EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2024 Notice includes important procedure updates for pilots flying to Oshkosh

Document is required reading for Oshkosh-bound pilots

EAA

EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wisconsin — (May 15, 2024) — There are several important Federal Aviation Administration-approved changes in the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2024 Notice (commonly referred to as the Oshkosh NOTAM), featuring arrival and departure procedures for the Experimental Aircraft Association’s 71st fly-in convention on July 22-28 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh. These changes are based on pilot feedback and FAA review of arrival procedure recommendations.

The document is in effect from noon CDT on Thursday, July 18, until noon CDT on Monday, July 29, and outlines procedures for the many types of aircraft that fly to Oshkosh for the event, as well as aircraft that land at nearby airports. The Notice was designed by the FAA to assist pilots in their EAA AirVenture flight planning. It is now known as the Oshkosh Notice instead of a NOTAM because of a changed FAA internal procedure.

Some of the 2024 changes include:

  • A TFR will be in effect in MKE airspace on July 15-18.
  • A new Fisk holding procedure.
  • No FISK arrivals before 8 a.m. CDT on Thursday, July 25.

The ATC-assignable transition points approaching Oshkosh from the west that will ease holding and congestion will again be in effect in 2024. These points are at Endeavor Bridge, Puckaway Lake, and Green Lake. They will be announced on the arrival ATIS when ATC activates them at times of highest traffic flows.

“The most essential information for any pilot flying to Oshkosh involves reading and thoroughly understanding the 2024 AirVenture Notice to ensure safe operations on arrival and departure,” said Sean Elliott, EAA’s vice president of advocacy and safety. “This FAA Notice document states the official requirements and expectations for pilots. We also urge all pilots to log appropriate cross-country time prior to their trip to Oshkosh so they have the proficiency and confidence to fly safely.”

EAA is also hosting a webinar on June 19 at 7 p.m. CDT regarding flying to AirVenture 2024 and changes in this year’s Notice. Pilots are encouraged to participate to build their knowledge prior to their flights to Oshkosh.

Pilots can download a digital version of the Notice at EAA.org/NOTAM, or order a free printed copy via that website or by calling EAA Membership Services at 800-564-6322.
