EAA has made several changes to the Oshkosh arrival and departure procedures, and published them in the new AirVenture NOTAM. The special procedures will be in effect from noon CDT Thursday, July 22 to 8 p.m. on Sunday August 1. Pilots can also attend a free webinar June 23 at 7 p.m. regarding flying to AirVenture 2021.
- There are new ATC-assignable transition points approaching Oshkosh from the west that will ease holding and congestion. These points are at Endeavor Bridge, Puckaway Lake, and Green Lake. They will be announced on the arrival ATIS when ATC puts them into use at times of highest traffic flows.
- Different start and ending dates for the NOTAM.
- The temporary Runway 18L/36R at Oshkosh (KOSH) has been reconstructed and is now 60 feet wide.
- Two VORs have been decommissioned (FAH and IKK).
- Numerous editorial changes
“With AirVenture on hiatus last year, it is more crucial than ever to thoroughly read and understand the 2021 AirVenture NOTAM to ensure safe operations on arrival and departure for this year’s event,” said Sean Elliott, EAA’s vice president of advocacy and safety. “We also urge all pilots to log appropriate cross country time prior to their trip to Oshkosh so they have the proficiency and confidence to fly safely in conjunction with a thorough knowledge of this year’s NOTAM.”
