EAA AirVenture Oshkosh RSS FeedDon’t fly ‘naked’

August 2, 2009 - Oshkosh, Wisconsin  - The military operating airspace (MOA) that some pilots leaving AirVenture to the west may encounter is the Volk Field MOA. The proximity of military and civilian flights means pilots must remain vigilant to “see and avoid.”

Lt. Col. Ned Linch, an F-16 pilot, has been flying his RV to AirVenture for several years to promote www.SeeAndAvoid.org, a website depicting detailed information on all MOAs and other SUA in the United States. His bumper stickers read, “Don’t Fly Naked.”

“Without adequate preparation, you’re basically flying naked,” he said. “Make sure to squawk, turn your lights and strobes on, and communicate.”

We’ve reached the end of another memorable AirVenture; fly home safely. DON’T FLY NAKED!
