Depart Fisk following the railroad tracks northeast.
Enter the RIGHT BASE for Runways 18 L/R inside the gravel pit located approximately 1/2-mile northwest of Wittman Regional Airport.
The Control Tower will assign either Runway 18L or 18R.
Be prepared to change runways (Left vs Right) with little notice!
Maintain 1,800' msl until established on Right Base, THEN
DO NOT DESCEND BELOW 1,500' msl until south of Runway 27 on final to Runway/s 18L/R! THERE WILL BE AIRCRAFT DEPARTING AND ARRIVING RUNWAY 27 BELOW YOU!
This altitude restriction is necessary to protect aircraft departing and arriving (as well as for go-arounds) on Runway 27!
The controller may instruct you to land on the Blue Dot, the Pink Dot, "land long," or "land abeam the control tower."
The Blue Dot is located just south of the relocated threshold of Runway 18R, just abeam of the control tower. Remaining runway length from this point is 6,350'.
The Pink Dot is further down the runway, just north of Taxiway P3. Remaining runway length from the Pink Dot is 4,750'.
If you're instructed to land on Runway 18L, note that this temporary runway is 6,300' long, but only 50' wide. (It is normally a taxiway during non-AirVenture times.)
You may also see Yellow and Purple Dots on the departure end of Runway 18R. These are NOT to be used for Runway 18R arrivals.
Change of Plans
Be prepared! The control instructions may change from what you were initially told. For instance, you may have been instructed to "land on the Blue Dot." This would have been issued if there was another aircraft ahead of you landing at the Pink Dot, however by the time you reach the runway …
The other aircraft has exited the runway, therefore the controller may now instruct you to "land on the Pink Dot," which will allow for another aircraft to land behind you (on the Blue Dot) and still provide for allowable runway separation.
These last minute adjustments may occur no matter what runway you land on. The only difference will be the description of the touchdown point (Blue Dot or Pink Dot).
Stay alert for traffic ahead of you on final and also for any potential traffic that may be sequenced from the left (downwind or base) near the lake shore.
If a "Go-Around" is needed, NOTIFY ATC immediately for resequencing instructions!
See the Exiting Runways section for details on what is to be expected of you once you have landed.
