IFEAA Airventure 2018 Hosted by The Aerosync Group [58 days remaining!] July 16-21

AirVenture-2018-Logo-0118a

So currently it is mid April, and the summer is fact approaching! For most of us, it brings us freedom to fly and enjoy Infinite flight the most by flying with friends and embracing the scenery of the globe within our fingertips.

Around mid-late July, one tiny city in Wisconsin USA get’s swarmed by all types of aircraft from across the globe for one week. The city is Oshkosh, and the residence of the town are welcoming to the roaring sounds of aircraft engines, from Wittman Regional Airport, as it is the host of the largest gathering of aircraft in the world. Airventure, hosted by the Experimental Aircraft Association, is a unique airshow/fly-in event that attracts over 10,000GA aircraft every year! With weekly day and night airshow performances, from both civilian to military performers, Oshkosh is the place to be if your an Avgeek!

Years have passed since Infinite Flight Live has been released, and it has given us the experience and the ability to make new friends and enjoy aviation together. And that exactly is the principle of EAA Airventure!

Now with the release of Global, we finally are gifted the ability to perform fly-ins from our local airports across the world. But the experience is best, when flying in a General Aviation aircraft. Like many others in real life, my friends and I are grouping together and flying into IFEAA18, and we are all looking forward to rocking our wings over FISKE, and landing on runway 27.

We are looking for general aviation/military/commercial pilots who are willing to study the NOTAM and follow realism procedures. We need support staff for our discord server, and most of all we need attendance!

We are looking for sponsorships with Virtual airlines and Organizations/clubs! If you are interested feel free to PM me!

MONDAY July 16th, 2018 :: VFR FISKE ARRIVAL EVENT

Monday July 16th, 2018

  • 1300-2300Z
    Casual Server (Vocal ATC on discord)

This procedure is to be used by all VFR aircraft landing at OSH from Friday, July 21, through Sunday, July 30, 2017 (except those using the Turbine/Warbird, Ultralight or NORDO arrivals). The procedure starts at Ripon, WI (15NM SW of Oshkosh) and requires visual navigation. Pilots follow a railroad track from Ripon to Fisk, WI. ATC at Fisk controls traffic flow and assigns OSH landing runways and approach paths (pages 8-12). Plan your fuel load carefully. If you do not have sufficient fuel for unexpected holding and possible landing go-arounds, divert to an alternate. If your fuel status is critical, notify ATC immediately.

Approaching Ripon
Ensure lights are on within 30 miles of OSH. All non-ADS-B equipped aircraft set transponder to Standby at or before Ripon. Obtain Arrival ATIS (125.9) no later than 15 miles from Ripon and note arrival runways in use. Have NOTAM arrival pages mentioned on ATIS available. Then monitor Fisk Approach (120.7). Arrive at Ripon at 90 knots and 1,800’. For aircraft unable to operate comfortablyat 90 knots:

 Slower aircraft should use maximum cruising speed. ATC recommends that you arrive at Fisk between 7:00-7:30 AM CDT daily, if practicable.
 Faster aircraft use 135 knots and 2,300’. GPS-equipped pilots may reference RIPON and FISKE intersections, but must visually navigate directly over the railroad tracks

Ripon to Fisk
If holding is not in progress, enter the VFR Arrival Procedure over the northeast corner of Ripon (OSH 232°, 15.5 DME). Proceed single file, directly over the railroad tracks from Ripon northeast to Fisk (10 miles). Remain at least ½ mile in-trail behind any aircraft you are following. Do not overtake another aircraft unless
authorized by ATC. Do not “S-turn” to follow an aircraft; instead, break off the procedure; return to Ripon; and follow another aircraft of similar speed. If possible, lower your landing gear prior to reaching Fisk. The small town of Pickett is about 4 miles from Fisk (you may see steam from the grain drying facility adjacent to the tracks). At this point, listen very carefully for ATC instructions directed at your aircraft.

At Fisk
Controllers will call your aircraft by color and type (if known). No verbal responses
are required. If you do not understand the ATC instructions, or need clarification,
request instructions on frequency. When you are in the immediate vicinity of
Fisk (less than 2 miles), ATC will issue a runway assignment, transition to the airport
and appropriate Tower frequency to monitor. Do not proceed beyond Fisk or change to Tower frequency without ATC authorization.

Fisk to Oshkosh
Transition instructions to the airport will either be “Follow the railroad tracks northeast”
or “Reaching Fisk, turn right and follow Fisk Avenue”.

Do not proceed beyond Fisk or change to tower frequency without ATC authorization.

Fisk to Oshkosh (continued)
Railroad Track Transition: Continue following the railroad tracks northeast from Fisk to Oshkosh. Fisk Avenue Transition: Fisk Avenue runs 090° from the town of Fisk. Do not confuse this road with Highway 44. A large microwave tower is located approximately one mile east of Fisk and ¼ mile south of Fisk Avenue. Navigate close to Fisk Ave. on south side, but remain north of the microwave tower. Pilots should be prepared for a combination of maneuvers that may include a short approach with descending turns, followed by touchdown at a point specified by ATC which may be almost halfway down the runway. Use extra caution to maintain a safe airspeed throughout the approach to landing.

Frequencies
Note that two separate ATC radio frequencies are used for each landing runway. As a result, landing pilots may see aircraft crossing the landing runway, but not hear ATC communications with those aircraft. Turn base prior to reaching shoreline.
Do not continue past shoreline unless
advised by ATC.
If a go-around is needed, notify ATC
immediately for resequencing instructions.
RWY 27 landing distances
Displaced Threshold…5,647’
Orange Dot…4,600’
Green Dot…3,050’

After landing and when speed permits, aircraft under 6,250 lbs. are required to exit
RWY 27 to the left or right, as directed, onto the sod. Do not turn back onto the runway. Follow aircraft ahead of you to ramp, if you are crossing an active runway do not request clearance, tower will clear you when available.

Flights of Aircraft
Some pilots travel together to AirVenture as a “flight”. Flights approaching Ripon should, traffic volume permitting, advise Fisk ATC (120.7) of position, identifying as a “flight of number and type aircraft. ”Flights that choose to maintain formation less than ½ mile in-trail are responsible for their own separation between members of the flight.
Although flight members generally want to remain together to the airport, this may not always be feasible. Make advance reconnection plans with all flight members in the event you become separated from one another upon arrival.

Holding
ATC controllers at Fisk will advise on 120.7 when holding is necessary. Aircraft at or beyond Ripon: Continue to Fisk and enter the Rush Lake holding pattern as depicted.
Aircraft approaching Ripon: Watch for traffic to follow and enter the hold at Green Lake as depicted.
Holding pattern saturation: If the Green Lake holding pattern is observed or reported to be nearing capacity, stay clear and proceed no further. Instead, make left turns over a point on the ground and continue to hold until ATC advises you to proceed or to transition into one of the published holding patterns. Holding Altitudes/Airspeeds: Maintain 90 knots (or maximum cruise speed if below 90 knots) and 1,800’ MSL. If unable, maintain 135 knots and 2,300’ MSL.

Good luck with this. This event always gets really hyped up, but with little turnout. I should know, I was in charge of it last year. The struggle was real.
