in 2010 for the 50th anniversary of the Piper Cherokee, Cherokees to Oshkosh (CtO) was formed to celebrate with a mass arrival. July 20, 2019 will be our tenth arrival.

Cherokees to Oshkosh is the best way to go to OSH. Not only do we have a scheduled arrival time for which our path is cleared by ATC, but you get to join with a great group of aviators for a lot more fun than you can have on your own. Our family of Cherokee drivers, significant others, families and buddies, park together, camp together (for those who don't care for the posh lifestyle of a hotel - we do have a few of those) and have our own hospitality tent. Each day we can share with each other about what not to miss, or that which might not be necessary to see. In addition to our planned social events, there are lots of informal ways to spend our evenings, some involve adult beverages. on occasion we have watched TV shows and films with airplanes as main characters. Our very generous sponsors give a number of wonderful prizes and gifts for participants. Bottom line, we have a lot of fun.
Our LOA (letter of agreement) with the FAA limits us to 50 aircraft. Registration will tentatively begin on January 1, 2019. Registrants above the first 50, will be placed on a wait list.

CtO is open to all variants of PA28s and PA32s. Our participants fly everything from stock Cherokee 140s to Turbo Saratogas, and have included just about every variant of Cherokee including Arrows, Turbo Arrows, Lances, Dakotas, 6s, Archers, Warriors, Cruisers, 140m 160m 180. We haven't had any PA24 Comanches yet, but you too are welcome too.

For more information, visit cherokees2Osh.com . The site will have regular updates as we approach registration and and OSH.

We thank Piper Flyer for their generous support of CtO.

If you want the experience of flying into the AirVenture grounds we highly recommend joining the Cherokees to Osh group. They are a great bunch of folks and run a very squared away operation. This past year they were able to fly their mass arrival into KOSH before the weather shut down (delayed) most others because they were prepared and ready to take advantage of an earlier departure when it was offered to them.

However, if flying into KOSH is not your idea of fun, come join us for the Gathering at Waupaca, stay in a nice hotel and take a luxury bus into the grounds. We've talked with the CtO folks about teaming up to create an option for those of you who want to fly the mass arrival, but don't want to camp on the grounds, so stay tuned for more info on that.

Between Cherokees to Osh and Piper Flyer Association you'll find your perfect Airventure adventure.
