Hundreds of gorgeous airplanes are displayed at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh each year in hopes of winning a “Lindy Award.” Only a handful of owners come away with such honors, however. The Lindy Award is reserved for the best of the best!
Awards are presented across six categories: Homebuilts, Warbirds, Vintage, Ultralights, Seaplanes, and Rotorcraft. Entrants can only be considered for one category in a given year and are not eligible for the same or any lower-tier awards if they have won in the past.
Looks are considered in award judging, but the quality of craftsmanship inherent in the aircraft is a crucial factor as well. Careful construction and/or restoration, as well as tireless maintenance, is essential in winning a Lindy.
EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2021 was held July 26 – August 1.
Congratulations to all the 2021 award winners!
