Federal Pavilion

During EAA AirVenture Oshkosh
Monday - Saturday: 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Sunday: 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

The International Federal Partnership returns to AirVenture for the 25rd consecutive appearance this year. Members of the IFP include the United States and the Islands of the Bahamas.  Rejoining the IFP this year are the working K-9s and members of U.S. Customs and Border Protection Field Operations. 

Exhibits will be in one of the coolest places on AirVenture grounds. Radar and weather monitoring, drones, interactive displays that include a Wright Flyer simulator, a vintage Fairchild aircraft once operated by the U.S. National Park Service and aircraft and vessels from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection are just some of the displays in the pavilion.

As always, many educational forums will be presented by the various government representatives. These forums include information regarding the various missions of each agency. Some of the forums will give FAA “Wings” credit for attendance.

One of the most significant events of the week for the IFP is hosting EAA's Make-A-Wish Day on Saturday, marking the 22th consecutive year of providing a fun-filled day for these very special children and their families. The day will include a flight in EAA's Bell 47 helicopter, a flight in the EAA Ford Tri-Motor. Ultralight flights and other exciting activities.

Bahamas Civil Aviation Authority:  Representatives from south of the border will be happy to answer questions regarding personal travel in Bahamas, including flight procedures, weather, customs, security requirements, airport information, NOTAMS and other flight information including general information about the Bahamas, flying to the Bahamas in private aircraft and additional pilot information. Please visit our display booth in the Federal Pavilion and we'll make your flight planning a very simple process and your trip to the Bahamas such an enjoyable experience that you'll want to come back many, many times.

Bird Strike Committee USA: Bird and other wildlife strikes to aircraft annually cause well over $700 million in damage to U.S. civil and military aviation. Furthermore, these strikes put the lives of aircraft crew members and their passengers at risk: over 250 people have been killed worldwide as a result of wildlife strikes since 1988. Within the United States there was no one forum where information or concerns dealing with this problem could be addressed. Bird Strike Committee USA was formed in 1991 to facilitate the exchange of information, promote the collection and analysis of accurate wildlife strike data, promote the development of new technologies for reducing wildlife hazards, promote professionalism in wildlife management programs on airports through training and advocacy of high standards of conduct for airport biologists and bird patrol personnel, and be a liaison to similar organizations in other countries.

National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB): The NTSB is the United States government's voice for transportation safety. It investigates all civil aviation accidents in the United States, examines significant rail, marine, highway and pipeline accidents, determines the probable cause of each accident, and issues safety recommendations that, if followed, prevent similar accidents from happening again. Since its establishment in 1967, the NTSB has investigated more than 140,000 aviation accidents and thousands of surface transportation accidents. It has issued over 13,400 safety recommendations based upon its investigations and conclusions. An impressive 83 percent of the recommendations have been implemented. The NTSB is also responsible for maintaining the government's official census of civil aviation accidents and conducts special studies of transportation safety issues of national significance. In addition, the NTSB provides investigators to serve as U.S. accredited representatives, as specified in international treaties, for aviation accidents overseas involving U.S.-registered aircraft or involving aircraft or major components of U.S. manufacture.  

The NTSB has also just launched a study of the Safety of Experimental Amateur Built (E-AB) Aircraft that will involve much more detailed investigations of E-AB accidents than have been possible in the past.  The study will also coordinate with an upcoming EAA survey to better understand the community of amateur builders and owners. For additional information about the NTSB and to access all of the NTSB accident reports, see our web site at www.ntsb.gov.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) is a United States and Canada bi-national organization charged with the missions of aerospace warning and aerospace control for North America. Aerospace warning includes the detection, validation, and warning of attack against North America whether by aircraft, missiles, or space vehicles, through mutual support arrangements with other commands. Discover the #1 reason general aviation aircraft are intercepted and how to avoid it.  In this action packed briefing you’ll learn practical steps to avoid Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs) and what to do if you are intercepted.  Join NORAD F-16 pilots in an informative and lively session that will keep you out of trouble, and off the evening news. 

