EAA AirVenture 2007 NOTAM Now Available Via Online and Print Formats
EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wis. - (May 1, 2007) — The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has released the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2007 Notice to Airmen (NOTAM), featuring arrival and departure procedures for the Experimental Aircraft Association's 55th annual fly-in, The World's Greatest Aviation Celebration, July 23-29 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh.
The NOTAM, which is in effect July 20-29, outlines procedures for the many types of aircraft that fly to Oshkosh for the event, as well as aircraft that land at nearby airports. It was designed by FAA, in partnership with EAA, to assist pilots in their AirVenture flight planning. There are some noteworthy changes compared to the 2006 version. Those changes include a new AirVenture arrival ATIS frequency at 118.75; procedures beginning a day earlier, on Friday, July 20; a new helicopter landing area; changes in the IFR slot reservation confirmation process; and expanded Flight Service Briefing Annex hours.
A high influx of VFR arrivals is expected to begin at Oshkosh on Saturday and Sunday, July 21-22. Besides following the published arrival and departure procedures in the AirVenture NOTAM, pilots should maintain high vigilance in watching for other aircraft.
The online Adobe Acrobat (pdf) version of the NOTAM is available in the "Plan For It/Pilot Information" area of the EAA AirVenture website (www.airventure.org).
A 28-page printed NOTAM is available by calling EAA Membership Services at 800-564-6322 or through the EAA AirVenture web site. Additional hints and tips for pilots arriving at and departing from EAA AirVenture 2007 are available online at www.airventure.org/atc.
