AIRVENTURE CANCELLED

The world’s largest annual gathering of aviation enthusiasts – AirVenture – has been cancelled for 2020 due to the global pandemic known as COVID-19. Leaders of the event said the decision to cancel was a hard one, but necessary due to the many unknowns that are ahead.

More than 600,000 people converge on Oshkosh, WI, near the end of July each year to celebrate all things aviation. The Virginia Department of Aviation has had a presence at the event for more than 45 years.

Event organizers say the show will go on next year with a start date of July 26, 2021.
