July 7, 2011 – Fantasy will come to life for aviation enthusiasts during EAA’s Ultimate Military Trainer Fantasy Flight Camp, which will be held September 9-11 at the EAA Aviation Center in Oshkosh. During EAA Fantasy Flight Camps, aviation experts lead a detailed study of specialty subjects and allow adult aviation enthusiasts the opportunity to discover more about and fly aboard unique airplanes in the EAA collection.
The Ultimate Military Trainer Camp experience includes unforgettable flights in two of EAA’s military Army Air Corps trainers – the Consolidated PT-3, nicknamed Trusty, and the North American T-6, also known as the “pilot maker.” Both aircraft are legends in primary and advanced military training.
The 1930s, one of the most unique periods of military training history, will be explored in depth during history briefings and ground school. Each flight will begin with an informative session on the aircraft and its controls, and shortly after that EAA’s own pilots and instructors will fly with attendees.
Once airborne, the pilots will demonstrate how the controls operate while attendees get ready to take the controls. Participants will then be able to experience flying these historic aircraft. Dubbed “the ultimate interactive experience,” this fantasy flight camp is sure to deliver unforgettable memories and logbook entries.
“We are excited to offer this once-in-a-lifetime experience again to any aviation enthusiasts,” said Bob Campbell, EAA manager of museum operations. “The weekend is jam-packed full of history, ground school instruction, and of course flying in both the T-6 and the PT-3.”
Along with the wonderful ground schools and flying, the participants will stay in EAA’s beautiful Air Academy Lodge.
All fees include room and board, ground schools, instructional materials, and flight experiences. For more information and to register, click here.
