Aircraft Spruce & Specialty Co. announced that it has purchased the former home of Paul and Audrey Poberezny in Oshkosh, WI and will make the home available to the EAA for tours and special events. The original stone farmhouse is over 100 years old and was Paul and Audrey's home from 1991 until his death in 2013. Located near Wittman Field, the 9 acre estate reflects the standards and culture the Pobereznys utilized in building the world's leading sport aviation organization, EAA, and the world's premier aviation event, AirVenture. This home hosted many of aviations leaders and icons, and countless aviation artifacts and photos representing the relationships and events that shaped Paul's remarkable life are on display throughout the home, providing insight into the lifetime passion and vision of one of aviation's greatest leaders. This is where Paul built airplanes, read about aviation history, and wrote countless letters and articles. As he often said, "There isn't a day that goes by that I don't say the word airplane".
Aircraft Spruce and the Irwin family have maintained a close relationship with the Poberezny family and EAA for over 50 years and is honored to have the opportunity to partner with the EAA to make this historic home available to EAA members and aviation enthusiasts in the years ahead. Contact EAA for details on visiting the Poberezny home beginning in the summer of 2017.
Aircraft Spruce will begin distributing printed copies and CD versions of their new 2016-2017 catalog at EAA AirVenture. Few people today begin a homebuilt or restoration project without an Aircraft Spruce catalog, and most people who own a certified aircraft find it invaluable for routine maintenance, upgrades, and pilot supplies. There are hundreds of new products in the catalog as one might expect of a company that offers over 100,000 different items relating to aviation.
