On July 21st, the Saturday before the start of EAA AirVenture 2018, Cessnas 2 Oshkosh conducted its 13th annual mass arrival into the Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

Congratulations to each and every one of our pilots! We accomplished our mission of flying our eighty-seven (87) planes into Oshkosh in spite of all the challenges. Not only did we accomplished our mission, but we actually set a record for the group.

Thanks to all our pilots, relatives and friends for making the 2018 Cessnas 2 Oshkosh Mass Arrival a great success.

We are excited to report that eighty-seven (87) aircraft flew the 2018 Cessnas 2 Oshkosh Mass Arrival Flight. Fifteen (15) of the eighty-seven 87 PIC flew the mass arrival for the first time in 2018. Our eighty-seven 87 registered PIC brought with them seventy-three 73 passengers over the age of twelve (12) years and five (5) children under 12 years of age. We warmly welcome the new pilots and their passengers to our group and hope they had the most fun in the celebration at Cessna Base Camp and AirVenture. Thirty-eight (38) of the one-hundred-twenty-five (125) pilots who originally registered withdrew their registrations for different personal, family or work-related reasons or couldn't make it to Dodge County Airport in Juneau on time to participate in the flight. Of these thirty-eight (38) pilots, several were able to join us in Oshkosh and participated in the celebration. We missed the pilots who couldn't make it and hope that they will join us next year.

Twenty-eight (28) states, the District of Columbia and two (2) Canadian provinces were represented. Texas led the states with fifteen (15) aircraft, followed by Florida with eight (8) and Washington with six (6) aircraft. Massachusetts and Virginia had four (4) aircraft each.

The Cardinal again led the models with thirty-three (33) aircraft, followed by the Skylane with twenty-five (25), the Skyhawk with twelve (12) and the Centurion with eight (8). Of the eighty-seven (87) aircraft, fifty-six (56) had fixed landing gear and thirty-one (31) were equipped with retractable landing gear.

Needless to say, we are elated with these results and would like to express our most sincere thanks to all of our pilots, relatives and friends for their support in 2018.
