MASS GATHERING OF PIPER CUBS AT EAA AIRVENTURE 2012

MASS GATHERING OF PIPER CUBS WILL TURN EAA AIRVENTURE 2012 INTO ‘FIELD OF YELLOW’
Piper Cub owners invited to register online for aircraft’s 75th anniversary celebration
EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wis. — (Jan. 19, 2012) — Hundreds of Piper Cubs are expected to turn the flightline at EAA AirVenture 2012 into a “field of yellow” as a part of the week-long celebration of the iconic aircraft’s 75th anniversary. The 60th annual “World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration” scheduled for July 23-29 at Wittman Regional Airport.
All Piper Cub owners are invited to fly in and be an integral part of the celebration at EAA AirVenture, which will feature a special aircraft parking section located near the Vintage area along the flightline. Cub owners are encouraged to register at www.cubs2oshkosh.com, an interactive community of Cub owners that will feature the latest information on Cub-related festivities leading up to and during AirVenture.
Among the anticipated activities are staging points throughout North America where Cub owners can gather en route. Those include a mass gathering at Wisconsin’s Hartford Municipal Airport (HXF), located 60 miles to the south, before heading up to Oshkosh for a group arrival.
“When talking about iconic aircraft that pioneered the GA movement, you need to look no further than the distinctive Piper Cub,” said Rod Hightower, EAA President/CEO. “Like many other aircraft types, Cub owners are a community-oriented group that is synonymous with EAA’s culture. If you own or fly a Piper Cub, you need to be at EAA AirVenture and be a key part in honoring 75 years all week long.”
Throughout the week, special features, attractions, and programs will honor the legacy of this pioneering light aircraft, with those events to be announced in the upcoming months. Already confirmed are two air show acts – Greg Koontz and the Alabama Boys, a flying farmer comedy routine featuring a Piper J-3 Cub landing on top of a truck, as well as the return of Kyle Franklin, who will perform his PA-18 Super Cub comedy routine.
Additionally, a Piper J-3 Cub will be awarded to a lucky winner as the grand prize in the 2012 EAA “Win The Cub” Aircraft Sweepstakes. The EAA Sweepstakes, one of the longest running airplane giveaways in the world, annually supports EAA’s aviation education programs. In a change from past years, EAA Sweepstakes entry forms will be available through EAA AirVenture 2012. All prizes will be awarded to winners in random drawings at the EAA AirVenture Museum in Oshkosh at 5 p.m. on Sept. 10, 2012. Entry forms and complete rules are available at www.winthecub.com.
Advance purchase admission tickets and camping for AirVenture 2012 are now available at www.airventure.org/tickets.
