AIRVENTURE TODAY STAFF
SOME KIDS SOLO on their 16th birthday, but
Ryan Loehrke can beat that. On Monday, he took an airplane ride with one of aerobatics’ best. EAA Young Eagles co-chairmen Sean D. Tucker and Jimmy Graham gave Young Eagles flights respectively to Ryan, of McLean, Virginia, and Madeline Anderson, 12, of Oshkosh. Sean and Ryan flew in Sean’s PA-34 Seneca, while Jimmy and Madeline flew in Sean’s Extra. Sean and Jimmy first did a photo shoot over the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh grounds, and then the two split up and allowed the Young Eagles to take the controls. PHOTO BY CONNOR MADISON

“It’s pretty exciting to be flying with Sean Tucker,” said Ryan. “I’ve watched him do his aerobatic shows for years, and it’s cool to meet him.” Ryan said he got his interest in aviation from his dad who built an ultralight about 20 years ago. They also own a Cub. His favorite part of the flight, other than going with Sean, was seeing AirVenture from above. “I hadn’t had a sky view of Oshkosh before, and that was exciting,” he said. Ryan did take the controls and “messed around a little bit” before they headed back to Wittman Regional Airport to land.

Will it be a birthday he remembers? “Definitely,” he said. “It’s been a good one.”
“JIMMY DID A LITTLE SKYDANCING WITH THAT GIRL … AND LOOK AT HOW MADELINE IS SMILING AND LAUGHING. IT’S ALL ABOUT PAYING IT BACK AND PUSHING IT FORWARD.” SEAN D. TUCKER
While it wasn’t Madeline’s birthday, it was a day she will never forget. “Look at her. Her smile, her in the plane, her giggling and having a good time,” Jimmy said once they landed. “There is no better feeling for me than this. She told me this is her 11th AirVenture, and I said this was just my second. So when I get to 11, I told her we’ll have to do this again.” Before the flight, Madeline said if Jimmy asked if she wanted to take over the controls and actually fly, she would. And did she fly! “She did better loops than I did,” Jimmy said, laughing. “It was amazing,” Madeline said, adding that the big loop was her favorite maneuver. So how was her stomach? “Fine, actually,” she said. And yes, she said she wants to be a pilot. “I remember what it is like to be that young, and I wish I could have gotten in a plane and flown like this,” Jimmy said. “Moments like this are priceless.” Sean said it is a blast flying with Jimmy as co-chairmen of Young Eagles. “He is so humble and believes in our mission and the youth of this nation. Flying Young Eagles with Jimmy over the field with the show going … is great energy. It’s fun.” It’s not only fun. It’s also rewarding, Sean said. “Jimmy did a little skydancing with that girl … and look at how Madeline is smiling and laughing,” Sean said. “It’s all about paying it back and pushing it forward. It was a good day.”

3,300 MILES. 9 DAYS. 14 YEARS OLD. Riley Speidel flew from California to Maine in a glider BY KAYLA FLOYD
AIRVENTURE TODAY STAFF
IT’S A BIRD, it’s a plane, and well … it’s a glider. And the
pilot? Well, that is 14-year-old Riley Speidel. This year at AirVenture we are happy to welcome Riley Speidel, who is known for her recent solo glider flight across the United States. Let’s also remember that FAA rules require a glider pilot only needs to be 14 to fly a glider solo, which made this feat possible, and for Riley, only a week after she turned 14. “My first AirVenture was when I was 8 weeks old,” said Riley. “I have been coming here ever since. I love the air shows and being able to talk to other aviators who helped us plan my own flight. I’m happy to be in Oshkosh again!” Riley’s father, Jake Speidel, who accompanied her by flying behind her on the flight, added, “Our whole family has a passion for aviation. My mother met my father because he was her flight instructor.” Jake was instrumental in Riley preparing for her trip. “We planned for about two years for the trip. We also practiced flying in windy conditions to be ready for anything. I think it is very important right now to inspire the youth in aviation.”
Riley departed at 1:30 p.m. on June 7, 2019, and embarked on her 3,300-mile journey. She started her flight at Marina, California, and ended in Sanford, Maine. Along the way, Riley stopped at multiple aviation youth groups to talk about her flight and to inspire other people to chase their dreams. Seeing the push that EAA has done for young aviators inspired Riley when she realized she wanted to help. “We were able to see the issue of youth not being as involved, and I knew I wanted to do something,” she said.
“I LOVE THE AIR SHOWS AND BEING ABLE TO TALK TO OTHER AVIATORS WHO HELPED US PLAN MY OWN FLIGHT. I’M HAPPY TO BE IN OSHKOSH AGAIN!” RILEY SPEIDEL
“We knew we wanted to do a fun flight back to our hometown in Maine, but we wanted to also have a way to get other kids interested and inspired,” Jake said. “A lot of people don’t even know that you can solo a glider at 14. I loved being able to talk to kids and show them what they are able to do now before they are old enough to get their pilot certification.”
Riley also said that she was getting some feedback on social media, including people with questions. “A lot of people were commenting, asking how I was able to do that, or if I was even in a different country that allows it. I was able to tell people, ‘Nope! It’s because it’s a glider that I can do this.’” Jake flew behind Riley during her flight and said he was unconcerned about her because of her poise throughout the journey. “I wasn’t ever worried about her; she was always really cool and calm,” Jake said. “We did have to make some adjustments due to wind and such, but Riley made all of the decisions. We also had prepped so long for it that it felt like a piece of cake, which was the point. It’s been amazing to spend so much time together. There were 100 hours of training we completed, and now we get to share this passion. I love that I am able to spend this time with my daughter.” The flight path also had some hidden meaning for Riley. She actually grew up in Sanford, Maine, and it was double the excitement for Riley not only to finish her trip, but also get a chance to see her elementary friends and family when she landed. Aviation runs in the Speidel family blood and the support for Riley’s flight was unwavering. After flying in her glider on Thursday she is ready for a week of AirVenture fun. Riley will be at the Soaring Society of America booth and the Pipistrel USA sites over EAA AirVenture. Drop by and say hello to Riley and Jake, and get inspired by their love for aviation!

