The Vicki Cruse Educational Pavilion was dedicated by the International Aerobatic Club (IAC) July 29, 2010 in honor of aerobatic pilot and IAC President Vicki Cruse who lost her life in an aircraft accident in 2009 while a member of the U.S. Unlimited Aerobatic Team. During EAA AirVenture, the lobby area contains interesting exhibits and the IAC holds seminars in the meeting rooms daily. A memorial stands outside of the front entrance, often adorned with flowers and messages.
Here is just a sample of the aerobatic aircraft on display around the pavilion, with much more coverage to come.
