With the annual Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) AirVenture Oshkosh fly-in convention around the corner, the organization has released the notice covering arrival and departure procedures for those flying to the show. EAA highlighted that the document features several changes this year starting with an official name change from a Notice to Air Missions (NOTAM) to a Notice by the FAA. Other changes include decommissioned VORs RFD and MBL, changes to several IFR routings and aircraft camping no longer being allowed at Appleton International Airport (ATW).
“The most essential information for any pilot flying to Oshkosh involves reading and thoroughly understanding the 2022 AirVenture Notice to ensure safe operations on arrival and departure,” said Sean Elliott, EAA vice president of advocacy and safety. “Although the designation may have been changed by the FAA, the document still states the official requirements and expectations for pilots. We also urge all pilots to log appropriate cross-country time prior to their trip to Oshkosh so they have the proficiency and confidence to fly safely.”
EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2022 will take place from July 25th through 31st at Wittman Regional Airport (OSH) in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. The associated Notice will be in effect from 12 p.m. CDT on Thursday, July 21, until 6 a.m. CDT on Monday, Aug. 1. EAA plans to host a webinar on June 22 at 7 p.m. Central Time regarding the changes to the 2022 Notice and flying to the event in general.
The 2022 AirVenture Oshkosh Notice can be downloaded on EAA’s website at https://www.eaa.org/airventure/eaa-fly-in-flying-to-oshkosh/eaa-airventure-oshkosh-notam.
What, no UK Flag flying above the sign?
All the stories have been told
Of kings and days of old
But there’s no England now.
The big question is – will anyone come, given this disastrous Biden economy and the cost of fuel? Maybe we will just all travel up there in our battery RVs, our battery airplanes and use solar panels for all our power needs? I had planned on attending but between the very high admission price and the cost of fuel, I’ve decided against. Looking forward to Triple Tree in September, much more relaxed and way less expensive.
Depends what you want:
– see airplanes (but what size?)
– socialize (could do at either I suppose, AVSIG used to gather at OSH)
– see offerings of parts and technology (one company in the NW US told me the huge proportion of sales that came from OSH, if limited on staff they’d skip Arlington WA up the road from them)
– learn about technology
– air show (you’ve probably seen many of those)
Choices in life.
Just had an email from deHC inviting me to visit their booth at Farnborough, but I don’t think they are offering flight tickets to there. :-o)
I was fortunate to make that show one year, by happenstance – unexpected business trip, connections to ‘chalets’.
I was able to visit OSH one year as I was working in the overall region, several hours drive away.
Arlington WA fly-in and more I’ve been to several times as I mostly live in that overall region, and can do other things in the area including visiting people and buying things.
(August 20-21 with camping available from 19th, 2022, look up Arlington SkyFest.
Many of the usual features including warbirds in the air, night movie and airshow Saturday, perhaps something Friday evening, additional activities for children and displays on other side of airport on Sunday, with shuttle bus.
Food via ‘food trucks’, dunno about sun shelter which was traditional open tents, is warm and dry in summer there.
Bring sandals for showers is good health practice. Mumble masks depends on local rules of the day, respect others.
Tickets by pre-pay only, by vehicle. Parking open except for preferred areas close to the action at high price. Airplane parking $20 including camping under wing.
But no mention of trade show or lectures, I guess there will be some educational kiosks somewhere as STE(A)M is in the promotional bumpf, ‘Young Eagle flights’.

Same reason we always show up: We’re nuts about flying and find a way.
I was until I saw airfare from Northern California was nearly $1000!!
There was a FOUR stop route option late at night for $748.
Uh-oh, here we go with Politics again. Please note that Inflation is world-wide, there are two (1.9, actually) Jobs for every single person seeking one and Joby has received Part 135 approval. Cheer up !
Watch out for s-turns.
The last time I was there was 2007. I drove. Thought I could get a deal on something. Radio, headset, etc. No deals were to be had. Staying the day and left.
