EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019 Notice to Airmen (NOTAM)

Topic of the show: RH and AG discuss the EAA AirVenture NOTAM; specifically, arrival procedures. We want everyone flying to EAA AirVenture to thoroughly read the NOTAM and be familiar with the details. According to the EAA “The free 32-page booklet is an absolute must if you're flying an aircraft to Oshkosh. It outlines all arrival/departure procedures, radio frequencies, Wittman Regional Airport details, and much more. Although many of the procedures are similar to previous years, there are updates in nearly every area to enhance safety, efficiency, and convenience for the thousands of airplanes expected at The World's Greatest Aviation Celebration. The EAA AirVenture NOTAM is required reading and should be part of a pilot's pre-flight preparation.”

Fly safely and we will see you at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh!

A special thank you to Mike from The Flying and Life Podcast. Mike sat down with RH to give some commentary on the details of the AirVenture NOTAM since he has done the arrival procedures himself. RH and Mike discuss NTSB Major Fly-In Tips.

Timely Feedback:

1. PATRON India Mike sent in some great links for his bucket list. Jack Long: Check out his most recent circumnavigation.

How do you fancy working in this tower - a bit more remote than Triad!

This is one trip where you positively absolutely want to hear ATC say “call this number” as many of the checkins are over satellite phone.

2. JG sent in an Army question for AG.

3. RK sent in feedback about calling ready at a towered airport.

4. PATRON Romeo Whiskey sent in references about balloon transponders.

5. Papa Lima flew a Widgeon and we may go see it!

6. PATRON Delta Mike sent in ODP feedback.
