AirVenture ’23 Recap!
What a week. Over 677,000 people (and 10,000 airplanes) attended AirVenture in Oshkosh, WI this past July. The Goulian Airshows team was there to work with its sponsor, Whelen Aerospace Technologies (“WAT” – you know, those awesome lights on the Cirrus you fly), and also to support our very own Mike Goulian with his airshow performance. We had time to visit with a group of our wonderful MGAV pilot customers and instructors who visited our hospitality area with a great view of the airshow.
We love having the opportunity for the Mike Goulian Aviation and Mike Goulian Airshows worlds to collide at events like AirVenture, so this was a very special week for us! Among two outstanding night airshows, getting to see new and old friends, lots of laughs, food and flying, there is no better way to spend AirVenture! Talk about the #CirrusLife!
We would LOVE to see more of our customers enjoy the pilgrimage to AirVenture Oshkosh next year. It’s an event that simply needs to be experienced to be believed. We’re already planning for 2024 so if you think you might have an interest in joining our MGAV team in Oshkosh ’24, just let Ben Acker know. Until next year OSH…
Meet the Goulian Aerosports Team – who all work out of KPYM! From left to right:
Kevin Kotce (Tractor-Trailer Driver), Ryan Tierney (Ferry Pilot & MGAV Upset Training Instructor), Hannah Smith (A&P Mechanic), Danika Bedrick (Team Coordinator), Karin Goulian, Max Mortell (Cirrus Regional Sales Director), Levi Fischer (A&P Mechanic & MGAV Director of Maintenance) and Steve Fiegel (Ferry Pilot and MGAV Upset Training Pilot)

Meet Nina Gorina, KBED Ambassador & Customer Service Representative
Nina, a marketing professional with a rich history of global travel, moved to the US in 2022. She started her private pilot training in New England in September, joining Mike Goulian Aviation in March of 2023.
Nina’s aspiration is to transition into commercial piloting with Med Flight. She has already begun to realize this dream, having recently completed her first solo cross-country flight.
With a career spanning across advertising agencies to IT development teams, and now aviation, Nina is poised to bring her diverse experiences to her new journey in aviation. As someone who has always embraced challenges and pursued her passions, she is excited about her future with MGAV and we are excited to have Nina as part of our team.
