Oshkosh, WI – In an unprecedented move sure to shock aviators everywhere, the EAA has announced its decision to cancel this year’s AirVenture due to the ongoing crisis at the Canadian border.
Citing serious safety concerns with Canadians entering the country legally and being polite and respectful to everyone, EAA spokesperson – preferring to stay anonymous due to fears of backlash, said on Sunday, “The crisis is escalating and it’s our duty to protect American aviators.”
Canadian pilot, Sheila Morris, sipping a nice, hot cup of tea and kindly offering me some, expressed gentle disappointment in the EAA’s decision.
“Eh, I’m sure he means well,” she said with a smile warm enough to melt the Arctic. “I’d really like to invite him over for a home-cooked meal and discuss. My door is always open!”
According to sources, Morris meant that literally. No one in Canada closes their doors.
The EAA said they are unable to refund tickets and are planning to donate all proceeds to construction of the U.S./Canadian border privacy hedge.
