The New Holstein Fly-In is a gathering of aviation enthusiasts of tailwheel and similarly capable aircraft, however, all aircraft types are welcome. The Fly-In is scheduled to compliment and coincide with EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin which is held in late July each year. 

The New Holstein Airport, 8D1, is approximately 40 road miles from Oshkosh. The smaller, less congested and more relaxed atmosphere at the New Holstein Airport allows gatherers to enjoy the benefits of the close proximity to KOSH, while at the same time allowing for small group fly-out excursions in the local area, picnic dining, camping and enjoying one another’s great company.   

The Fly-In wouldn’t be a success without the support from the New Holstein community. We THANK them for their involvement and support throughout the years! We also thank all the volunteers who make this a fun and safe event for all to enjoy!