A Homebuilder’s Dream Flight: From Germany to Oshkosh Meet Hermann Schiele
PHOTO BY HAL BRYAN
BY KAYLA FLOYD
AIRVENTURE TODAY STAFF
OVER IN HOMEBUILT CAMPING, a gray RV-8
might have caught some attention. Whether it was the German registration, the German flag on the tail, or the combination of those with the P-51 Mustang markings and invasion stripes on the sides that caused you to do a double-take, it was Hermann Schiele’s airplane that you have stopped to notice. Hermann’s path to Oshkosh was not a typical one. Hermann started his journey years ago when the idea to complete his dream of flying his own homebuilt airplane to Oshkosh started to take flight. “For every pilot, I believe it is a dream to fly to Oshkosh,” he said. “For Europeans it is too far away. There is an ocean in between. It is not just the time or distance; it is the fact that there is an ocean separating them. You need an airplane that is capable to fly over the ocean; you need the range. For that reason, for a lot of European pilots, flying to Oshkosh stays as just a dream. There is a huge risk in flying over just water, but the last three years I read about more and more pilots doing it, so I made up my mind and I said, ‘I have to go to Oshkosh with my own plane.’ Being here is a highlight for me.” Hermann himself is a pilot for Lufthansa Airlines, flying Boeing 747s all over the world, but when the idea to build and fly to Oshkosh began, he started spending the time at work planning exactly how he would build his own plane when he would land back home in Germany. “Initially when I decided to build an airplane I got an RV-7. I had a young son at the time, and I thought it would be better for him to be beside me rather than behind me when he wanted to learn to fly. I always wanted an RV-8, so when
the RV-7 was completed, I decided that I was going to build an RV-8 for just me. This is the plane that I knew would go with me to Oshkosh,” Hermann said. “It took one year and four months to build. I bought a quick-build kit and it was still faster than I expected,” he said. “I built it when I was on my way home from working for Lufthansa. I would plan what I would do my next time home when I was flying the 747s.” Hermann knew he would have to carefully plot his journey to Oshkosh. “I delayed planning. I should have planned the route sooner, but it was just in February that I started talking to other pilots and choosing a path,” he said. “I took off on the 14th of June, going from Europe over to Canada and down to the United States. When I got to America, I decided to fly and see the sights and different cities before coming to Oshkosh.”
“MANY PEOPLE SEE THE REGISTRATION ON MY PLANE AND WANT TO KNOW WHERE I AM FROM AND HOW I GOT HERE, AND IT IS GREAT TO BE ABLE TO SHARE WITH OTHERS MY TRIP.” HERMANN SCHIELE
The planning wasn’t that easy for Hermann; he knew the risks of flying over the water and had to take certain precautions. “The largest stretch over water was from Scotland to Iceland; it was 660 miles,” he said. “I wore a survival suit, with bags next to me with important items such as an emergency transmitter, a cold-water head cover, two life rafts, and a helmet to keep my head from banging against the frame. I also put foam in the wings so that the airplane would be buoyant and not sink.” Other than the addition of a small 10-gallon auxiliary
tank in the aft fuselage, Hermann didn’t modify the airplane or carry additional fuel beyond its normal capacity. The route was from southern Germany to Greenland, where he faced a closed airport for a day. He flew over ice caps and other hazardous ground before making his next stop in northern Canada. After a stop for customs and fuel, he made his way to the United States for his near-circumnavigation.
HERMANN / PAGE 8
HERMANN / PAGE 6 Hermann had mutual friends almost everywhere he went and was amazed that the aviation community in the United States is so welcoming and friendly compared to the aviation community he was used to in Europe. “Everywhere I went I found someone willing to let me park my airplane and give me a place to sleep,” he said. “I knew people were following my flight, too. When I landed in Sedona, Arizona, I will never forget when a man came up to me and introduced himself, and when I responded, ‘Hi, I’m Hermann,’ he answered with, ‘Oh, I know.’ The support was great.” Hermann was also given a strange experience for a German citizen when he met with a group of men all heading this way and decided to fly with them for a while. He then was given the opportunity to fly over a parade on July 4th, celebrating America’s independence with these other men who were scheduled to do it. Hermann is thrilled to be in Oshkosh this year and is proud to have made the flight from Germany. His first Oshkosh experience was 20 years ago and he’s continued to come every few years. This year Hermann is excited to be able to share his experience with other aviators and said, “Many people see the registration on my plane and want to know where I am from and how I got here, and it is great to be able to share with others my trip.”

