New Digs!

Pilots headed to camp with their homebuilts at AirVenture this year will find something new--a recently finished (they were putting metal on it yesterday) Pavilion dominates the Homebuilt Camping area offering shade, barbecues, tables, charging stations--and morning coffee! The new addition to the AirVenture grounds will become a central meeting point for campers and folks who need a place to take a break from the sun and frenetic activity of the show.

It's not a bad place for a journalist to sit with an iPad and scratch out stories either.
