included on the AirVenture arrival ATIS on frequency 125.9 and via

Runway 9 (straight-in entry)
- Depart Fisk following the railroad
- Join the Final Approach Course for
- Unless otherwise directed, passing
Fisk "monitor tower" on frequency 118.5
- Unless ATC advises otherwise, you may
begin your descent for the airport upon passing overhead Fisk.
- Be Alert! IFR aircraft may be inbound
"Straight-In" and via the Left Downwind to Runway 9!
- ATC may request that you land on a
large White Dot painted on the runway. This allows for
simultaneous arrivals and expedites the flow of traffic.
- The White Dot is located
1,828' from the Runway 9 threshold. Remaining runway length from this
point is 4,350'.
- You may also see
Green and Orange Dots on the departure end of
Runway 9. These are NOT to be used for Runway 9 arrivals.
Be prepared! The control
instructions may change from what you were initially told. For instance,
you may have been instructed to "land on the numbers". This
would have been issued if there was another aircraft ahead of you landing
at the White Dot, however by the time you reach the runway…
The other aircraft has exited
the runway, therefore the controller may now instruct you to "land on
the White Dot" which will allow for another aircraft to land behind
you (on the numbers) and still provide for allowable runway separation.
These last minute adjustments
may occur no matter what runway you land on. The only difference will be
the description of the touchdown point ("the numbers" or
Stay alert for traffic ahead
of you on final and also for any potential traffic that may be sequenced
from the left (downwind or base) near the gravel pit.
"Go-Around" is needed, NOTIFY ATC immediately for resequencing
See the Exiting
Runways section for details on what is to be expected of you
once you have landed.
