Osh Kosh cannot be closed per VATSIM guidelines. As Ryan put it, out of respect (CoC A.1) for their group, we ask that you park up on the grass and enjoy the show, just as pilots in the real world would do. If you would like to fly into the airport during that time, that's your decision to interrupt the hard work of your fellow pilots and members of the community.

Events / Re: vZAU presents: VatVenture 2017!
« on: July 23, 2017, 12:42:08 pm »
I understand all points being made. I agree with that it should be a day time event, which will be taken into consideration next year. IN response to Lee, Osh Kosh will be treated as a class D airport throughout this event, so that part of the NOTAM will not be valid, but we will be doing our best to have aircraft follow the specific arrivals into Osh Kosh, if they are capable.

Otherwise, it is obviously impossible for controllers to see aircraft 'rock their wings', and most sceneries do not depict the tracks or many of the other reporting points. In this case, pilots will be asked to Ident over FISK with the FISK approach controller, then be instructed to follow the appropriate transition that controller gives. They will then be instructed to change to the appropriate tower controller.

Aircraft may put the color of their aircraft in the remarks section of their flight plan, to be indentified by that, otherwise, the FISK controller will simply use the callsign of the aircraft as a default.

If you have anymore questions about the procedures of flying into Osh Kosh this evening, please feel free to post below, and I will try to answer ASAP, or send me an email: datm@zauartcc.org

Hope to see you this evening,

Jakob
