Brodhead 2021 -One month away

Builders,

The annual Pietenpol Gathering at Brodhead Wisconsin is just a month away. It is held the weekend before Oshkosh, 90 miles south east of air venture. It is the very definition of a grass roots aviation event, held at one of America great small airfields. I have only missed it twice in the last 26 years, and I will be there this year.

You need not be a Piet builder to attend Brodhead, but you might be when you leave. there will be many known Corvair / Pietenpol pilots on hand like Kevin Purtee, Randy Bush and Shad Bell. Come meet them in person, and get to know your mechanical brethren.

.

I do parking lot tour / engine inspections at both Oshkosh and Brodhead, but the logistics are a whole lot easier at Brodhead, as the parking lot is 35 feet from the forum hangar and there isn’t any chain link fencing anywhere at Brodhead. I’ll gladly look at your engine or core at either setting, so please bring it, it is a big part of why I travel 1,375 miles from Florida.

William
