July Oshkosh Visitors Should Note Airport Operation Rules
June 18, 2020 – We're all disappointed with the cancellation of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2020, as it means so many different things for everyone who attends. For thousands of aviators, flying to Wittman Regional Airport (KOSH) is a highlight in the logbook.
As AirVenture 2020 is not taking place, Wittman Regional Airport will operate normally as a public-use airport with contract tower services. For those considering flying to Oshkosh in late July, it's important to manage expectations about what is permissible:
- 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 through July.
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.
