As you're planning your trip to Oshkosh, review these safety tips from the AOPA Air Safety Foundation, including notam information. Thousands of pilots will be flying in, so remember to stay alert and watch for other traffic. Once you're at Oshkosh, plan to spend some time at the AOPA Big Yellow Tent. You can check out AOPA's Catch-A-Cardinal; fly challenging scenarios set up by the AOPA Air Safety Foundation on Microsoft Flight Sim X; learn about AOPA Project Pilot and the Airport Support Network; and take care of all your membership needs. While you're at the tent and walking around the flight line, make sure you've got your camera on hand. Snap some pictures to enter in AOPA Pilot's General Aviation Photo Contest — submit them online before August 1.
