The FAA has released the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016 Notice to Airmen (NOTAM), featuring arrival and departure procedures for EAA’s 64th annual fly-in convention July 25-31 at Wittman Regional Airport (KOSH) in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
The NOTAM, which is in effect 6am CDT on Friday, July 22, until noon CDT on August 1, outlines procedures for the many types of aircraft that fly to Oshkosh for the event, as well as aircraft that land at nearby airports. The NOTAM was designed by FAA to assist pilots in their EAA AirVenture flight planning.
While the overall procedure is similar to past years, there are some changes compared to the 2015 version. Some of those changes include:
- Frequencies for Departure ATIS and Runway 9/27 departures
- Taxiways north of OSH Runway 9/27
- Markings on OSH Runway 36R
- Notification requirement for aircraft over 12,500 pounds
- Internet URLs
- Advisory about separate arrival and departure frequencies
Pilots can acquire a digital version NOTAM by downloading it through the EAA AirVenture website. For a free printed copy, pilots can order online or call EAA Membership Services at 800-564-6322.
The EAA AirVenture NOTAM is required reading and should be part of every pilot's preflight preparation. Remember to print your arrival and departure signs before your trip and fly safe!
