TBMOPA and Daher at AirVenture

Live the ‘Oshkosh Experience’ with us!


EAA AirVenture, known worldwide as Oshkosh, by the place in Wisconsin where it is held every year, is the World's greatest aviation event. It gathers every year everything that flies: Classic planes, warbirds, vintage or experimental aircraft, ultralights, seaplanes, helicopters,
autogiros, hot air balloons, etc. You name it; there's likely an example of it at Oshkosh. For a pilot, arriving at Oshkosh is a rite of passage that can only be satisfied by being one of the more than 10,000 aircraft landings at what is during a week the busiest airport in the

Daher and TBMOPA are excited to partner again for the 20th year to invite all owners of Daher’s aircraft to visit the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh this year. EAA AirVenture is a gigantic pageant, and our Oshkosh invitation is very special due to Daher’s and TBMOPA’s close relationship with the EAA. As a result, TBMOPA members can access the “hidden side of Oshkosh” and benefit from a host of amenities.

Ramp Parking – Daher and TBMOPA can offer aircraft owners dedicated hard surface parking at Oshkosh in front of the old Oshkosh "commercial terminal." This gives members direct access to rental cars and fuel etc. We will have dedicated transport that will
be able to take you to the show or the VIP campground when you arrive and when you need to depart. It takes a lot of negotiation every year to get a dedicated parking area (which every other GA manufacturer tries to get their hands on); however, as a TBMOPA member, only you can access it.

IFR Slots – TBMOPA members benefit from access to “golden” IFR slots in Oshkosh daily between 7 am and 1 pm.  This will allow you to arrive IFR and avoid any traffic issues. The golden slots are allocated directly by the EAA. If you prefer to arrive VFR, you can use the “Warbird” arrival, which keeps you away from slower traffic. This year you can book your parking and slot requests online. Click on the "Register" button at the top of this page to begin.

Accommodation – The best place to stay at Oshkosh is at the campground. TBMOPA has pre-booked several VIP RVs near the showgrounds to create the “TBM village.” Trailers have A/C, running water, plumbing, etc., and are an ideal way to get the best out of the show. They are available on a first-come, first-served basis for TBM owners. 

2023 Daher and TBMOPA Special Events

Daher’s Aviators barbecue - As in previous years, Daher organizes his traditional barbecue
at its booth (main aircraft display south of the Boeing Plaza – booth #387-392) on Wednesday, July 26th at 6 PM. Before the dinner, an award ceremony is held to recognize leading members of the Daher’s aviator community.

The Gathering – On Thursday, July 27th, evening, Daher is a contributor to “The Gathering,” a prestigious fundraising gala dinner concluded by an auction to collect funds for the EAA Young Eagles program.

TBM village dinners – TBMOPA will host nightly dinners for all TBMOPA Members. Located at the “TBMOPA village," its professional chef will create fun and casual dishes for you. This is your opportunity to mingle with other owners and Daher experts.  Daher enjoys inviting the TBMOPA community to their booth inside the show for refreshments, goodies, education, and camaraderie every year. 

If you have never been to Oshkosh and own a Daher aircraft, this is the year to come.  If you are a regular, be sure there will be new people to meet and exciting features to discover!
