Mass Type Arrivals Set For Oshkosh
Flying to EAA AirVenture is always an interesting experience but it's more fun with friends. The "mass arrival" pioneered by Bonanza owners in 1990 has now spread to (at least) three other type clubs. About 80 Bonanzas are expected to arrive about 3 p.m. on July 25, while 42 Mooneys will land at 4:40 p.m. Up to 30 Piper Comanches are scheduled for 11 a.m. on the 25th and a similar contingent of Stinsons will come in on Monday the 26th at 11 a.m. The mass landings have been in the planning works for months now but it might still be possible join in. All of the groups meet the day before their flight at an airport close to Oshkosh and enjoy a social evening. The Mooney group has limited participation to 42 aircraft for safety reasons. The FAA has also published mass-arrival procedures for the Bonanza group.
