CT Pilot needs help

Recommended Posts

Dear CT-Pilots,

 

I'm a german CTLS-Pilot and I plan to fly from Europe to USA and visit Oshkosh 2016. I urgently need personel contact to Flight-Design USA.

Does anyone of you have a direct contact or a phone-number?

 

The other thing is to organise my visit at oshkosh. What do I have to organise in advance?

 

Best regards from Nuremberg, Bavaria, Germany

Markus

I can only give you the main number. 1-860-963-7272 . Email is also a good option (fstar@rcn.com)

 

You'll want to consult the FAA "Entering, Exiting and Flying in United States Airspace" page here (if you intend to fly your own aircraft here).

 

You'll need a visitors visa and your country's' passport. Get started on the visa stuff now, this process takes time.

If your German, and your post indicates that you are, then your in the "Visa Waiver" program, and you need no visa to visit the U.S. for up to 90 days.  You'll still have to go through Passport Control, but that should be no issue.

 

Contact the Oshkosh Visitors Center (http://www.visitoshkosh.com/)  for general information and if your going to EAA,  for lodging information:  ( http://www.visitoshkosh.com/eaa-lodging/)  .

Dear all,

 

thank you for all the helpfull posts.

I will try to contact Flight-Desing by phone as there was no answer to my email.

 

Yes, I'm from Germany and I will fly with my own CT-LS across the atlantic. I found the visa procedur in germany (interview required...). But I did not found information about visa-waiver.

 

Onother question you sure can answer is, which charts do I need from greenland, canada to the US?

And will I need a special permission from FAA for the US-aircpace (and what about canada)? I heard this is only possible for ferry flights, e.g. for an exhibition plane at Oshkosh. Does anyone knows about that?

 

Please keep on with all your very kind information!

Thank you again!

 

Markus

Hi Markus,

 

Nice hearing from you again. It's been awhile since we met at Page, AZ. I'm sure there are lots of nice people here to help once you get down into the US. I'm sure Jacques in Canada can help too. When are you trying to make this trip?
