Please download and copy this WWII WEEKEND PILOT/AIRCRAFT PROCEDURES information page.
 

    ● Please request and take note of NOTAMS posted for the event from a FAA Flight Service Briefer.
 

   ● Arrive early (0700-0900) to avoid congestion, especially on Saturday.  Gates open at 0830.

 

 

 

 

 

  • Follow all ATIS instructions carefully. 
     

  • Review the airport layout diagram to become familiar with runway, taxiway and event parking diagrams.
     

  • In all probability you will be landing on runway 31.  Land so as to make a smooth deceleration to turn left onto Taxiway Delta.  Exit at taxiway Delta run-up area at the direction of the ground crews for parking on the run-up area and behind the tower.  (See Airport Diagram below.)
     

  • After landing, avoid a long, slow taxi down runway 31 to the turn off onto taxiway D, as this can really destroy the orderly flow of traffic.  Keep it moving.
     

  • Stay informed.  Things change, especially with current security concerns, etc.  

 

  • Bring your own tie-downs.  You will be directed to the transient parking area.  (see diagram below). After shutting down on a hard ramp your aircraft will be parked on grass. There are no tie-downs available so you will need something that will work in grass.

  • You will ride a shuttle bus directly to and from the event and admission will be collected on board.

  • See Show Tips for more information to help you enjoy the show.
