“We are very excited to be celebrating AirVenture’s 50th anniversary with EAA,” said Dennis Martin, Enstrom director of sales and marketing. “This show is personal to us at Enstrom, as AirVenture has always been in our backyard. A lot of us have been coming here since we were kids. Enstrom has been a fixture at AirVenture for years, and to get to fly in aircraft we built and show them to over a half million people is just a dream come true.”
