Preflight Planning

For one week each year, EAA AirVenture Oshkosh has the highest concentration of aircraft in the world. Your careful reading and adherence to the procedures in this NOTAM are essential to maintaining the safety record of this event. Flight planning should include thorough familiarity with NOTAM procedures, as well as knowledge of primary and alternate airports. Keep a copy of this NOTAM available for in-flight reference.

Planning your Alternate Airport

OSH Flight Planning

Beginning Thursday, July 22, 2021, OSH is closed to all arriving aircraft from 8:00 PM until 7:00 AM CDT daily. Also, some or all categories of aircraft may not be accepted due to parking saturation, ground conditions, TFRs, scheduled airshows, or other activities.

OSH Airshow Demonstration Area/TFRs

The Airshow Demonstration Area and Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs) are within a 5 NM radius of Wittman Regional Airport from the surface to 16,000’ MSL. TFR information will be posted at tfr.faa.gov.

2021 Oshkosh Airshow/TFR Times (CDT)

Monday, July 26, thru Saturday, July 31: 2:30- 6:30 PM

NIGHT SHOW Wednesday, July 28: 8:00-10:00 PM

NIGHT SHOW Saturday, July 31: 8:00-10:00 PM

Sunday, August 1: 1:00- 4:30 PM

Wittman Regional Airport will be closed via Class D NOTAMs and all aircraft must remain clear of the Airshow Demonstration Area and the TFRs when they are active.

Check the Arrival ATIS (125.9) to determine when the airport is reopened. OSH arrivals are normally resumed 30 minutes after each afternoon airshow.

VFR Route Planning Guide

The VFR arrival to Oshkosh starts at the ATC designated Transition to the City of Ripon, Wisconsin (Chicago sectional chart). These four graphics show sample routes that bypass high- density airports enroute to and leaving the AirVenture area. Be sure to use current charts. Use extra caution for heavy traffic.

Check NOTAMs for large Military Operations Areas (MOAs) in west central Wisconsin.

Fisk VFR Arrival to OSH

General Information

This procedure is to be used by all VFR aircraft landing at OSH from Thursday, July 22 at Noon CDT through Sunday, August 1, 2021 (except those using the Turbine/Warbird, Ultralight or NORDO arrivals).

The procedure starts by using one of the ATC designated Transitions to Ripon, WI (15NM SW of OSH), requires visual navigation, and can be supplemented by VFR Waypoints. Pilots then follow a railroad track from Ripon to Fisk, WI. ATC at Fisk controls traffic flow and assigns OSH landing runways and approach paths (see FISK VFR ARRIVAL TO OSH section).

Planning

Plan your arrival to avoid airport closure periods, such as the daily airshows (listed under PREFLIGHT PLANNING). Arrivals normally resume 30 minutes after daytime airshows. Allow ample time to arrive and park before the daily airport closure at 8 PM CDT.

Plan your fuel load carefully. If you do not have sufficient fuel for unexpected holding and possible landing go-arounds, divert to an alternate. If your fuel status is critical, notify ATC immediately.

First, fly the aircraft. If you are not comfortable with the OSH AirVenture procedures, please consider flying into FLD or ATW and taking public transportation to OSH.

Approaching Transition Starting Point

Ensure lights are on within 50 miles of OSH. Leave transponder on throughout approach.

Tune to Arrival ATIS (125.9) no later than 60 miles from OSH Airport and note arrival runways in use. Have the FISK VFR ARRIVAL TO OSH NOTAM sections available. Then monitor Fisk Approach (120.7).

Arrive at Transition Starting Point at 90 knots and 1,800’. For aircraft unable to operate comfortably at 90 knots:

Transitions

Begin the procedure at the ATC designated Transition starting point. ATC will advertise the transition starting point on the Arrival ATIS however real time changes may be made on FISK Approach Frequency. Pick out an aircraft of similar type and speed to follow. Remain at least ½ mile in-trail behind the aircraft you are following. Do not fly side by side unless you are a flight. Do not overtake another aircraft. Do not “S-turn” to follow another aircraft, instead break off the procedure and proceed to the starting point and follow another aircraft of similar speed.

