Visit Sporty's at AirVenture Oshkosh

Sporty's Tent

Sporty’s tent will provide a unique and interactive Oshkosh shopping experience for attendees. Located outside Hangar B in Outdoor Space #260, Sporty’s will set up its Oshkosh retail store chock-full of products to see and try and buy, from headsets and flight bags to t-shirts and flight training courses.

“A popular feature of Sporty’s tent is our headset demo area,” says Sporty’s Vice President John Zimmerman. “We’ve expanded the headset experience this year with both Bose and Lightspeed having on-site company representatives to demo their headsets and to answer shoppers’ questions. And you can always get honest opinions from the pilots at Sporty's."

Sporty's tent will also feature an area dedicated to ADS-B, both the latest portable receivers and a wide variety of options for equipping with ADS-B Out. With the 2020 deadline less than six months away, this is the place to get all your questions answered and make the right decision.

“For us, AirVenture is like a family reunion where we see our long-time customers and meet the new ones,” says Zimmerman. “Our customers are active pilots and aircraft owners and that makes them experts as well, so we welcome the feedback we get at Oshkosh.
