Exiting Runways & Parking

Exiting Runways

Now that you have landed at Oshkosh you need to understand where to promptly exit the runway. This final part of your arrival is just as important as the flight procedures - not only for your safety but for those working on the ground as well.

Exiting Runway 9

If you are piloting an aircraft that weighs less than 6,250 lbs, you will be expected to exit the runway (left or right as directed) without delay onto the sod. If the weight exceeds 6,250 lbs, exit the runway via the first available hard surfaced taxiway. 

Once you have landed, exit Runway 9 left or right as directed onto the sod.

DO NOT TURN BACK ONTO THE RUNWAY! 
There WILL be aircraft landing behind you.

Exiting Runway 27

If you are piloting an aircraft that weighs less than 6,250 lbs, you will be expected to exit the runway (left or right as directed) without delay onto the sod. If the weight exceeds 6,250 lbs, exit the runway via the first available hard surfaced taxiway.

Once you have landed, exit Runway 27 left or right as directed onto the sod.

DO NOT TURN BACK ONTO THE RUNWAY! 
There WILL be aircraft landing behind you.

Exiting Runway 18R

If you are piloting an aircraft that weighs less than 6,250 lbs, you will be expected to exit Runway 18R (to the right) onto the sod or paved taxiway. If the weight exceeds 6,250 lbs, exit the runway to the right via the first available hard surface taxiway.

Once you have landed, exit Runway 18R to the right as directed onto the sod or paved taxiway.

Expedite clearing the runway and
DO NOT TURN BACK ONTO THE RUNWAY! 
There WILL be aircraft landing behind you.

Exiting Runway 18L

All aircraft, regardless of weight, must exit Runway 18L to the right via the first available hard surface taxiway.

Once you have landed, exit Runway 18L to the right as directed onto the sod or paved taxiway.

Expedite clearing the runway and
DO NOT TURN BACK ONTO THE RUNWAY! 
There WILL be aircraft landing behind you.
HOLD SHORT OF RUNWAY 18R!

Do not cross Runway 18R until directed by a Tower Controller or an FAA Controller wearing a “pink shirt” located at the intersection of the taxiway and Runway 18R.

 

Exiting Runway 36L

If you are piloting an aircraft that weighs less than 6,250 lbs, you will be expected to exit Runway 36L (to the left) without delay onto the sod or paved taxiway. If the weight exceeds 6,250 lbs, exit the runway to the left via the first available hard surface taxiway.

Expedite clearing the runway and
DO NOT TURN BACK ONTO THE RUNWAY! 
There WILL be aircraft landing behind you.

Exiting Runway 36R

If you are assigned Runway 36R expect to be asked to land long and then taxi straight ahead to the end of the Runway. From the end of the Runway EAA flaggers will direct you to parking. Do not exit into the grass. Don't exit onto a taxiway unless instructed to by the controller. If you do exit onto a taxiway hold short of Runway 36L! The tower controller or a controller on the ground (in pink shirt) will advise you when you can cross Runway 36L. 

Expedite clearing the runway and
DO NOT TURN BACK ONTO THE RUNWAY! 
There WILL be aircraft landing behind you.
HOLD SHORT OF RUNWAY 36L!

Parking

Once you have cleared your arrival runway place the applicable “Parking” or “Camping” sign (as described in the NOTAM) in your windshield, and follow the volunteer EAA flag personnel, who will direct you to camping or parking.

Volunteers

During AirVenture all aircraft and vehicle movements, operating on other than the active runways, are directed by dozens of wonderful volunteers on the ground. While the Tower controls operations on the active runways, these ground crew volunteers coordinate all of the ground movement that takes place during AirVenture.

These volunteers are on the grounds before the airport opens to arrival operations each morning and stay until the airport closes each night through rain, shine, and summer heat. 

If you see one of these volunteers in their orange shirt or vest, give them not only the respect they deserve, but a “pat on the back” and thanks for the assistance they provide.

FUTURE AIRVENTURE DATES: 2014: July 28-Aug. 3; 2015: July 20-26; 2016: July 25-31; 2017: July 24-30