We’ve always been eager to roll up our sleeves. In our early days, we also rolled up our trousers. TQ’s first office was a barn in the Bavarian countryside. At that time, it seemed we had more dung flies than cash. Today, aircraft electronics from TQ are flying aboard commercial aircraft from the world’s largest manufacturers, and now in the general aviation fleet as well — from singles and twins, to gliders and homebuilts — where dependability and simplicity are not only desired, but required. In every market, our aircraft electronics are engineered and built to incredibly exacting standards. In short, we’re hard-wired for excellence. And we can simply be defined in two words: Undeniably German.

bend those fancy curves for vintage aircraft, or if you are plagued with a problem reverse compound curve for your project, stop by the metal workshop inside the Vintage Hangar near the red pylon and meet Maxwell Wenglarz. At 17 years old he is one of the youngest — but most experienced — Vintage teachers and volunteers, having attended and volunteered at AirVenture for the last 12 years. Maxwell and his family pulled up to the Vintage Hangar Saturday morning following a 3 a.m. departure and a 4.5-hour drive from his home in San Pierre, Indiana. He is in charge of the aircraft parts division of the family sheet metal business. Though they can bend and fabricate almost any complex metal part, they specialize in wing fairings for Waco aircraft. He began coming to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh with his father, David, when he was 5 years old. His volunteer work at that tender age was sweeping up shavings and staying out of trouble. Somewhere around 2012 his mother, Allison, and his sister, Emily, began coming and made it a family affair. Allison volunteers in the VAA Red Barn, and Emily spends her time helping out in the VAA Red Barn Store. The family fits in well with the goal of the Vintage Aircraft Association, which is “to encourage and aid the retention and restoration of antique, historical, classical, and contemporary aircraft, and to improve aviation safety and education.” At first blush that sounds like they’re all about airplanes, but in reality, it’s all about people, according to Maxwell. “I love talking to people about old airplanes and how to keep them flying,” he said. He is one of fewer than a dozen Vintage Youth Ambassadors who are charged with reaching out to a younger generation and introducing them to older aircraft.
“Look out into that field and how many young guys do you see flying these (vintage) aircraft? I know a select few who are doing it,” Maxwell said. “Who’s flying them? A bunch of old guys. If we’re going to keep old airplanes flying we need to attract a bunch of young people to buy them, fix them, and fly them.” It comes as no surprise that at 17, which is the minimum age allowed by the FAA, he already has his private pilot certificate. He soloed with nine hours in a Piper Warrior and got his ticket soon thereafter. He is also set to advance in his piloting skills. He owns a 1939 Waco UPF-7 that used to belong to Continental Motors, another 1940 UPF-7, and a Pietenpol Sky Scout. When asked his advice for young people who would like to fly, he said, “Don’t be shy. Go out to the airport and talk to people who have airplanes. Tell them you’ll wash their airplane for 30 minutes (of flying time).” Maxwell will be teaching, demonstrating techniques, and answering questions in the metal workshop of the Vintage Hangar, near the red pylon, from 8 a.m. until noon, every day. His youth, energy, and talent bode a bright future for vintage aircraft.

