SHEBOYGAN FALLS, WIS. – The Aviation Heritage Center of Wisconsin held its “wheels and wings” annual fly-in breakfast and root beer float extravaganza, Sunday, June 17, 2012 at Sheboygan County Memorial Airport. The event was very well attended with a crowd estimated at 20,000. Vintage aircraft, vintage cars and vintage farm tractors were the attraction, and root beer floats and strawberry sundaes were the dessert. EAA Chapter 766 hosted the event.
The Aviation Heritage Center of Wisconsin is a unique environment where visitors can experience the world of aviation. From educational and community programs and events to an aviation museum, library and laboratory, the facility represents all things aviation.
The Aviation Heritage Center began with the dream of a group of Sheboygan County EAA Chapter 766 members who wanted to have a place to share their passion with the community. The building opened in June 2005 and was funded by generous private donors who shared the vision to create a place for people of all levels of interest to experience the world of flight. It is their hope by providing the opportunity for local youth to come explore and learn about aviation “hands on,” that they will plant the seed for future pilots, scientists and engineers.
