Brief Description:

This seminar is geared toward anyone who wants to fly into Airventure in Oshkosh, WI. Whether you've never flow into Airventure, or have made the flight before, this seminar will focus on the basics of flying into and out of the event via the visual VFR procedures, and highlight some of the recent changes. It will also touch on the process for IFR arrivals and departures. There are now many online and video resources to help you understand the procedures, and many of those will be used to bring the new, 2022 written NOTICE (formerly called a NOTAM) to life.

Prior to attending a safety seminar please review and abide by current CDC, State and Local health guidelines.
