    Parking Sequence for GAC aircraft

    Does anyone know what parking sequence EAA uses for arriving aircraft during the first segments (days)? Which areas "fill up" first? Is there a difference in aircraft landing on 27 or 36L&R as far as parking concerns there?

    Thanks,

    Speaking very generally and probably not covering the finer points, if you want GAC, that’s along the south side of 9-27. GAC usually fills east to west with a few exceptions like the Bonanza mass arrival (Cessna, Pipers as well) just so they can all camp together. Doesn’t matter if you land on 8-36; just a longer taxi. Make sure you have LEGIBLE parking signs so the volunteers can see where you want to go. Follow the notam. Can’t tell you how many times I had to stop a plane, walk up to it, just to see a person holding a sign written in ballpoint.

    There is a slight change this year IAW the NOTAM: “GAP and GAC may place an additional sign with N or S to request North 40 or South 40. THESE REQUESTS ARE NOT GUARANTEED.”

    If you’re a GA camper I would recommend going to the North 40. The South 40 is a relatively new area and is pretty spartan and way south. The Blue Line tram also tends to get hammered and getting a ride south can be vexing. Last year the area was mostly GA parking. Hopefully EAA will see fit to start putting in more infrastructure to make the South 40 more appealing.
