One of the most popular precursors to EAA AirVenture is the mass arrival of aircraft groups to Oshkosh's Wittman Regional Airport. Arriving en masse allows kindred aircraft to set up group camping areas in the North 40, which would be logistically impossible if they arrived separately.

The mass arrivals begin this year on Friday, July 20, when as many as 50 participants in the Cherokees to Oshkosh group are scheduled to arrive starting at 1 p.m.

That paves the way for three group arrivals Saturday, July 21:

  • Bonanzas to Oshkosh - as many as 100 aircraft, arriving at 1 p.m.
  • Cessnas to Oshkosh - 75 aircraft, 2:30 p.m.
  • The 15th Mooney Caravan - 39 aircraft, 4 p.m.

On Sunday, July 22, as many as 75 Piper Cubs are scheduled to arrive together at 6:30 a.m. as a part of the 75th anniversary celebration of the Cub this year. All told, more than 200 Cubs are expected to attend. Also Sunday, up to 40 Van's RVs are scheduled to arrive beginning at 1:30 p.m.

Those not flying in the mass arrivals should note that this schedule is subject to change, and may be affected by the weather.
