Greetings from The Aero Experience Team

Greetings!



The Aero Experience is a celebration of Midwest aviation and aerospace achievement. We invite you to join us as we explore the treasures of Midwest aviation through first-hand experiences. Our contributors take turns flying lead, and we are always looking for new destinations. Check in with The Aero Experience frequently to see where we will land today, and then go out and have your own aero experiences!

Blue skies,

April 2020 General Aviation (and More!) Survey


The Aero Experience looks back on 2020 with this General Aviation (and More!) Survey. Here we present a collection of the general aviation and other aircraft we encountered during our visits to Creve Coeur Airport and Gateway Flight Training earlier this year. We hope that you will enjoy this photo essay, and we look forward to more activity as general aviation makes a strong recovery in the near future.

EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019: Airshows-Saturday Night Airshow, Part 10


The Aero Experience continues our coverage of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019, sponsored by Elite Aviation, with our final series featuring airshow performers. The Saturday night airshow is a seminal event, highlighting the final weekend of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh in grand style. The Saturday night airshow is a combination of high drama, colorful skies and patriotic entertainment that melds tens of thousands of people into one family. The atmosphere of comradery, emotional engagement and sensory overload experienced during the night airshow is the high point of the nation's largest aviation event.

Some of the performers from our previous coverage of the daily airshows will be included in the night airshow coverage. Here we feature the very memorable Saturday evening Air Force Heritage Flight with three P-51 Mustangs and the USAF F-22 Raptor, with the solo Raptor Demo following the formation passes.
