    Default AirVenture NOTAM Route addition

    Please watch this video before AirVenture. Iím not sure what this change will gain other than lots of confusion at the last minute around these transition points, but I hope word gets out and people can identify these landmarks without confusion or being too far off-course. A railroad is much easier to track single file than over a swamp in my opinion. If the video doesnít work for you, itís on EAA.ORG and in the 2021 NOTAM.

    It lengthens the conga line giving the RV’s more time to passes us overhead and drop down in front of us.
    Coming up on Fisk in 2018 an RV did exactly that to me, not once-five different times. The controller at Fisk saw it happen finally.

    “RV APPROACHING FISK RETURN TO RIPON. RED HIGH WING TAIL DRAGGER CLEARED TO RUNWAY 36 MONITOR TOWER 126.6”
    . Woohoo finally.

    That was my 5th trip from Ripon to Fisk only to be cutoff be an RV and sent back to Ripon. They wanted 1 mile separation but with the RV’s coming over the top and crowding in that was not possible so they sent all of us back to Ripon with the admonition to maintain 1 mile in trail. The issue is the limited number of RV parking spaces in their reserved field and they all want to get there at every one else’s expense. The NOTAM this year calls for 1/2 mile in trail.
    Be careful out there and be sure you understand the NOTAM.
