I have the same problem, so many cool events I want to attend, but there is only so much vacation time to do it all with!

Hey Justin,

How is the location chosen each year for Cockpit Fest? Any thoughts at doing it at/during EAA Air Venture in Oshkosh, WI? Another location is Volk Field Air Force Base (NG) in Camp Douglas, WI, as they normally do an open house event, and they have a museum, as well as outside static full size flight displays.

John

Here is a link to Volk Field's Open House photos in 2012:

http://www.volkfield.ang.af.mil/photos/mediagallery.asp?galleryID=10155

I know they had an open house in May of 2014, but not sure about 2015. I was thinking about 2016 for a Cockpit Fest visit...

Hello John,

The Dallas area is the current choice in part for the following reasons,

*Its a relatively central US US for those trailering in cockpits and exhibits. That maximizes the ability of East coast, West coast, and central US participation.

*It has an international airport for those flying in from abroad.

*The Cold War Air Museum has a large hanger facility for our event to ensure we are not rained out (as happend once in Kansas). Last year it poured rain Friday evening but the rain had no negative impact on the hanger dinner/social and the cockpits stayed dry.

*The Cold War Air Museum staff is incredibly supportive and the museum helps underwrite the event rather than charging us to use their facility. They even provide rides in a CJ-6 as an award prize.

*The are a lot of cockpit/sim owners in Texas.  :)
