The Wipaire Main Display
Booth 226-228 Outside Hangar D
Ever wondered what skis fit a Husky, what floats are best for a Cessna 185, how ADS-B compliance affects you, or what the latest aircraft listings are? Come visit us outside Hangar D and check out our new interactive touch display. You can explore our many products, services, and aircraft for sale, plus see exactly what we can do for your airplane!
Outside, be sure to take in our variety of display aircraft. We’ll have a spectacular Aviat Husky on Wipline 2100 floats, a very special Cessna Caravan on Wipline 8750 floats, and even a stunning Beech 18 on wheels. We’ve got lots to show off, and every airplane has its own story. Come learn what we can do for your airplane!
New Seaplane Base Display
The seaplane base is arguably the best hideaway in Oshkosh. This shaded, serene escape is home to dozens of seaplanes throughout the week and offers a relaxed destination for when your feet are sore, your clothes dusty, and you’re looking for a bit of quiet. It’s a unique place, and we’re proud to be the presenting sponsor of the seaplane base. Take the bus from amphibian parking or the main bus park area ($3 roundtrip) or drive down (parking fee applies).
We’re excited to share our new and upgraded location and display with you! You can’t miss our red cabin, complete with a porch and rocking chair. Check out a beautiful Cessna 165 Airmaster on display on our spacious new dock, or come inside to browse a curated selection of new seaplane pilot apparel and supplies and visit with our knowledgeable staff. On Saturday night, come down for the watermelon social and pick up your commemorative event mug at the cabin! (ticket required)
On Thursday, Wipaire’s own Larry Brickey will be giving a presentation on proper maintenance of floats. Find him at 1:30 pm in the event tent at the seaplane base. FAA WINGS credit is available!
Whether you’re flying in or driving in, be sure to check out the wide variety of aircraft on display. In addition to the vintage Airmaster, we’ll have a Boss 182 moored, plus a bit of a surprise in the lagoon. You won’t be able to miss it!
Mission Aviation Fellowship and Wipaire Celebrate a Milestone
We’ll be celebrating the delivery of our 100th set of Wipline 8750 floats on Wednesday, July 25th, at 10:15 am in our main display outside Hangar D. One of our longtime customers, Mission Aviation Fellowship, will be putting the airplane to work in remote and vulnerable communities in Papua, Indonesia after the show ends. Learn more about MAF’s lifesaving work here: https://www.maf.org/what-we-do We hope to see you Wednesday!
