As spring turns to summer and we enter the final stretch of our 2018 annual mass arrival preparation, we pause to express our most felt appreciation to the more than eighty (80) returning pilots who have registered to fly the mass arrival again this year and together with them we extend our warm welcome to the more than twenty-eight (28) first-time pilots who are joining us in 2018. This en masse response has been extraordinary and unprecedented. We anticipate a great mass arrival and an even greater celebration at Cessna BaseCamp in Oshkosh.

Talking about a great mass arrival, our emphasis now shifts to training for safety. We expect that each of our pilots focus on training to meet our safety standards. Meeting the training requirement to fly the mass arrival is mandatory, there are no exceptions or workarounds. At this point in time every registered pilot who plans to fly the mass arrival should have participated in one of our clinics, or be signed up to participate in one of the clinics remaining on the schedule.

Now, as we go through the summer, weather becomes an increasingly critical factor on whether a clinic takes place or not. Postponement and rescheduling of clinics is very often inevitable. We urge our pilots to be flexible with their personal schedules and to consider flying longer than usual distances to reach a training location to avoid delays in completing training or missing it altogether.

We are counting on each and every one of you to make the 2018 mass arrival flight a memorable one. See you in Juneau soon!

To Fly Our 2018 Mass Arrival...

Updated May 30, 2018 11:34 EDT

...a pilot must register and pay the registration fee, participate in at least one formation flight training clinic in 2018, be on the ground at Dodge County Airport (KUNU) by 11:00 AM CDT on Saturday, July 21, 2018 to check in, and attend the mass arrival final preflight brief. The preflight brief is held in the main hangar of  Wisconsin Aviation in Juneau, Wisconsin and starts promptly at 12:00 Noon CDT (UTC-5).

The registration process is simple: starts by clicking on the Registration tab (the first from the right at the top of every page) and answering a few questions about yourself, your passenger(s) and your aircraft. Pilots who have registered to fly the mass arrival in the past, whether they flew the arrival or not, can save some time by retrieving their information from our database. To do so, click on the link on our registration page, log in using the same email address and zip code that you used in the most recent registration, check the prefilled form for errors and make any necessary corrections and changes. In 2017 we added two questions regarding engine horsepower and type of landing gear. Once you are done, submit the updated form.

The final step in the registration process is paying the registration fee. The fee covers the cost of the polo shirt embroidered with our logo, the Friday dinner and the Saturday lunch at Juneau, and the BBQ dinner at Cessna Base Camp in Oshkosh. Our registration fee in 2018 remains $65.00 for registrations completed by the deadline of June 14. The late registration fee remains $75.00. Children up to 12 years of age will not incur a fee. We use Paypal® to process the registration fee payment. You are not required to have a Paypal® account. The process is simple and intuitive. You can pay using your Paypal® account, if you have one, or the major credit card of your preference.
