redefine air travel in this country. Branson Airport, LLC is introducing an innovative business model that focuses on creating a better travel experience.
