EAA AirVenture - July 24th - 30th, 2017 - Oshkosh, Wisconsin USA
The Christen Eagle II was introduced to the aviation world at EAA Oshkosh 1977. At AirVenture 2017, we will celebrate the 40th anniversary of this stellar, award-winning aerobatic biplane. Frank Christensen, president of Christen Industries, set the gold standard for kit-built aircraft with his series of kits and builder manuals. A single-seat version was also built by Christen for the famous Eagles Aerobatic Team which flew at Oshkosh for 25 years.

Arrival by Aircraft
The NOTAM which describes AirVenture arrival and departure procedures is available for download as follows and is linked at the bottom of this article as well:
IAC members arriving in their aircraft will be directed by EAA Parking personnel to the "IAC" parking area, which includes the Eagles arriving for the 40th Anniversary and the EXTRAs arriving for the 30th Anniversary. IAC Parking is directly across from the IAC Pavilion with the Eagles and EXTRAs parking segregated from the rest and along the road which runs north-south in front of the IAC Pavilion.
The NOTAM describes the sign that pilots should bring in their airplanes with “IAC” printed in bold letters. This sign will be shown to EAA Parking personnel so they can direct you to the IAC parking area. It is a simple and efficient system and a sample sign is found HERE for printing and carriage in your aircraft.
