Some of the world’s top air show performers have made commitments to fly at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2024 – the World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration – as part of the afternoon and night air show lineups.

Performers at the 71st Experimental Aircraft Association fly-in convention, scheduled for July 22-28 at Wittman Regional Airport, include aerobatic champions and longtime Oshkosh favorites. The event features nine air shows over seven days, including night airshows on July 24 and 27. Daily afternoon air shows are presented by Daher and Pratt & Whitney, while night air shows are presented by Covington Aircraft (July 24) and PenFed (July 27).

“Whether it’s during the afternoon or night air shows at Oshkosh, the performers who fly here are headliners who are among the best in the world,” said Rick Larsen, EAA’s vice president of communities and member programs, who coordinates AirVenture features and attractions. “The air show community knows that the AirVenture crowds are the most knowledgeable anywhere, and appreciate the skill and precision necessary to fly these aircraft to the edge. That brings out the best in these pilots and creates unforgettable memories every year at Oshkosh.”
