Why do we charge a registration fee?

Our Cessnas 2 Oshkosh event was reborn in 2008 as the "labor of love" of three of us. In the years that followed, good friends have kindly joined us to help along the way. It is, and has always been a grassroots movements of Cessna pilots and owners who love to get together at least once a year to enjoy each other's company, while participating in the greatest aviation celebration in the world. We strive to produce the best event possible within our means. As we're sure you all know, putting together an event of this nature involves significant expenses. We couldn't afford to cover those expenses out of our own pockets. Therefore, beginning in 2009, we were forced to charge a registration fee to insure that our event would continue to be viable each year, for years to come. We're now in our 15th year, 13th since the rebirth, and although operating in a very austere way, we are not only viable, but strong and looking forward to many more years ahead.

Cessnas 2 Oshkosh does not profit from the registration fee, which covers only part of our operational costs. Examples of our expenses are the logo-embroidered shirt that each participant in the arrival, pilots and passengers, wear during the mass arrival flight, the catering of our BBQ dinner, the crew van used in Juneau and at Cessna Base Camp in Oshkosh, the rental fee of the storage facility in Oshkosh for our equipment, the website hosting and related expenses and the daily breakfasts at Cessna Base Camp. Increases in the cost of these operational expenses forced us to raise the registration fee in 2014 and again in 2016. These very moderate increases have helped us continue to meet our goal of keeping our event viable.

The registration fee in effect in 2020 is $65.00 per person 13 years or older. Children up to the age of 12 will not incur a registration fee.

You can trust us to use the funds generated by the registration fee in the most austere form.