2019 Chairman’s Award Goes to Coyle Schwab THE CHAIRMAN’S AWARD PROVIDES an
opportunity to personally acknowledge members whose participation and contributions represent the essence of EAA . The recipient of the 2019 Chairman’s Award, Coyle Schwab, has been an EAA member for more than 25 years and is currently a lifetime member of the organization. With varied aviation interests, Coyle also holds memberships in the Vintage Aircraft Association, EAA Warbirds of America, and the International Aerobatic Club. Cessna 195s are a particular passion of his, and he has served as president of the International Cessna 195 Club for many years. “I’m proud to be the Chairman of EAA’s Type Club Coalition — an organization comprised of dozens of type specific aircraft owners and enthusiasts,” Coyle said. “Together we have sought to better understand and share information that leads to safer and more efficient flight and use of our airplanes. The TCC is actively supported by many type club representatives and all are excited to share their experiences and techniques.”
Coyle believes that by sharing knowledge and information, every aviator can become a more proficient and safer pilot and aircraft owner. He understands that while the airplanes that pilots fly vary greatly, there is a common thirst for knowledge and many ways that all flyers can, and must, work together to preserve the freedom of flight. Coyle has headed EAA’s Type Club Coalition and was one of the first to step forward to say that it is vital for all of the individual type clubs to be unified in order to make the entire GA community stronger. “None of this would have happened were it not for EAA’s leadership and guidance,” Coyle said. “Sean Elliott, Tom Charpentier and Kyle Ludwick each have been excellent role models and continue to offer resources and counsel as we continue to find new and innovative ways to achieve the objective of enhanced safety.” For his service and involvement that certainly makes EAA a better organization and aviation a better community, EAA is proud to present Coyle Schwab of St. Charles, Illinois, with the EAA Chairman’s Award.

RAY SCHOLARS GATHER AT SOCIAL BY CHRISTINA BASKEN
PHOTO BY CHRISTINA BASKEN
AIRVENTURE TODAY STAFF
EAA AIRVENTURE OSHKOSH 2019 hosted and
welcomed 33 of 75 young recipients of the Ray Aviation Scholarship on Monday. Through the generous support of the Ray Foundation, EAA provides up to $10,000 to deserving youths for their flight training expenses, totaling $1,000,000 in scholarships annually. “It’s fantastic to have 33 of our current 75 Ray Scholars here in Oshkosh. I can’t think of a better place than AirVenture for these kids to spend time around other aviation enthusiasts, chapter members, and just people within the industry to learn, get motivated, and go back to their home airport to finish up their flight training,” said Chapter Field Representative II David Leiting.
The Ray Scholars attending AirVenture Oshkosh 2019 represent hard work, talent, and enthusiasm for flight training.
Director of the Ray Aviation Scholars Program Chuck Ahearn said, “With women in aviation at a low percentage, accounting for 6 percent of the pilot community across the industry, EAA is proud to announce that 30 percent of the recipients are not only females, but extremely
hard-working, talented, and well-deserving recipients.” Recipient Jazmin Spreiter currently has 21 hours under her belt and hopes to solo when she gets back home from Oshkosh. “I wanted to go to UND or a college that had a flight school, but that wasn’t an option
for me because my parents didn’t have enough money and my GPA wasn’t good enough to get scholarships for college out of high school,” Jazmin said. “I just kind of felt stuck for a while. I was cleaning people’s airplanes and working [at] a local airport to get hours, and I was trying to scramble everything I had to pay for flight lessons. Without this scholarship, I would have gotten really far behind, and I might have even given up on my dream.” Chuck said his favorite part of this event is the overwhelming enthusiasm of the adults and chapter members. “We’re carrying on James Ray’s mission, and his mission was to help young people in this country develop life skills through aviation,” Chuck said. “If you have the discipline to go through flight training successfully, you have the discipline to go through anything you want to do successfully.”

