In this week's episode of V1 Rotate, Sam Weigel takes us to one of the highlights of his year: EAA's AirVenture at Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Although the focus is on general aviation, Oshkosh is a big business that attracts players from all throughout the aviation industry. The opportunities to learn, network, and just have fun make Oshkosh a worthy destination for the new or aspiring professional pilot.

Sam Weigel has been an airplane nut since an early age, and when he's not flying the Boeing 737 for work, he enjoys going low and slow in vintage taildraggers. He and his wife live west of Seattle, where they are building an aviation homestead on a private 2,400-foot grass airstrip.
