Video Examples

Below are "real world" examples of VFR flights to and from Oshkosh during AirVenture. The flights were made in EAA's Young Eagles GlaStar during AirVenture 2011.

Flying to Ripon

The Fisk VFR Arrival to Oshkosh starts at Ripon, Wisconsin. Here is an example of flying to Ripon.

Ripon to Fisk

The approach path follows the railroad tracks between the towns of Ripon and Fisk.

Fisk to Runway 9/27

Controllers at Fisk assign one of two possible approach paths to Oshkosh. This is an example of flying the railroad track route to runway 27.

Fisk to Runway 18/36

The other approach path that Fisk controllers can assign follows the East/West road (Fisk Avenue). Here is an example of flying that route to Runway 36L.

VFR Departure from Oshkosh

Here is an example of a VFR departure from AirVenture.

About the Videos

The pilots on these videos are the two volunteers responsible for producing the annual AirVenture NOTAM. During the "rest of the year," Rick Polete is the Air Traffic Manager at the FAA Evansville Indiana Air Traffic Control Tower and Fred Stadler is a volunteer pilot at EAA's Pioneer Airport in Oshkosh. They work together each year coordinating input from the various FAA and EAA groups that determine NOTAM procedures.

These videos were produced to supplement the instructions printed in the NOTAM. They made the flights during what they hoped would be a busy time for arrivals, mid-morning on AirVenture opening day.

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