People come to Oshkosh for the airplanes, but they stay for the people. That’s according to EAA Chairman Jack Pelton, who explains why the culture at AirVenture is so unique, why America needs more of this spirit in everyday life, and his favorite place to visit at the big show. He also shares the organization’s big plans for the 30th year of the Young Eagles program, why experimental airplanes are so popular right now, and what his top priorities are for the FAA. In the Ready to Copy segment, Jack explains why you can’t build a new Cessna 172 for $100,000, shares his favorite vintage airplane, and identifies some underrated aviation museums.
