The first annual convention and fly-in for EAA members in Canada launches this weekend, Friday through Sunday, at the Ottawa/Gatineau Airport. The event has generated high anticipation, according to EAA, and offers a wide range of activities, including food and social events, and a visit to Canada's National Museum of Air & Space, with a Battle of Britain fly-by featuring a Lancaster, Spitfires, Hurricanes, and more. On Saturday, the Vintage Wings of Canada will present their popular annual airshow at the field. Admission, parking and camping is free to all EAA members. The event website offers a detailed schedule as well as information for those planning to fly in and those looking for campsites or hotels.
