 2011 EAA AirVenture

Versacom Inc. begins its fourth consecutive year supporting Ford Motor Company at the annual EAA AirVenture program, known as the “world’s greatest aviation celebration”. EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association) is an international organization of aviation pilots and enthusiasts based in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Since its inception in 1953, it has grown internationally with over 160,000 members comprised of individuals and businesses in chapters worldwide. 

EAA nurtures the spirit of flight through events and outreach programs including a technical counselor and flight advisor program and the Young Eagles initiative, which has provided airplane rides and aviation education support to more than 1.5 million children interested in aviation.

Each summer EAA presents, what is recognized as, the largest annual general aviation event in the world, “EAA AirVenture", at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. The weeklong gathering draws thousands of aircraft that fly in for the occasion and attendance of more than 500,000. The event also attracts major corporate exhibitors, hosts hundreds of forums, seminars and workshops, and welcomes nearly 700 journalists each year.

Versacom supports Ford’s involvement with the event by handling all PR for the program as well as scripting for video elements and live remarks by Ford executives. These activities help build and reinforce the Ford Motor Company brand and its involvement with EAA AirVenture.
