As in almost every year in the past, we expect to depart runway 2 from Dodge County Airport (KUNU) and land on runways 36L and 36R at Wittman Regional Airport (KOSH) in Oshkosh, but we need to be prepared to take off from the runway favored by surface winds at launch time and land on any runway at Oshkosh. The departure and approach procedures, including contingency plans for a potential change of landing runway at OSH after takeoff from Juneau, will be briefed in detail on Saturday, July 24th starting at 12:00 Noon CDT.
The mass arrival flight waypoints are contained in files of different formats, including doc, docx, pdf, csv and fpl. You may choose to download the most convenient file for you. The doc and docx files are Microsoft® Word documents, from version 97-2003 to the current Office365 version. The pdf files can be read and displayed by most browsers, operating systems and readers such as Adobe®, Foxit® and others. The files are formatted in three columns depicting the name, latitude and longitude coordinates of each waypoint, and in rows listed in the order that the waypoints must be flown. The latitude and longitude coordinates are in the degrees minutes.decimal minutes format (DD MM.mm), i.e. 44° 24.10'. These files are intended to be used as a reference to manually program all the waypoints into your GPS units as user waypoints. The imported waypoints will appear in the user waypoints section of ForeFlight®. To plot the route you would select the sequence of waypoints as you would any route in ForeFlight®. We have not tested this procedure on other tablets or portable devices running other operating systems and software applications. Embarking in extensive testing of other available platforms is beyond our capabilities.
The csv (comma-separated-values) and the fpl (ForeFlight® flight plan) files are ready to batch import all the waypoints into ForeFlight® mobile and some Garmin® devices. The process will be explained further ahead. The latitude and longitude coordinates in the csv and fpl are in the degrees.decimal degrees format (DD.ddddd), i.e. 44.54321°. You will need the Apple iTunes® application to complete the upload. The procedure consists of copying the csv or fpl file to the ForeFlight® File Sharing section in the Apps tab of iTunes®. iTunes® will then synchronize with ForeFlight® and send the file to your iPad. The procedure is slightly different for each file format. Detailed step by step instructions for these procedure can be found following these links to the ForeFlight® website:
For csv files the link is: Import a CSV file into ForeFlight Mobile®.
For fpl files the link is: Import an FPL file into ForeFlight Mobile®.
An alternative method to import the waypoints into ForeFlight® mobile using the fpl file (ForeFlight® flight plan file) is to email the file to yourself, opening the email using the email client in your iPad and downloading the attached fpl file directly to ForeFlight®. mobile
The imported waypoints will appear in the user waypoints section of ForeFlight® and the completely traced route will appear on the moving map of ForeFlight®. We have not tested these procedures on other tablets or portable devices running other operating systems and software applications. As previously mentioned, embarking in extensive testing of other available platforms is beyond our capabilities.
These files contain all the waypoints to be imported into ForeFlight® and Garmin® devices, including the UNU Rwy 20 takeoff, the OSH Rwy 18 approach and landing and the main flight route waypoints.
* Warning: Some older version browsers will download this file with a .txt extension. If necessary change the file name to C2O_Waypoints.fpl during download using the "Save As..." option from your browser's File menu.
