Welcome to Cessnas 2 Oshkosh 2021!

Updated April 24, 2021 17:15 EDT

If you are reading this, you are at the right place to find all the information necessary to participate in the premier Cessna event at AirVenture-Oshkosh 2021.

We are so grateful that you are well and we hope that those important to you are also healthy.

Yes, we are opening registration and beginning training for AirVenture-Oshkosh 2021. If there is not a clinic listed for your area, please be patient, clinic dates and times are sometimes in flux. Please know we will ensure that everyone is trained and ready for the arrival. We do ask that you have your flying skills brushed up so that you are ready to receive the training.

We have made a couple of major changes to the internal working of Cessnas 2 Oshkosh that will make it easier to accomplish our mission. We have incorporated as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization with the EAA Air Academy as our primary recipient of donations. As an organization, we wish to support the young pilots that will be back-filling as more "seasoned" pilots leave. We will have more details as they become available.

EAA has posted a message about what AirVenture-Oshkosh 2021 will look like this year. You can check for updates thru eaa.org/covid, but it looks like the AirVenture-Oshkosh 2021 will be a "GO" this year with some changes necessary to accommodate the elephant in the room. As an organization, we will also be taking reasonable precautions to ensure CDC compliance along with supporting the policies and procedures of EAA. More details to follow.

We have reserved a block of rooms for our pilots, relatives and friends in the recently renovated AmericInn by Wyndham Beaver Dam Hotel.

More information is available on our FAQ page.

Check-In at Juneau will end sharply at 11:00 AM CDT (UTC-5) and the mission briefing will begin promptly at 12:00 PM CDT (UTC-5) on the 24th of July, so please plan your trip accordingly and be on time.

We are incredibly excited to know that the Love of Aviation is alive and well and that AirVenture-Oshkosh 2021 is going to happen. We are looking forward to seeing each and every one of you at our regional clinics and Oshkosh.

Blue Skies!

To Fly Our 2021 Mass Arrival...

Updated April 06, 2021 20:17 EDT

...a pilot must register and pay the registration fee, participate in at least one formation flight training clinic in 2021, be on the ground and checked in at Dodge County Airport (KUNU) by 11:00 AM CDT on Saturday, July 24, 2021. 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 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 2021 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 alternative forms of registration and payment, contact us by email:



The absolute deadline to register to fly the Cessnas 2 Oshkosh Mass Arrival was the seventh Thursday before the mass arrival at midnight CDT (UTC-5). In 2021 the deadline was Thursday, June 10, 2021 11:59:59 PM CDT (UTC-5).

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

Our 2021 Safety Measures

Updated April 07, 2021 21:46 EDT

Undoubtedly, a major concern on everyone's mind is COVID-19 and how it will impact AirVenture-Oshkosh 2021 in general and the Cessnas 2 Oshkosh Mass Arrival specifically. Public health officials at the federal, state and local levels are constantly monitoring a situation that is best described as rapidly changing. It is very difficult to make predictions but the current consensus is that by the summer the situation will be under enough control to allow public events to take place, obviously exercising mitigation precautions.

As a group, Cessnas 2 Oshkosh has adopted as our policy to follow EAA's recommendations regarding our main event, and for our clinics, we have decided to follow the public health authority guidelines of each state, county and municipality in which the clinics take place. The basic safety measures are for now: wearing a face mask that covers the nose and mouth during the classroom, ramp and flight portions of the clinic, exercising physical distancing (6-feet between individuals) during the classroom portion of the clinic and encouraging frequent use of hand sanitizing when entering and leaving the classroom and each aircraft.

We also acknowledge that airports are under a federal order to require of every pilot and airport visitor the use of a face mask while on the ramp, a hangar or airport terminal facility. The TSA also issued a security directive effective February 1 implementing the federal mask mandate, which applies to some (but not all) airports and to all areas, including privately leased hangars and other private businesses, "in or on" those airports.

Cessnas 2 Oshkosh is not an enforcement agency, but we ask that you voluntarily follow these guidelines for the benefit of all our pilots, relatives and friends.

The FAA - Cessnas 2 Oshkosh 2021 LOA

Updated May 11, 2021 07:35 EDT

The FAA and Cessnas 2 Oshkosh have released the 2021 Letter of Agreement (LOA). The LOA describes in detail the procedures in effect to conduct our mass arrival into Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. There are very important changes in the 2021 LOA, including changes related to operation of ADS-B transponders during the mass arrival flight.

Cessnas 2 Oshkosh pilots must familiarize with this LOA and the FAA requires that PIC carry it in the cockpit during the mass arrival flight.

The EAA AirVenture-Oshkosh 2021 NOTAM

Updated April 27, 2021 13:27 EDT

2021 NOTAM

The FAA has released the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2021 Notice to Airmen (NOTAM). The NOTAM becomes effective at noon CDT on Thursday, July 22, and expires at 8 p.m. CDT on Sunday, August 1. There are important changes in the 2021 NOTAM.

  • Some of the changes include:
  • There are three new ATC-assignable transition points approaching Oshkosh from the west that will ease holding and congestion. These points are located at Endeavor Bridge, Puckaway Lake, and Green Lake. They will be announced on the arrival ATIS when ATC puts them into use at times of highest traffic flows.
  • Different start and ending dates for the NOTAM.

  • The temporary Runway 18L/36R at Oshkosh (KOSH) has been reconstructed and is now 60 feet wide.
  • Two VORs have been decommissioned (FAH and IKK).

EAA is hosting a webinar on June 23 at 7 p.m. regarding flying to AirVenture 2021 and changes in this year's NOTAM. Pilots are encouraged to participate in that webinar to build their knowledge prior to their flights to Oshkosh.

Cessnas 2 Oshkosh pilots must familiarize with this NOTAM and the FAA requires that PIC carry it in the cockpit during the mass arrival flight.
