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!

EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019: Giles Aircraft 25th Anniversary

The Aero Experience continues our coverage of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019, sponsored by Elite Aviation, with this look at the Giles AkroTech G-200 and G-202 series of experimental, aerobatic aircraft. Owners of the G-200 and G-202 aircraft celebrated the 25th anniversary of the first flight of the series with an indoor exhibit, aircraft displays and airshow appearances throughout the week. 

These aircraft were designed by Richard Giles as the first carbon-fiber single and two-seat aerobatic aircraft types. About ninety aircraft were produced before MX Aircraft purchased the aircraft production rights in 2001, and later developed the aircraft into later MXS and MX2 models. Here we include views from around the grounds and during the airshow fly-bys.
