Oshbash: 2014 Oshkosh must!

What is an Oshbash

"Oshbash is the official social networking "meetup" event of the Airplanista Aviation Blog and writer Dan Pimentel. This is the AirVenture event where #avgeeks from Twitter and the online aviation family meet each other in person, many for the first time. Both previous Oshbash events in 2011 and 2013 filled the Press Tent with "standing room only" audiences.

At Oshbash 2014, Airplanista is hosting a high-profile Panel Discussion that will bring some of the aviation industry's most influential people together in one room. The only agenda will be to spark a transparent conversation as one body, one voice to discuss how we get to one million certificated pilots."

You are invited!

  1. Won't get to OSH until Aug 1st, so I'll miss it :(

    1. So sad I will miss you! I was planning on the second half of the week... but now I'm flying. Thankfully I was able to coordinate for a few days. Wish you could make this event!

  2. I wouldn't miss this for the world! This will be my first time at Oshkosh, and certainly plan to be at OSHBASH!!!

    1. Glad you will make it! You will have a blast and I'll see you at the event!

  3. Will you only be there on Tuesday? I get in Thursday and leave Sunday. :) Would love to see you!

    1. Yes!!! Come to Oshbash and we'll sit together! I have to leave Wed as I fly to Paris Thursday.


Thank you for your comment! If your comment doesn't appear immediately, it will after I land. Enjoy the journey!
