Oshkosh 2021 NOTAM Includes Important Changes

Note: KOSH Air Traffic Procedures Are Required Reading For All Aviators Flying To AirVenture

There are several important FAA-approved changes in the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2021 Notice to Airmen (NOTAM), featuring arrival and departure procedures for the Experimental Aircraft Association's 68th fly-in convention July 26-August 1 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh.

These changes are based on pilot feedback and FAA review of arrival procedure recommendations. 

The NOTAM, which is in effect from noon CDT on Thursday, July 22, until 8 p.m. CDT on Sunday, August 1, 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 NOTAM was designed by the FAA to assist pilots in their EAA AirVenture flight planning.

"With AirVenture on hiatus last year, it is more crucial than ever to thoroughly read and understand the 2021 AirVenture NOTAM to ensure safe operations on arrival and departure for this year's event," said Sean Elliott, EAA's vice president of advocacy and safety.

"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 in conjunction with a thorough knowledge of this year's NOTAM."

Some of the 2021 changes include:

  • There are new ATC-assignable transition points approaching Oshkosh from the west that will ease holding and congestion. These points are at Endeavor Bridge, Puckaway Lake, and Green Lake. They will be announced on the arrival ATIS when ATC put them into use at times of highest traffic flows.
  • Different start and ending dates for the NOTAM.
  • The temporary Runway 18L/36R at Oshkosh (KOSH) has been reconstructed and is now 60 feet wide.
  • Two VORs have been decommissioned (FAH and IKK).
  • Numerous editorial changes

EAA is also hosting a webinar on June 23 at 7 p.m. regarding flying to AirVenture 2021 and changes in this year's NOTAM. Pilots are encouraged to participate in that webinar to build their knowledge prior to their flights to Oshkosh.
