The NOTAM outlines procedures for different kinds of aircraft flying into Oshkosh and various nearby airports. While some aspects of flying in remain the same, there have been a number of changes made for 2018, including:
- KOSH taxiway bravo has been realigned, with resulting changes to aircraft parking and camping areas.
- The KOSH ground control frequency has been changed to 132.3
- Air show times have changed
- Descriptions of Seaplane Base procedures and the Transient Helicopter area have changed
- Madison approach control frequencies and airspace boundary altitudes have changed
- Two southern Wisconsin VORs have been decommissioned
- IFR routings and the list of airports requiring IFR reservations have changed
The EAA AirVenture NOTAM is required reading and should be part of a pilot's pre-flight preparation. Pilots can download the NOTAM or request a free printed copy at EAA.org/NOTAM.