NOAA is an agency that enriches life through science. Our reach goes from the surface of the sun to the depths of the ocean floor as we work to keep citizens informed of the changing environment around them.

From daily weather forecasts, severe storm warnings and climate monitoring to fisheries management, coastal restoration and supporting marine commerce, NOAA’s products and services support economic vitality and affect more than one-third of America’s gross domestic product. NOAA’s dedicated scientists use cutting-edge research and high-tech instrumentation to provide citizens, planners, emergency managers and other decision makers with reliable information they need when they need it. www.noaa.gov

NOAA/NWS: The NWS provides early warnings of dangerous weather and aviation weather information to the FAA's Flight Service Stations (AFSS) and Air Route Traffic Control Centers (ARTCC) for day-to-day pilot weather briefings.  Additionally, the NWS provides general weather, hydrological and climate forecasts and warnings for the United States, its territories, adjacent waters and ocean areas. www.weather.gov.

Royal Bahamas Police Force / Customs / Civil Aviation Authority: Flying to the Bahamas from the U.S. should not be daunting, if you ask Dennis Dames, Royal Bahamas Police Force, Assistant Superintendent and officer-in-charge of air support service for the Force. Dames and his aviation team will be on hand to answer attendee questions at The Islands Of The Bahamas Booth in the Federal Pavilion, at AirVenture. This year's Bahamas booth will also feature lots of great printed material, including customs and general declaration forms that pilots need for the trip. The Private Pilot Guide is particularly helpful and available at the booth for free. It contains phone numbers for Customs, FBO information, great ideas for places to stay, fly-in event information and more between its covers.

SeeAndAvoid.org: Originally created by the Air National Guard Aviation Safety Division, this portal is now funded by the Defense Safety Oversight Council and includes all military services. Our goal is to eliminate midair collisions and reduce close calls through continuous flight safety and proper flight planning. By promoting information exchange between civilian pilots and the military flight safety community, we hope to provide one-stop shopping to help all of us safely share the skies. This portal will allow users to find and link to all existing military Mid-Air Collision Avoidance (MACA) programs in a single web site, while also enjoying new access to information from bases that did not previously have web-based content.  Please stop by our booth in the Federal Pavilion.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Air and Marine Operations (AMO):  This integral component of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is charged with protecting the American people and critical infrastructure using an integrated and coordinated air and marine force to deter, interdict, and prevent acts of terrorism arising from unlawful movement of people and goods across the borders of the United States.  Our booth, aircraft and drones will be staffed by AMO personnel ready to discuss AMO's three core missions:  interdiction, law enforcement support and air domain security. Visit the website.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection – Field Operations:  Part of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the uniformed officers of this agency will be discussing the day-to-day operations of inspecting vehicles, cargo, and people as they enter the United States at airports, seaports, and land border ports.  We will once again be presenting information regarding general aviation clearance procedures, as well as provide canine drug detector dog presentations. Officers will be on hand to explain current customs clearance procedures and answer questions. Visit the websiteThe Electronic Advance Passenger Information System (eAPIS) is a user-friendly, web-based interface designed by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). This system is used by commercial carriers and the private aviation community to provide required information to CBP electronically.  Personnel from the aPIS group will be available to answer questions and assist flyers by walking them through the new electronic system. Visit the website.

The U.S. National Park Service (NPS): Most people know that the NPS, created nearly 100 years ago, cares for a network of almost 400 natural, cultural and recreational sites across the nation. The treasures in this system – the first of its kind in the world – have been set aside by the American people to preserve, protect and share the legacies of this land. The NPS operates a broad range of airplanes and helicopters, flying approximately 20,000 hours annually in support of the system. Throughout the week of AirVenture, NPS employees and volunteers will answer questions and present forums regarding aviation heritage at sites like the Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park and Wright Brothers National Memorial. They will also address concerns about access to the NPS system by land or air. We hope to see you soon in a national park and invite you to Experience Your America at www.nps.gov.