Exciting Updates From the Lindbergh Innovation Forum COMMERCIAL SUPERSONIC
BY BARBARA A. SCHMITZ
AIRVENTURE TODAY STAFF
FLYING TO EUROPE in less than two hours.
Traveling to space. Building airplanes that are more aerodynamic and better in crosswinds. Those changes are coming, and sooner than you think. The Lindbergh Innovation Forum on Tuesday gave people a chance to look into the future of aviation, with a lineup that included speakers from Blue Origin, NASA, and other organizations about topics ranging from artificial intelligence in aviation to VTOL and propulsion. Here are some highlights:
Ed Waggoner, director of the Integrated Aviation Systems Program at NASA, told of a future where people living in Oshkosh or Appleton could attend a meeting in London or Paris, and be back in their own bed that same night. “This will happen within our lifetime,” he said. “We believe there is a market for urban air mobility, and not just from midtown Manhattan to JFK airport, but that could serve underserved areas.” Ed sees a future for supersonic flight, even though the United States and world prohibit commercial airlines from flying at supersonic speeds over land because of the sound. NASA isn’t alone in that belief, he noted, with companies like Boom Supersonic and Aerion Supersonic also entering the market.

“We’re committed to first flying in 2022, and I believe it may actually occur in 2021,” Ed said. “We believe fast air traffic … will be affordable, very efficient, and environmentally friendly,” he said, and should transform business travel. HYPERSONIC TRAVEL
A.J. Piplica, CEO of Hermeus, is looking to create even faster travel, and said hypersonic travel, flying through the atmosphere below about 55 miles at speeds above Mach 5, should allow a plane to carry 20 people to Europe in about 90 minutes. He foresees that happening in the next eight to 10 years. But how much will that speed cost consumers? A.J. said it will be up to the airlines to determine prices, but he said it should be profitable in the business class market.
“But as technologies mature, prices will come down,” Ed said. “We see this starting out as a market not for the masses, but eventually that will be the case.” SPACE TRANSPORTATION
Tamaira Ross, principal manager with Blue Origin, said space transportation should also become more affordable with time. The commercial space sector is estimated at about $325 billion annually, and to keep costs down and make space travel affordable for both cargo and people, companies need to reduce their cost by getting more useful life out of their vehicles, increasing the frequency of their missions, and reducing operations and maintenance costs, she said.

NEWS & INFO
OPENER DONATES BLACKFLY eVTOL TO EAA AVIATION MUSEUM First-generation manned BlackFly on display OPENER HAS DONATED a first-generation manned BlackFly
vehicle to the EAA Aviation Museum. Designed and built by Opener, BlackFly is a fixed-wing, all-electric, vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) personal ultralight aircraft. The BlackFly will be displayed outside the Innovation Showcase at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019 from July 22-28. “BlackFly is an exciting addition to the museum’s collection of historic aircraft,” said Rick Larsen, EAA vice president of communities and member programs. “The Opener team tackled complicated problems, innovated modern battery and motor technologies, and showed the world that eVTOL is real. It is an honor to showcase this pioneering electric personal aerial vehicle.” “We are very honored that the EAA recognized our work and allowed us to showcase our greatest innovation yet at the museum of experimental aircraft,” said Marcus Leng, Opener founder and CEO. “Now
everyone can see Opener’s first-generation manned eVTOL aircraft.” BlackFly can easily take off and land on small areas and travel distances up to 35 miles (25 miles restricted in USA), at speeds up to 75 mph (62 mph restricted in USA). These personal aerial vehicles (PAV) are simple to master and require no formal licensing or special skills to operate safely in the USA.

“Opener has shown that electric flying vehicles are a viable and efficient mode of aerial transportation,” Rick added. “BlackFly vehicles are intended for everyone,” Marcus said. “We are proud to make history with these single-seat eVTOL aircraft and gratified to donate one of these BlackFly vehicles to EAA on their 50th anniversary of fly-in conventions at Oshkosh.” Safety is Opener’s No. 1 priority, without which no general adoption of this new eVTOL technology is possible. BlackFly vehicles have cumulatively flown more than 23,000 miles during more than 2,300 flights. Since introducing BlackFly at EAA AirVenture 2018, Opener has logged another 11,000 miles and 900 flights on preproduction models, has upgraded firmware and software, and has streamlined manufacturing. Opener has recently appointed aerospace industry veteran and innovator and EAA board member Ben Diachun to the senior leadership team as president. He will be overseeing the production and sale of the first 100 BlackFly eVTOL vehicles. The production version of BlackFly is on display all week in the Innovation Showcase, where AirVenture attendees, members, and investors can go to see the latest and greatest groundbreaking technology that aviation has to offer.

