Lets Pilots Know What To Expect When Flying Into AirVenture In July
The FAA has released the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2012 Notice to Airmen (NOTAM), available now for download from the agency. The NOTAM, which is in effect from 6 a.m. Friday, July 20, through noon on Monday, July 30, outlines procedures for the many types of aircraft that fly to Oshkosh for the event, as well as aircraft that land and depart at nearby airports. It was designed by FAA in partnership with EAA to assist pilots in their flight planning and is required reading if you're flying your aircraft to AirVenture.
While the overall procedure is similar to past years, there are some noteworthy changes compared to the 2011 version. Some of those changes include:
- Revised IFR arrival and departure routings
- Sheboygan added to IFR Special Traffic Management Program
- Revised VFR arrival procedures on pages 9-10
- Updated airport information and telephone numbers
The free copy of NOTAM is available to order or download, or by calling EAA Membership Services at 800-564-6322. Additional hints and tips for pilots arriving at and departing from EAA AirVenture 2012 are also available.
This year's NOTAM cover photo features a bright yellow Piper J-3 Cub in honor of the airplane's 75th anniversary. EAA has several activities planned to honor the Cub this year, including a group arrival, special parking for Cubs, and numerous presentations throughout the week.
