EAA AirVenture 2015 NOTAM Now Available For Download
Special air traffic procedures required reading for all aviators flying to Oshkosh
April 21, 2015 – The FAA has released the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2015 Notice to Airmen (NOTAM), featuring arrival and departure procedures for EAA’s 63rd annual fly-in convention July 20-26 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh.
The NOTAM, which is in effect 6 a.m. CDT July 17 to noon CDT July 27, 2015, outlines procedures for the many types of aircraft that fly to Oshkosh for the event, as well as aircraft that land at nearby airports.
This year’s NOTAM cover features a photo of a ground volunteer directing taxiing aircraft at Wittman Regional Airport. The NOTAM was designed by FAA, in partnership with EAA, to assist pilots in their EAA AirVenture flight planning.
While the overall procedure is similar to past years, there are some changes compared to the 2014 version. Some of those changes include:
- MOA active in central Wisconsin
- TFRs near Milwaukee, July 25-26
- Fisk VFR arrival description
- Communication frequency updates
- IFR departure routings
Download a PDF version of the NOTAM or request a free printed copy by calling EAA Membership Services at 800-564-6322. (Online ordering will be available soon.) Printed copies will be mailed after the FAA completes printing the NOTAM, which is anticipated in May.
