Rod Hightower, CEO of the Experimental Aircraft Association, says he expects attendance at the EAA AirVenture this year to be down slightly from the 541,000 people who attended last year. However, he estimates that more than 500,000 people attended the aviation event last week in Oshkosh, Wis. "Despite the struggles in the overall economy, the aviation community knows Oshkosh is the place to be not only for finding out what's new and available in aviation, but for buying your goods and services you might need in the upcoming year," Hightower said.
