EAA AirVenture Fly-in Notam Is Available

For pilots planning to fly into EAA AirVenture (July 26-August 1), the 32-page official FAA Notam is must reading, and an integral element of your flight planning. The notam contains all the arrival/departure procedures, radio frequencies, airport details, parking information and more. If you're an AirVenture veteran with years' worth of visits in your logbook, you might find a critical update from the procedures of past events. You can request a printed version of the Notam here; or download the 1.9MB PDF file here. A wealth of other Oshkosh information is also available at www.airventure.org including airline discounts for those who don't want to fly themselves; special offers (such as fuel discounts) for pilots from FBOs en route; ultralight arrival procedures; and regular updates on parking status. There is also a spot to provide direct feedback to the FAA on AirVenture procedures, should you have a suggestion to improve the process. And there is an online primer for Oshkosh pilots consisting of advice from veteran controllers at what is for one week, the world's busiest airport.
