Default Any Deals At Oshkosh Aeromart


"Ebby" wrote in message
...
I'm going to Oshkosh this summer. My question for this group is this.

Are
there any deals at the aeromart or flymarket. I am building a Hatz tube

and
fabric biplane and was wondering if Oshkosh would be the time to "score" a
good deal. Do A&S or Wicks for example offer show specials? I have the
steel portion of the plane done. No wings or center section. What should I
buy?

The best deals (i.e. best values) I have seen at Oshkosh have been from
avionics dealers. The lowest prices I've seen have been from kit
manufacturers who are looking for cash flow so they can make next month's
payroll.

The flymart at Oshkosh is no longer the good place for deals on
"airplane stuff", with a few exceptions. For used stuff, the Aeromart
has lots of good things, and I think it fills the gap between the
missing flymarket stuff and the new from dealers items.

If you are looking to score material for your wings, this isn't the
place for it. On the other hand, if you are looking for tools,
insturments, hardware, etc, great! good deals to be found if you look
hard enough. Most vendors have some sort of show special on their
offerings.

The Aeromart is a great source for everything from wing ribs to boat
anchors.

Each year we decorate another three aviation theme suites almost entirely
with stuff found in the Aeromart!