activities, today at the Power Lunch the EAA Aviation Foundation announced the formation of the Women Soar Society. The hope is that this is a growing group of women who are supporting other women in aviation to accomplish their goals and soar beyond their dreams. Part of EAA’s mission to celebrate women and foster success in the next generation of aviators is hosting a variety of women’s programs and scholarships through this society, including EAA WomenVenture, EAA GirlVenture camp, and more. By bringing together a carefully crafted group of women from a variety of backgrounds and different areas of aviation, the EAA Women Soar Society Advisory Board will focus on reaching more women at all stages of their aviation journey. EAA Aviation Foundation Women Soar Society Advisory Board Chair, EAA board member, and Sr. Fellow at Mitchell Institute Heather Penney said it is an honor to be associated with the women on the advisory board and is proud of their influence on the aviation community. “They are all leaders in their own right in aviation, incredible role models — not just for women, but for aviators and enthusiasts of all kinds — and to be able to bring together such an amazing group of talent to focus on women’s programming is a real privilege,” Heather said. Heather said there are a number of exciting initiatives in the aviation community to try to bring women together. “We think that EAA has a unique opportunity because of the expanse of our membership and the chapter organizations. We believe in collaboration, not competition, and we think that we can elevate everyone’s programming through the unique resources of EAA and the EAA Aviation Foundation.”
Women only comprise 6 percent of rated pilots. That number is lower in the military and even lower in fighter aviation.
“WE KNOW THAT THE DEMAND FOR AVIATION PROFESSIONALS IS ONLY GOING TO GROW IN THE FUTURE, AND BRINGING WOMEN INTO THAT TALENT POOL IS GOING TO BE ESSENTIAL IF WE ARE GOING TO MEET THAT DEMAND.” HEATHER PENNEY
“From my own background as a female fighter pilot, we represent approximately 2 percent of all fighter pilots and less than 0.5 percent of pilots in general within the Air Force,” Heather said. “We know that the demand for aviation professionals is only going to grow in the future, and bringing women into that talent pool is going to be essential if we are going to meet that demand.” A gift to the EAA Aviation Foundation Women Soar Society aims to support and celebrate women of all ages. “The overall vision and the goal for the Women Soar Society is to grow the participation of women in aviation careers and areas of passion,” Heather said. “We will be successful if the involvement of women in the general aviation community grows; it doesn’t necessarily have to be a professional occupation.” To find out more information about the EAA Aviation Foundation Women Soar Society and how to donate, please visit www.EAAWomenSoarSociety.org.
• Fights Rust & Corrosion • Reduces Cam & Lifter Wear
• Prevents Engine Deposits • Conditions Seals
ASL Camguard™ is an advanced oil supplement, F.A.A. accepted for use in most piston aircraft engines. Camguard is formulated to safeguard the investment in your aircraft engine by addressing the complex and interrelated problems of corrosion, carbon deposits and mechanical wear. Camguard combats corrosion by leaving a continuous film of inhibitor on metal surfaces. Camguard halts deposit formation, leaving your engine clean and parts free to move. So whether you fly a little or a lot, Camguard always pays dividends with decreased aircraft engine maintenance costs. Just adding 5% of ASL Camguard to your oil at every oil change provides peace of mind that comes with knowing your investment is protected.
WHAT ABOUT THESE OTHER AIRPLANES? A spotter’s guide to the EAA Aviation Museum aircraft around the grounds BY HAL BRYAN
AIRVENTURE TODAY STAFF
EVERY YEAR, more than 10,000 aircraft fly
to Wisconsin for EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. Of those, nearly 3,000 are showplanes — vintage aircraft, warbirds, homebuilts, aerobatic airplanes, etc. — that are displayed around the grounds. But some visitors may notice other airplanes parked here and there that didn’t fly in at all, because they’re part of the EAA Aviation Museum collection. Because our museum exhibits rotate, many of these aircraft are only viewable by the public during AirVenture, spending the rest of the year in long-term storage on the convention grounds. Here’s a guide to some of these airplanes that you’ll see as you wander the neighborhoods of AirVenture.

In 1975, a couple of pilots named Tom Jewett and Gene Sheehan approached designer Burt Rutan to ask him to design an airplane around an 18-hp industrial
generator engine. The unusual tailless design with the large canard was introduced at Oshkosh in 1978. The museum’s example is serial No. 4.

