    I think it really varies. In HBC, it was OK, if occasionally slow. On the other hand, on Tuesday evening, we were in Scholler on Stits, trying to pull up a map of the campgrounds to find some...

    You realize that (other than the tri-motor), EAA doesn't use its aircraft to give rides at Oshkosh. They give rides on the B-17 and B-25 from Appleton, IIRC.

    Cycling a warbird (worse - a big one...

    People talking loud, ports potty doors slamming all night, traffic on the perimeter road…

    Bring earplugs and sleep in ‘em. That’s what I’ve been doing for decades.

    I saw those too, and had the same reaction. I recognize they (the old cameras) were not a money maker, but they sure created pre-show excitement for the people who are hard core enthusiasts. Also,...

    My solution has always been to take my oldest, rattiest undies and socks, and put them in the trash at the end of the show. Same with the towel I use after the camp showers. If I need more of any...

    I thought the latest direction was that you would be OK if either the instructor or the airplane had the LODA?

    EAA, got any updates?

    The main HBC showers are at the West end beside the pavilion. Two trailers in recent years plus the one Todd mentioned at the South edge of HBC, across the drainage ditch from the "main" HBC parking...

    I bet they are uncomfortable asking people planning for 18R to tighten their turn and land on 18L. 36R allows the landing aircraft to widen its base/final turn or just sidestep.

    A) You're right. There is little new under the sun and EAA has ridden the Rutan and Van train for 40 years. I'm sure they would love to find a new "favorite" subject. I made that point in my first...

    Absolutely true. I used to buy a year or three of old SA's at the fly-market every year at Oshkosh or SnF. The magazine may not have looked as pretty 40 years ago, but there were lots of great...

    There have been a ton of questionable selections (IMO) over the years. The problem is that there's little new under the sun these days. EAA milked the Rutan designs for stories for 20+ years, and...

    No doubt. But I think the intent of the first post was a plea for information. Certainly EAA has enough info to share. e.g: "Here are the specifics of what we found. Here is our working plan. Here...

    Yes. But the issue with the arrival ATIS has always been that the transmitter isn't strong enough to push the signal more than 20 or so miles. So it is very possible that you fly a lot of extra...

    The additional transitions are only for times when the field is saturated. For normal conditions, the regular arrival is still used.

    But when the new transitions do go into effect - gonna be a...

    Yep. 3-4 merge points and a (potentially) longer 90 knot follow-the leader line. Plus a learning curve and the possibility of the merge point moving while you're inbound.

    What was the objective?...

    Sadly, the experimental world isn't what it once was with new designs coming out every year and excitement around all of 'em. I would argue that DarkAero is the only "exciting" new project that...

    In 30 years of attendance, the weather has been mostly 70%? Moderate and the other 30% has gone from the 30’s to the upper 90’s. I’ve been in hellacious t-storms and have been tornado warned.

    20 ish years ago, I flagged down an older gentleman at SnF to ask for directions to the helicopter flight line. Mr. Poberezny was kind enough to take the time to point me in the right direction.
