Structurally, Payne's original design is an engineering tour d' force, in its approach to lightness.

Event Reports - EAA AirVenture 2004

We're heading up to Wisconsin!

Article by Steen Staff
The Steen crew has loaded all the stuff on the truck and packed up the RV and we're about to head out! We're eagerly anticipating this show... the aviation industry has been making a good recovery since 2001, and with the long-awaited Sport Pilot rule having been released just last week (finally!), we expect this AirVenture to be especially significant. We think that the interest in all forms of "fun" flying will continue to accelerate quickly. Hang on, it's going to be a fun ride!

We are looking forward to seeing many old friends again, and making a lot of new friends as well. Our booth will be in the same location as last year (between the main gate and Paul's Park) and we would love to see you! Both the Yellowbird Skybolt and the Pitts Model 14 will be at the tent, and there are always many fine examples of Skybolts, Pitts Specials, and Great Lakes out on the flight line... and maybe even a Knight Twister. If you can't make it in person, then keep checking this page as we plan to take lots of photos and make updates on a regular basis.

Until the next report, fly safe, read your NOTAMs, and stay tuned!
