EAA Grounds Closed Next Week
July 16, 2020 – With the cancellation of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2020, aviators are reminded that the EAA grounds will remain closed to visitors and volunteers next week. Wittman Regional Airport will operate normally as a public-use airport with contract tower services. For those considering flying to Oshkosh next week, it's important to manage expectations and understand that there is no access to the EAA grounds or the public flightline areas typically used during AirVenture week.
- Aircraft parking for itinerant traffic is available on the terminal/Basler FBO ramp. No permit has been obtained for aircraft parking or camping on any turf areas of the airfield, and therefore it is not permitted. Those with business at year-round companies on the airport should check with those businesses for parking availability.
- No buildings or facilities on the AirVenture grounds will be open. Those attempting to camp will be asked to move to terminal/Basler FBO ramp parking or depart.
- The Warbird/Homebuilt camping areas near P-1 taxiway will not be open. Papa 2 taxiway (Boeing Plaza) will not be accessible.
- There will be no access to EAA facilities from the airport. EAA did not obtain a Wisconsin temporary campground permit for Camp Scholler in 2020, so it is illegal to accept or allow campers there this year. The EAA Aviation Museum also will be closed to the public until August 3.
For those who still want to fly to Oshkosh during AirVenture week, we encourage you to park at the terminal/Basler FBO ramp, stay at one of our local hotels, and enjoy some of Oshkosh’s hospitality. Please coordinate with Basler Flight Service to arrange any ground handling needs.
