Experimental Aircraft Association’s (EAA) AirVenture – an annual event highlighting historic and unique aircrafts in Oshkosh, Wisconsin – will operate propane-powered buses to transport visitors.

The buses, contracted from Kobussen Buses, also service the Oshkosh Area School District during the school year. About 25 percent of Kobussen Buses’ fleet is propane-powered.

“It was a natural fit to help out AirVenture’s transportation efforts by using local school buses during the summer down time,” says Dan Kobussen, vice president of Kobussen Buses. “These innovative propane buses reduce emissions and run on a domestically produced fuel.”

“Our district partners with EAA to provide students insight into the history and understanding of aeronautics,” says Susan Schnorr, executive director of business services for Oshkosh Area School District. “We are happy to share our technologically advanced propane buses for their annual event to show attendees that this technology is working for districts every day.”
