If the blimp is flying around, you can bet that something important is happening on the ground. Celebrate Goodyear's 50 years at Oshkosh with a blimp ride over the EAA AirVenture grounds. Then to commemorate your experience, take home a "money can't buy keepsake."

Christened in 2018, The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.'s Wingfoot Three is the newest Goodyear blimp, completing a nearly decadelong transition of Goodyear's world-famous fleet to high-tech semi-rigid airships. At 246 feet long (nearly the length of a football field), Wingfoot Three will be one of the largest aircraft on the field and a full 54 feet longer than the Goodyear blimp America that first touched down in Oshkosh back in 1971. This once-in-a- lifetime flight for two will fly you over the EAA AirVenture grounds on Friday, July 30, where you can take in an aerial view of all the fun.

Included in the package is a one-of-a-kind helmet worn by air show performer Michael Goulian himself. The perfect keepsake for the Oshkosh/EAA aficionado, the helmet depicts significant milestones and people involved with AirVenture over the years. Before your Friday flight, meet and greet with Michael Goulian on the AirVenture grounds.

NOTE: An alternative date for the Goodyear blimp may be arranged for scheduling/weather purposes.

Donated By The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. and Michael Goulian
