| 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
- Locate you
- Visually identify your type and possibly
- 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!
