EAA Releases Oshkosh Notice for AirVenture 2024

Thursday, May 23, 2024 @ 8:00 AM

The Oshkosh Notice for AirVenture 2024 (commonly referred to as the Oshkosh NOTAM) has been released for EAA's annual fly-in convention to be held July 22-28 at Wittman Regional Airport (KOSH) in Oshkosh, WI.

The Notice, which is in effect from noon CDT on Thursday, July 18 until noon CDT on Monday, July 29, 2024, 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 Notice was designed by the 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 2023 version. Some of those changes include:

  • A TFR will be in effect in MKE airspace from July 15-18
  • A new Fisk holding procedure has been established
  • No FISK arrivals before 8am CDT on Thursday, July 25

The ATC-assignable transition points approaching Oshkosh from the west that will ease holding and congestion will again be in effect in 2024. These points are at Endeavor Bridge (VPENV), Puckaway Lake (VPPLK), and Green Lake (VPGRN). They will be announced on the arrival ATIS when ATC activates them at times of highest traffic flows.

Pilots can acquire a digital version of the Notice HERE or 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.

Please know this Notice does not supersede restrictions contained in other FDC NOTAMs, however it 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!

NBAA Introduces New International Flight Plan Format Guide

Wednesday, April 10, 2024 @ 8:00 AM

NBAA unveiled a tool at the 2024 NBAA International Operators Conference in Orlando, FL, to aid compliance with international flight planning requirements.

The "International Flight Plan Format Guide," developed by NBAA’s International Operators Committee, helps operators manage varied flight plan requirements from the FAA, ICAO, and other regulators. This guide, supported by major flight planning vendors, provides a standardized format to align on flight plan language and structure. Though optional, using this format simplifies the LOA application process and enhances international compliance.

NBAA collaborates with the FAA to gather feedback and improve the process continuously, addressing issues like incorrect equipment codes. This initiative aims to streamline operations and ensure industry-wide consistency.

Tuesday, June 6, 2023 @ 1:00 PM

The 2023 AirVenture Notice specifies sign codes used to inform ground personnel of your desired parking area at Wittman Regional Airport (KOSH).  You'll need to display one of these signs for your arrival and another for departure based on your aircraft type and parking or camping preference.

New for 2023 is the option for GAC and GAP arrivals to request either the North 40 or South 40 - but note these requests are NOT guaranteed.

Arrival Signs

Departure Signs

Please know this Notice does not supersede restrictions contained in other FDC NOTAMs, however it is required reading and should be part of every pilot's preflight preparation.

This year's arrival and departure signs are again produced in partnership with iFlightPlanner for AOPA, the powerful web interface for AOPA members to plan flights using hi-res charts and weather imagery, retrieve weather briefs, file flight plans, and much more!

Remember to print your arrival and departure signs before your trip and fly safe!

President Signs H.R. 346 to Enhance NOTAMs System

Saturday, June 3, 2023 @ 8:00 AM

UPDATE: On Saturday, June 3, 2023, the President signed into law H.R. 346, which requires the Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration to establish a task force to provide recommendations for improvement of Notices to Air Missions (NOTAMs).


May 23, 2023 — H.R. 346, the NOTAM Improvement Act of 2023, is a legislation aimed at enhancing the Notice to Air Missions (NOTAM) system for pilots submitted in response to the January 12, 2023 system crash.

The bill, which received near-unanimous Congressional approval, recognizes the current shortcomings of the system, which often presents information in a complex and cumbersome manner, leading to difficulties in understanding and accessing critical flight information.

The act mandates the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to modernize the NOTAM system by streamlining and digitizing its content, making it more user-friendly and easily accessible to pilots. The FAA is required to adopt a standardized format, simplify language, and utilize technology to improve the dissemination and retrieval of NOTAMs for flight planning resources such as iFlightPlanner and the Regulatory Compliant Weather Briefs it provides.

The objective is to enhance aviation safety by ensuring pilots have timely and comprehensible information to make informed decisions during flight operations.
