Hello Lee,

We will be treating Osh Kosh as it would be in the real world. From class d procedures to all of the approach types into the airport!

With any luck, we'll be there by then.  Wonder how well it'll run on the laptop to fly it again online :-)

Obviously not changeable, so just verbalizing aloud.  Why is this an evening/night event?  If any event should be a daytime event, it's this one simply based on the visuals alone.  I realize one can still capture some daylight early in the event, but just seems strange, especially when offering it on a weekend.

yeah thats my question, so the IRL 2017 NOTAM serves as the NOTAM for this event?

I agree it should have been a day event. By NOTAM the airport is actually closed at these times.

Simple solution to "Rock your wings"....Put it in the ATIS they should be pulling before FISK "Rock your wings = IDENT"

There is a really good marked scenery for Oshkosh with runway color markings here.  You have to register but it is free to download.

Hope that helps someone

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

my questions have been answered. someone should make a scenry that allows for the NOTAM to be fully valid in my opinion. :p