pilots in the United States at that time, just 117 of them were women. That year, for the first time, women pilots were finally granted access to air racing, with 20 pilots competing in the first transcontinental Air Derby f ro m Sa n t a Mo n i c a t o Cleveland — but only in airc ra f t w i t h h o r s e p owe r deemed “appropriate for a woman.” Perhaps it was during this nine-day race that the idea of forming an organization to provide support for women pilots took root. That November, the 117 U.S. women pilots were invited to assemble at Curtiss Field in Valley Stream, Long Island, New York, to provide “mutual support, advance aviation, and maintain historical records on women in aviation” — three goals that guide the organization to this day. Louise Thaden, the winner of that first women’s Air Derby, was elected secretary and worked to keep the group together. In 1931 Amelia Earhart was elected the first president, and the organization was named the Ninety-Nines to represent the 99 charter members. November 2, 2019, marks the 90th anniversary of that first meeting at Curtiss Field. Now more than 6,000 members strong, the Ninety-Nines has spread its wings around the globe, with 156 chapters in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, New Zealand, and the Middle East. Every Ninety-Nine is a pilot or student pilot, and members represent all facets of aviation — commercial pilots, flight instructors, military pilots, helicopter
pilots, balloon pilots, aerobatic pilots, astronauts, and for-the-fun-of-it pilots. In fulfillment of its mission to honor the history of women in aviation, The Ninety-Nines Inc. owns two museums: the Amelia Earhart Birthplace Museum in Atchison, Kansas, and the Museum of Women Pilots located in the NinetyNines headquarters building at Will Rogers Airport in Oklahoma City. Each year, the Amelia Earhart Memorial Scholarship Fund awards thousands of dollars in scholarships to members who are pursuing advanced ratings, completing their initial training, or conducting academic research in an aviation field. The annual International Conference and Career Expo offers a hiring fair, educational seminars, inspirational speakers, an opportunity to explore an interesting locale, and lots of hangar flying! All female pilots, student pilots, and aspiring pilots are welcome to attend a local chapter meeting, a regional section meeting, or any Ninety-Nines event. The Ninety-Nines website, www. Ninety-Nines.org, is a great source of information, including how to find a local chapter. Join us!

Fly to your next destination faster and more economically with Mooney, the aircraft pilots love for its best-in-class speed and sporty handling. Mooney aircraft are born of innovation combined with an artist’s sensibility for what it should feel like to soar above the clouds. As aviation pioneers, we’ve celebrated an abundance of firsts—from the fastest coast-to-coast flight on a single-engine, piston-powered certified aircraft to the ability to exceed the cruising speeds of most general aviation planes. We meticulously hand-build each aircraft, and thoughtfully select the metal, composites, and finishing. From the big picture to the smallest details, Mooney aircraft are a fusion of technical innovation and sophistication. For us, it’s not about image, or bells and whistles. It’s about the experience of a Mooney: simplicity, safety, speed, and style. Once you fly a Mooney, you won’t be able to imagine flying anything else.
ABOVE: Marion Cole was founder of the original Red Devils Aerobatic Team, acting as the lead pilot with wingmen Gene Soucy and Bob Heuer from 1969 to 1971.
LEFT: The vertical/short takeoff and landing (V/STOL) Harrier, a mainstay of the British Royal Air Force and Royal Navy as well as the U.S. Marine Corps, impressed the crowd in 1978, just as it does today.
RIGHT: Ace Don Gentile scored 7.5 of his 21 aerial victories in a P-51B named Shangri-La.

NASA ANNOUNCES MAJOR STEP IN ARTEMIS PROGRAM TO EXPLORE MOON BY ELIZABETH LANDAU, JET PROPULSION LABORATORY
POWER AND PROPULSION ELEMENT PHOTO COURTESY OF NASA
ON APRIL 9, NASA expressed its commit-
ment to a timeline of landing humans on the lunar south pole by 2024. The agency’s two-phased approach is focused on speed — landing astronauts on the moon in five years — and establishing a sustained human presence on and around the moon by 2028. A CHARGE FORWARD
The Artemis program will send the first woman and the next man to the moon by 2024. The program takes its name from the twin sister of Apollo and goddess of the moon in Greek mythology. In one of the first steps to accomplish this bold goal, NASA announced its Commercial Lunar Payload Services (CLPS) initiative, in which companies under contract can bid on delivering science and technology payloads to the moon. These public-private partnerships will be essential to the development of the Artemis program by helping NASA study the moon ahead of a human return.
human exploration and operations, space technology, science, and aeronautics. The awards green-lit 142 proposals from 129 U.S. small businesses. Many of these selected projects have direct applications to Artemis and other future human exploration endeavors.
NEW TECHNOLOGIES FROM SMALL BUSINESS
On May 14, NASA announced small business awards totaling $106 million that included technologies in the areas of
The ambitious Gateway lunar outpost, which will enable access to more of the moon than ever before, will need power, propulsion, and communications capabilities. The power and propulsion element, the first element of the Gateway that will launch to lunar orbit, is a spacecraft itself. It will fly by means of a technology called solar electric propulsion, but with three times more power than what has flown so far. This power and propulsion element will provide communications relays, including for human and robotic landers as well as visiting vehicles. NASA is targeting a launch of this element no later than December 2022.
HUMAN LANDER PROTOTYPES
NASA is planning to get astronauts to the lunar surface and back through a
multipart landing system. They will start on the Gateway orbiting lunar outpost and ride down to low-lunar orbit in a spacecraft called a “transfer element.” Then, a different spacecraft called the “descent element” will take them down to the moon’s surface. An ascent element will take them back to the Gateway. On May 16, NASA selected 11 companies to advance technology to land humans on the moon.
On May 31 as part of the CLPS initiative, NASA selected the first three commercial moon landing service providers that will deliver science and technology payloads to the lunar surface. These missions will acquire new science measurements and enable important technology demonstrations, whose data will inform the development of future landers and other exploration systems needed for astronauts to return to the moon by 2024. The NASA Pavilion in Aviation Gateway Park features Artemis information for visitors to learn about and enjoy.