FISK VFR Arrival Transitions

Endeavor Bridge Transition

This Transition starts at the city of Endeavor, WI (47 miles SW of OSH) and is used during extremely high volumes of traffic. This transition has a VFR Waypoint (VPENV= 434503N/892856W) and is located over the junction of Interstate 39 and railroad tracks north of the city. Proceed from this point to the SW corner of Puckaway Lake, then the SW corner of Green Lake, then Ripon, then Fisk via the railroad tracks. There are few visual reference points on this transition between Endeavor and Puckaway Lake. A 095° track for 11 miles is a good reference.

FISK VFR Arrival, Endeavor Bridge Transition

Puckaway Lake Transition

This Transition starts at the SW corner of Puckaway Lake, WI (36 miles SW of OSH) and has a VFR Waypoint (VPPLK= 434425N/891329W). Proceed from this point to the SW corner of Green Lake keeping the shoreline of Puckaway Lake off your left, then to Ripon, then to Fisk via the railroad tracks. Maintaining appropriate in-trail spacing will improve the likelihood of continuing inbound on the procedure later.

FISK VFR Arrival, Puckaway Lake Transition

Green Lake Transition

This Transition starts at the SW corner of Green Lake, WI (26 NM SW of OSH). This Transition has a VFR Waypoint (VPGRN = 434608N/890250W). Proceed single file from the SW corner of Green Lake to the city of Ripon (RIPON= 435017N/885040W) then Fisk, WI via the railroad tracks. Remain ½ mile in- trail of the aircraft you are following.

FISK VFR Arrival, Green Lake Transition

Ripon to Fisk

If holding is not in progress, proceed to the northeast corner of Ripon (OSH 232°, 15.5 DME).

Proceed single file, directly over the railroad tracks from Ripon northeast to Fisk (10 miles). Remain at least ½ mile in-trail behind any aircraft you are following. Do not overtake another aircraft unless authorized by ATC.

Do not “S-turn” to follow an aircraft; instead, break off the procedure; proceed to the starting point; and follow another aircraft of similar speed.

Pilots may reference Ripon and Fisk VFR Waypoints, VPRIP and VPFIS. All aircraft must visually navigate directly over the railroad tracks from Ripon to Fisk.

If possible, lower your landing gear prior to reaching Fisk.

The small town of Pickett is about 4 miles from Fisk (steam from the grain drying facility). After this point, listen very carefully for ATC instructions directed at your aircraft.

Ripon

FISK VFR Arrival, Ripon overview

At Fisk

Controllers will call your aircraft by color and type (if known). No verbal responses are required. If you do not understand the ATC instructions, or need clarification, request instructions on frequency.

When you are in the immediate vicinity of Fisk (less than 2 miles), ATC will issue a runway assignment, transition to the airport and appropriate Tower frequency to monitor. Do not proceed beyond Fisk or change to Tower frequency without ATC authorization.

Fisk to Oshkosh

Runway assignments for the airport will include either “Follow the railroad tracks northeast” or “Reaching Fisk, turn right and follow east/west road (Fisk Ave.)”.

FISK VFR Arrival, Fisk to Oshkosh overview

Railroad Track Transition

Continue following the railroad tracks northeast from Fisk to Oshkosh.

Fisk Avenue Transition

Fisk Avenue runs 090° from the town of Fisk. Do not confuse this road with Highway 44.

A large microwave tower is located approximately one mile east of Fisk and ¼ mile south of Fisk Avenue. Navigate close to Fisk Ave, on the south side, but remain north of the microwave tower.

Landing Approach at Oshkosh

A waiver has been issued reducing arrival and departure separation standards for category 1 and 2 aircraft (primarily single-engine and light twin- engine aircraft).

Pilots should be prepared for a combination of maneuvers that may include a short approach with descending turns, followed by touchdown at a point specified by ATC which may be almost halfway down the runway. Use extra caution to maintain a safe airspeed throughout the approach to landing.

