Proud Supporter of the      Aviation Explorer Base:

The Aviation Exploration Base located in Oshkosh, Wisconsin is the place where Explorers and Advisors gather each year to learn about aviation and volunteer for AirVenture. AirVenture is the largest airshow in the world!

Explorers and Advisors volunteer in several different areas of the convention including Hombuilt Aircraft Parking, Flightline Ops and Flightline Saftey. Extensive safety briefings are given to all volunteers, then you get to jump into action and help push/park Airplanes, keep crowd control at taxi intersections and perform ground control functions on the taxiways.

Explorers and Advisors camp outdoors. There are three meals per day served out of the camp kitchen prepared by staff and campers. 

The camp is staffed by a group of volunteers (mostly former Explorers) who provide training, aviation expertise, fun programming and food service expertise.    


The 2018 Aviation Exploration Camp will be open from Saturday July 21 and close on Saturday July 28. You are welcome to stay as a post until Sunday.  If you stay, you will be on your own for lunch and dinner on Saturday and you will be scheduled to work on the flight line on Saturday and possibly Sunday.


For future planning, the dates for Aviation Exploration Base Camp through 2020 are:

·         2018: July 21-28

·         2019: July 20-27    

·         2020: July 18-25
