We are very pleased to report that fifty-three (53) aircraft participated in the 2017 Cessnas 2 Oshkosh Mass Arrival Flight.

Six (6) of the fifty-three (53) pilots flew the Cessnas 2 Oshkosh Mass Arrival for the first time in 2017. We warmly welcome all of our new pilots and their passengers to our group and wish they had the most fun during the week of celebration at Cessna Base Camp and AirVenture. Eleven (11) pilots withdrew from participation for different personal, family or work related reasons. We missed them and hope that they will join us next year. Twenty (20) pilots were not able to reach Dodge County Airport (KUNU), our staging base, due to adverse weather conditions en route. Some of these pilots eventually arrived in Oshkosh and joined us at Cessna Base Camp. Three (3) pilots participated in the mass arrival flight as passengers due to mechanical or technical problems with their aircraft.

Twenty-six (26) states and one (1) Canadian province were represented. Texas led the states with seven (7) aircraft, followed by Washington with five (5), oridaMassachusetts with four (4), Colorado, Florida and North Carolina with three (3) aircraft each, California, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, New York and Virginia with two (2) aircraft each, and twelve (12) other states and Ontario with one (1) aircraft each.

The Cardinal (C177) again led the models with twenty-one (21) aircraft, followed by the Skylane (C182) with thirteen (13), the Skyhawk (C172) with ten (10), the Centurion (C210) with five (5), the Stationair (C206) with two (2), and the Skywagon (C185) and the Skymaster (C337) with one (1) aircraft each.

Needless to say, we are very pleased with these results and would like to express our most sincere thanks to all our pilots, relatives and friends for their support and contribution to the success of the 2017 Cessnas 2 Oshkosh Mass Arrival.
