VFR Arrival - Fisk Approach Control

ATC Home | VFR Arrival - Basics | Flights of Aircraft | Holding | Emergencies | Fisk Approach Control


Fisk is a temporary Air Traffic Control facility (consisting of nothing more than a small trailer with an awning) that is positioned on a hill north / northwest of Fisk, Wisconsin!

From this outdoor vantage point, utilizing binoculars and a radio the Fisk controller team uses their combined ATC experience to:

  • Locate you
  • Visually identify your type and possibly color
  • Quickly assess the sequence
  • Determine a plan (runway assignment and transition to airport)
  • Communicate instructions to you

This rapid sequence of events takes place over and over, to each aircraft heading for AirVenture.

As you approach Fisk (staying over the railroad tracks), you may see the Fisk ATC facility atop the hill. Please don't make finding this facility your first priority! Let's keep it safe!

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