AirVenture Attendance Up 10-13-14:
Have you ever been to the EAA AirVenture? Well, I must confess
that I have never been, but I've heard a lot of hangar talk about the show
and about the adventure of flying into and out of Oshkosh. According to
EAA chairman Jack Pelton, the attendance at AirVenture 2014 appears higher
than last year and may be up as much as double digits for some days. Final
numbers won't be available for a couple of weeks. AVweb says that Saturday
reported good foot traffic and strong sales among exhibitors. This year
was the first time the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds performed at the AirVenture.
EAA heavily promoted the airshow acts. According to Avweb, "We tried to
promote the fact that we were having the Thunderbirds and that we were
having a lot of variety. The Valdez routine got a lot of buzz. For me,
the One Week Wonder is one of the best things we're doing this week," Pelton
added. Pelton said the Thunderbird show fits Oshkosh better then some of
the more show-center military acts, which can be painfully noisy at times.

AOPA Debonair winner is... 10-6-14:
to the new AOPA Debonair winner. But... but... he already
has an airplane! Oh well, it seems that all the winners lately are current
plane owners. Although, it would be nice to see someone win one of the
planes that doesn't already own an aircraft. How about one of those rusty
pilots they talk about that hasn't flown in a while and is having doubts
about keeping up his private pilots license due to the increase in rental
cost, not to mention the need to keep up with regulations, seminars, FBO
requirements and procedures. However, if you won the Debonair you might
need to add the $175,000 value of the plane to your income... yikes! Not
to mention the convoluted technicalities of a 30 or 40% up front gift tax?
Hmm, that might cost you around $70,000 before you even say, "clear!" So,
you fly the Debonair for a year at $160/hr for 300 hours ($48,000) then
sell at the end of the year and you might have around $50k left over. Then
you can take your wife on a cruise to the Bahamas.
