AirVenture Oshkosh 2011 Day 4

It’s day four here at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2011, and today we bring you to the ultralight aircraft area!

In the ultralight aircraft area, we found Dale Kramer and his electric-powered Lazair, an amphibious ultralight originally powered with piston engines.

Back in Conoco Phillips Plaza (formerly Aeroshell Square), Damon Favor of The Pursuit of Wings podcast talked Andrew King, one of the pilots of the replica Curtis Pusher. The Curtis Pusher is significant because it was the first airplane to ever land and take off from a ship, opening the door to naval aviation as we know it today.

Finally, we talked with Dan Kiser and Steve Wathen of the Youth Aviation Adventure, an non-profit organization that introduces kids to aviation in half-day camps all over the country.
