EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wis. - (April 22, 2008) — EAA AirVenture Oshkosh is supplying one of most-requested items for campers at its event with an expansion of wireless Internet access this summer. EAA AirVenture, “The World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration,” will be held July 28-August 3 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh.
Wi-Fi access will be available in many areas of the North 40 aircraft camping area, the drive-in Camp Scholler campground, and in the vintage aircraft and ultralight camping areas. This access is provided free of charge to EAA members and their guests in those campgrounds. Signal strength may vary because of computer type and setup, weather conditions and other factors.
In addition, EAA members can log on to their e-mail through computers provided at Internet Cafes located in EAA Member Village and in Camp Scholler. A limited number of Ethernet connections are available for members at those locations as well.
“We’re expanding wireless access because we know that many members want to stay connected during their trips to EAA AirVenture,” said Tom Poberezny, EAA president and AirVenture chairman. “We’re happy to respond to the requests from our members and supply this resource without charge in our camping areas. And we remind them that complete coverage of each day’s events throughout the grounds will be available at the www.airventure.org website.”