Arrivals and Departures on Separate ATC Frequencies

Note that two separate ATC radio frequencies are used for each landing runway – departures on one frequency and arrivals on a separate frequency.

As a result, landing pilots may see aircraft departing from or crossing the landing runway, but not hear ATC communications with those aircraft.

Flights of Aircraft

Some pilots travel together to AirVenture as a “flight”. Flights approaching Ripon should, traffic volume permitting, advise Fisk ATC (120.7) of position, identifying as a “flight of number and type aircraft”.

Flights that choose to maintain formation less than ½ mile in-trail are responsible for their own separation between members of the flight.

Although flight members generally want to remain together to the airport, this may not always be feasible. Make advance reconnection plans with all flight members in the event you become separated from one another upon arrival.

Large Formation Arrivals

To increase efficiency and safety of traffic arriving at Wittman Regional Airport, several large groups of similar- performance aircraft have been approved to make formation arrivals. Participation in these arrivals is limited to aircraft registered in each group and requires an FAA letter of authorization.

These formation arrivals are scheduled for late morning through mid-afternoon on Saturday, July 24, and for early morning on Sunday, July 25. Weather and other factors may change the schedule. Traffic using the Fisk VFR arrival to Oshkosh can expect delays during these large formation arrivals.

Fisk Holding

Holding

ATC controllers at Fisk will advise on 120.7 when holding is necessary.

Aircraft at or beyond Ripon: Continue to Fisk and enter the Rush Lake holding pattern as depicted.

Aircraft approaching Ripon on the Green Lake Transition: Watch for traffic to follow and enter the hold at Green Lake as depicted.

Aircraft approaching Green Lake on the Puckaway Lake Transition: Watch for traffic to follow and enter the hold at Puckaway Lake: Counter-clockwise starting at the SW corner.

Holding pattern saturation: If the Green Lake/Puckaway Lake holding patterns are observed or reported to be nearing capacity, stay clear and proceed no further. Instead, make left turns over a point on the ground and continue to hold until ATC advises you to proceed or to transition into one of the published holding patterns.

Holding Altitudes/Airspeeds: Maintain 90 knots (or maximum cruise speed if below 90 knots) and 1,800’ MSL. If unable, maintain 135 knots and 2,300’ MSL.

Clearing Holding Patterns

When ATC advises aircraft to depart a specific holding pattern, those aircraft shall transition to the arrival procedure in the following manner:

Fond du Lac Diversion Procedure

This procedure will be used if ATC determines that aircraft intending to land at Oshkosh should be diverted to Fond du Lac (FLD), such as when OSH is expected to be closed for an extended period. This procedure is to be used only when directed by ATC.

ATC will make a best effort to expedite return to Oshkosh when conditions permit.

If Fisk ATC directs you for this procedure:

Fond du Lac diversion route map

Recovery to Oshkosh

Aircraft that used the procedure above and intend to return to Oshkosh will be directed to a separate parking area at FLD for expedited handling when conditions permit. This return procedure will only be used for those diverted aircraft ready to depart within a designated timeframe.

FLD Tower will issue specific departure instructions to these aircraft. They will proceed northbound along the railroad tracks and monitor Oshkosh Tower (126.6) when three miles south of OSH for runway assignment and possible frequency change.

Airborne IFR Clearance Pickup after VFR Departure

Aircraft departing VFR from Oshkosh area airports must use the following procedures in order to pick up IFR clearances when airborne. Note that Milwaukee Approach Control will not issue airborne IFR clearances within 100 NM of OSH.

Airborne pickup of IFR clearances may be received from the ATC facilities listed below. Flight plans must specify the appropriate pickup point within the facility’s airspace; otherwise the facility will not be able to access your flight plan and may not issue an IFR clearance.

Madison Approach Control / Chicago Center

File from Dells VOR (DLL). Your filed route must avoid Chicago Approach Control airspace (see graphic airspace diagram above) with initial routing from table below.

When over Dells VOR request IFR clearance based on your current altitude as follows:
