Vintage will be featuring a static display of Fun and Affordable Vintage planes at AirVenture.

We are not looking for award winners. We are also not looking for basket cases. We ARE looking for affordable “every day flying” planes which will be showcased just east of our iconic Red Barn. Space is limited and it is a showcase area only – no camping with your aircraft.

Most visitors to Vintage don’t realize that owning an airworthy type certificated FUN and AFFORDABLE vintage plane can be purchased for around $15,000. That’s one-half to one-third of the cost of a new SUV. A good price range for a fun and affordable vintage airplane is in the $15,000 to $40,000 range.

Specifically, we are looking for one example of each of the following aircraft:

Aeronca Chief, Aeronca Champ, Cessna 120 – 140 – 140A, Cessna 150 – 170 – 172, Commonwealth Skyranger, Culver Cadet, Ercoupe, Funk, Interstate Cadet, Luscombe 8E and 8A, Piper Cherokee 140, Piper Tri-Pacer, Piper Pacer, Piper Clipper, Piper Colt, Piper Vagabond, Piper J3 – J4 – J5 Cubs, Porterfield, Stinson 108, Taylorcraft


  • Your aircraft must have been manufactured prior to December 31, 1970
  • You must be a current member of EAA and the Vintage Aircraft Association
  • You must request a showcase spot in advance – space is limited – first come, first served by aircraft type
  • Your arrival must be scheduled prior to 10:00 am on Monday, July 22, 2019 and you agree to remain throughout AirVenture
  • You may not camp with your aircraft in the showcase area
  • We would like you to spend some time at your plane talking with visitors, and perhaps even have a live Flash-Mob interview with Ray Johnson at your plane.

If you are interested in parking your plane in the showcase, please submit the form below. One of our volunteer chairmen will get back to you. All fields of the form are required.
