Headed to Airventure? See the GAMA/Build a Plane Glasairs

Many of you are on your way to AirVenture 2013, and many more of you are planning to head to Oshkosh in just a few days.

I hope there’s time in your schedule to stop by the General Aviation Manufacturers Association/Build a Plane tent and see for yourself the Glasair Sportsmans (Sportsmen?) that were built by eight teenagers last month. (I blogged the build and you’ll see a complete feature article in the October 2012 issue of AOPA Pilot magazine.)

The teens themselves will be at AirVenture—look for a group of kids in matching T-shirts.

The GAMA/BAP exhibit is 299,  which, according to the map in the Sporty’s app, is right next to Aircraft Spruce & Specialty Hangar A.

See you at AirVenture!

    Place little ones at each place setting on the tables and adorn them with
    ribbons or fortunes. They then have to keep the music going seamlessly all night
    at a high enough quality that people stay happy all night and on top of this they
    need to face requests from drunken punters. By breaking the norms and thinking out of the
    box, you can have an interesting and memorable wedding cake.