Stories of Oshkosh â€” Ruth Gallatin-Bock BY CHRISTINA BASKEN
AIRVENTURE TODAY STAFF
TO CELEBRATE 50 consecutive years of fly-
in conventions in Oshkosh, weâ€™re featuring stories of Oshkosh told by attendees remembering their special moments at EAAâ€™s long-standing home. Ruth Gallatin-Bock, EAA 340695, recalls her memories of growing up at EAA fly-ins with her father Harold Gallatin, EAA 20, who was one of the original five to help Paul Poberezny turn AirVenture into what it is today. I was raised by founding member Harold Gallatin, EAA 20. We spent our Sundays at Hales Corners Airport watching our dadâ€™s friends take off and land for many years. I always loved flying but was the youngest of three girls, so flying for me did not come until later in life. I soloed in 1997 at Timmerman Airport, but was unable to finish my training as the extra medical tests every two years became too expensive for me. My sisters and I helped fold newsletters in Paulâ€™s basement office. I, as a teenager, helped level the land for the first museum in Hales Corners and spent summer days keeping the membership renewals up to date. Membership was on

an index card at the time. I guess you could say I was dadâ€™s shadow â€Ś when he went to EAA, so did I. As a pre-teen, I helped my mother register airplanes as they arrived. I remember cheering when the 100th homebuilt arrived the last day of the Rockford fly-in. As a teenager, until the Oshkosh Sky Shoppe had four walls, I was the sales girl, display manager, and cashier for EAAâ€™s souvenir tent â€” sometimes other teens would join me. Dad was one of the first five men who gathered at Carl Schultzâ€™s kitchen table and talked about how a club of homebuilders with common interests and skills might get â€œaviation out of the dulldrumsâ€? (I believe those were Paul Pobereznyâ€™s words). Paul went off to Korea for a while. When he returned, Paul gathered those same men and the rest is history. Dad was a director for eight-plus years. Dad told the story of how he met Paul this way: Some years before EAA started, Dad was on the roof of the hangar he was building, and a kid kept hanging around and asking so many questions about flying that he was having a hard time getting his hangar finished. He suggested to this young man that if he was so interested, then he should learn by doing. So, Dad gave Paul his plans for a Corben Baby Ace. Their friendship began there and grew to a lifetime of respect for each other. Dad was a workaholic. As to his specific input into early planning for EAA Oshkosh fly-ins, I do not know. I know we were at the first fly-in at Timmerman Airport â€” eight or so airplanes â€” from sunup to sundown that weekend. Rockford was the time of Dadâ€™s directorship, and he was more involved in its planning. The plane raffle, camping, shower buildings, and wake-up â€œbuzzâ€? started then. As EAA started to become financially successful, he was proud of

how EAA was growing and sharing the how-tos he felt were so important. I remember him talking about the move to Oshkosh as exciting and great for the future of EAA. I know Dad worked long hours every weekend creating roads, many of them being in Paulâ€™s Woods. My best memory of the first fly-in was a ride on the trailer bed, picking up the left-behind tiedowns. The ride across the bumpy field made the bunch of kids I was with laugh and giggle. I was part of the reason EAA is now so clean all the time. Paul and Dad were tired of us kids hanging around, so Paul handed us a stick with a nail on the end and told us to keep the airport clean. A precedent was set for future generations. My father said his favorite memory was the year they recognized the first 100 members. They took a group picture that year. He treasured that. Those were all close friends. Dad died in 2001. I went back two years afterward, and it was just too hard. EAA was my childhood vacations, hobby, and dreams. I will attend when my health allows, as I am now 73 years old. I try to go now for a day, but no more camping.
