To Fly Our 2020 Mass Arrival...

Updated February 08, 2020 15:02 EST

...a pilot must register and pay the registration fee, participate in at least one formation flight training clinic in 2020, be on the ground and checked in at Dodge County Airport (KUNU) by 11:00 AM CDT on Saturday, July 18, 2020. The participating PIC must also attend the mass arrival final preflight brief to be held in the main hangar of  Wisconsin Aviation in Juneau, Wisconsin starting promptly at 12:00 Noon CDT (UTC-5).

The registration process is simple, it starts by clicking on the Registration tab (the first from the right at the top of every page on the website) and answering a few straight forward 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 reviewing their information retrieved from our database and prefilled on the form. To do so, click on the link on our registration page, log in using the same email address and zip code that used in your most recent registration, check the prefilled form for errors, make any necessary corrections and change what needs to be updated. 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 2020 remains $65.00. 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 your preferred credit card.

For detailed information about the payment process, click here.

For alternative forms of payment or registration, contact us by email:



The absolute deadline to register to fly the Cessnas 2 Oshkosh Mass Arrival is the seventh Thursday before the mass arrival at midnight CDT (UTC-5). In 2020 the deadline is Thursday, June 4, 2020 11:59:59 PM CDT (UTC-5).

Nevertheless, you must be fully aware of the requirement to participate in at least one formation training clinic during 2020 to be able to fly the mass arrival. You must register while there is still a clinic on the 2020 schedule that you can attend to obtain formation flight training and meet this requirement.

Registered pilots have until this deadline to withdraw from participation in the mass arrival and obtain a refund of the registration fee. This is also our deadline to place the shirts order with our vendor.

Congratulations Cessnas 2 Oshkosh 2019!

On July 21st, the sunday before the start of EAA AirVenture 2019, Cessnas 2 Oshkosh conducted its 14th annual mass arrival into the Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

Congratulations to each and every one of our pilots! We accomplished our mission of flying our eighty-six (86) aircraft into Oshkosh in spite of all the challenges. Not only did we accomplished our mission, but we were actually one aircraft short of tying our 2018 record number of aircraft for the group.

Thanks to all our pilots, relatives and friends for persisting over the obstacles and making the 2019 Cessnas 2 Oshkosh Mass Arrival a tremendous success.

The eighty-six (86) aircraft in the 2019 Mass Arrival Flight were arranged in thirty-two (32) elements. Follow this link to view the composition of the mass arrival flight, element by element. Follow this link to view the full Final Mass Arrival Report.

We are excited to report that eighty-six (86) aircraft flew the 2019 Cessnas 2 Oshkosh Mass Arrival Flight. Eighteen (18) of the eighty-six (86) PIC flew the mass arrival for the first time in 2019. Our eighty-six (86) registered PIC brought with them seventy-four (74) passengers over the age of twelve (12) years and five (5) children under 12 years of age. We warmly welcome the new pilots and their passengers to our group and hope they had the most fun in the celebration at Cessna Base Camp and AirVenture. Thirty-nine (38) of the one-hundred-twenty-five (125) pilots who originally registered withdrew their registrations for different personal, family or work-related reasons, couldn't make it to Dodge County Airport in Juneau on time to participate in the flight or bailed out due to the postponement of the flight. Of these thirty-eight (38) pilots, several were able to join us later in Oshkosh and participated in the celebration. We missed the pilots who couldn't make it and hope that they will join us next year.

Twenty-seven (27) states, the District of Columbia and two (2) Canadian provinces were represented. Texas led the states with sixteen (16) aircraft, followed by Florida with six (6), California, Wisconsin and Virginia with five (5), Massachusetts and Washington with four (4), and Illinois, Maryland, North Carolina, and Ontario with three (3) aircraft each.

The Cardinal again led the models with thirty-one (31) aircraft, followed by the Skylane with twenty-one (21), the Skyhawk with seventeen (17), the Centurion with seven (7), the Stationair with three (3), the Skywagon and the Commuter with two (2), and the C170, the Skycatcher and the Skymaster with one aircraft each. Of the eighty-six (86) aircraft, fifty-three (53) had fixed landing gear and thirty-three (33) were equipped with retractable landing gear.

Needless to say, we are very happy with these results and would like to express our most sincere thanks to all of our pilots, relatives and friends for their support in 2019.
