Dumb Oshkosh/caravan question.

Recommended Posts

I'm registered for the caravan, got my formation time in.

Do I need to buy a ticket for Osh? Or is that a part of the caravan registration??

Yes you still need an OSH ticket.

@ragedracer1977 you can PM me if you have any Caravan/OSH questions.  I have flown with the Caravan the past couple of years and will again this year.

Thanks guys! Looks I just pay when we get there, I just wanted to make sure I didn’t miss anything.

When are you flying up to Madison? Are you doing it in one day? I'm leaving from Denver early Friday morning, the 19th.

There was an upcoming deadline for ordering the lower cost Oshkosh tickets thru the EAA...

Check with the EAA, to purchase electronic tickets... the discount required buying a membership first and then daily tickets...

you can then download the tickets to your phone and store it in your I-wallet...

in the end, you save a few cents, and get the fancy EAA magazine... that has MS’ Yooper’s kit plane story in it... :)

Best regards,

And now for another dumb question. Tickets say "be prepared to show your EAA membership card at the gate".  I don't have a clue where my membership card is.  I don't carry extra stuff in my wallet.  

Is that *really* an issue?

I got an EAA member number, in an email... it took a few minutes to come through... then I ordered the tix with the number...

When I show up at the gate, the barcoded individual tix will probably all be linked back to that credit card transaction with my EAA member number on it...

That’s going to be a fun day at the gate...  :)

This is the first time where I am the member... the other three times, I was along for the ride...

Best regards,

I assume with the advanced ticket purchase you will still need to get your wrist bands (one per day/person) and camping permit for your tent.  When you pick up those items at the north 40 gate they can look up your membership on the computer.
