Welcome to Aero-TV's Daily Update from EAA AirVenture Oshkosh for Thursday, July 31st, 2008. 2008 has already been a year filled with innovation in the cockpit. Avidyne chose AirVenture to show off its new Enhanced Vision and Synthetic Vision upgrades for its Entegra system, now featuring 15-inch displays. Garmin has been waiting for FAA approval to turn its G600 avionics system loose in the retrofit market. At AirVenture, the company was able to announce approval to install the system in 785 different aircraft makes and models. In a celebration of its homebuilding roots, EAA honored a Van's RV-9A as the 30-thousandth amateur-built aircraft to be registered with the FAA. The lucky builder, Bill Noll of Yuma, Arizona, had flown the plane to Oshkosh with his 17-year-old daughter, Katrina. One of the most anticipated forums of any AirVenture is called "Meet The Administrator." On Thursday, FAA Acting Administrator Robert Sturgell faced an audience full of general aviation pilots. Tomorrow, Aero TV will show you how EAA is honoring women in aviation through a program being called "WomenVenture." We'll also catch up with the pilot of the Goodyear Blimp. Join us tomorrow, for the next ediiton of the Aero-TV Daily Update from EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. FMI: www.aero-tv.net
