Getting Here is Half the Fun

You are cleared direct, so rock your wings and land on a colored dot.

Ultralight Runway Flight Schedule

Flight operations are broken into separate time periods to allow similar performance aircraft in the pattern at the same time. You should consider arriving to the Ultralight Runway during the time period your type is flying.

Light-sport aircraft, for the purpose of flight operations off the Ultralight Runway, include any aircraft with ultralight-like flight characteristics. Vintage, LSA aircraft, Cubs and Champs, and traditional homebuilt aircraft should use the main runway operations.

All two-place powered parachutes will operate with the one-place PPCs.

Homebuilt rotorcraft is defined as helicopters and gyrocopters that can safely operate off the Ultralight Runway.

Special considerations exist for Rotorcraft, and it is necessary to consult the NOTAM and rotorcraft flight operation volunteers for further instructions.

Adjustments to scheduled flight times will be made as appropriate for weather conditions.

Best Use of Time

The schedule above is a "best case" typical day of flying at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. Keep in mind that only pilots who have been briefed are allowed to participate in our flying segments.

New arrivals will be parked and will be able to fly in the daily sessions only after receiving a full briefing. Times for briefings are posted in the Ultralight Barn.

It is best to plan your arrival at AirVenture Oshkosh during the posted times in the NOTAM, then look to see when your vehicles timeslots are (as listed above) for the best blend of traffic during your arrival.

Remember the NOTAM requires that you call the Ultralight Barn prior to your arrival for current information. The field could be IFR or closed for "Special Circumstances". Always call ahead first. The Ultralight Barn phone number is published in the NOTAM.
