Default Oshkosh Arrival Enforcement

Quite a few folks have suggested no arrival plan will work until conformance with the NOTAM is enforced.

Well, after many meetings and much debate, all parties are in agreement. We are please to announce the EAF's black ops division will supply certain enforcement services. Beginning Friday 22 July (edit; the 19th, yeah, yeah, the 19th!), the EAF* will deploy its new COIN fighter to patrol the area in and around Ripon, Fisk, Green Lake, and Fond du Lac.

Airspeed compliance will be judged per the private pilot PTS, i.e. speed tolerance held within +10 / -0. Pilots who slow below 90 knots will receive ONE warning. Pilots who overrun the aircraft in front of them will be herded out of line and escorted to Milwaukee.

The EAF will adopt a zero tolerance policy for line jumpers. Pilots who break into the inbound stream will be subject to immediate sanction.

The EAF will also deploy a special intelligence team at the event. RV pilots reported to have flown the approach at 2300 and 135 will be strapped to a board and placed under one of the taps at the Social. The technique, known as "beer boarding", subjects the offender to a steadily dripping stream of suds, AND an excess of taunts and insults. The treatment will continue until the subject explains why they are special.

Default Yikes... Who knew....

Glad I saw this post. I was considering 2300 msl at 135kts since my first and only trip in 2017 had me behind a guy doing 60kts. I had to drop down 150 t keep eyes on him as I was lugging along, nose up, aft cg with all my camping gear in the back. The beer torture does not sound so bad, but the shaming....
