Default Air Venture info needed

Going to Oshkosh for 1st time. Need info from experienced attendees. I'm staying with a friend in his RV at the warbirds campground area. I'm flying in and meeting him there. My question is where should I park my plane? I need to put desired parking spot on paper when landing for ground support. Warbird area, or GA area. BTW, I fly a Mooney. Thanks in advance for insight.

Default Read the NOTAM

Please make sure you read the NOTAM. As you said You will need to make a sign to designate where you will be parking. Your sign will say GAP. General Aviation Parking or GAC General aviation camping. Unless your airplane is old enough to qualify for vintage.

Enjoy the flight in and wait for the greatest words ever said by a controller "Welcome to Oshkosh"

I don't think they will allow you in the warbird area with a Mooney. You're looking for GAC (probably in the North 40).

Read the NOTAM many times already. (and will do so many more prior to trip)

I can't find anywhere if the Warbird parking area is restricted to Warbirds only, or simply a place to park based on your area of interest. Looking for clarity.

Page 1 of the NOTAM. Warbirds are considered show planes. If you are camping with your Mooney it will be GAC and if just parking it and camping/staying elsewhere it is GAP. Both GAP and GAC fill up quickly when the WX is nice so if arriving after Sunday be ready to divert.

Default Arrive Wednesday

Yes, plan on the North 40.

It will fill up by Monday. On Tuesday I bet they will not let you land unless you are already have a spot. There is always a large group that leaves Wednesday morning and afternoon. You should have no problem Wednesday. It always seems like that the aviators are there Sun - Wed and the Nascar fans show up on Thursday - Sun. Since I am both an aviator and Nascar fan I have to stay the whole week.
