OSHKOSH - We now know when the air traffic control tower at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh will close.
The Federal Aviation Administration has set April 21 as the date funding for the control tower will stop.
Last week, the FAA announced it would close 149 air traffic control towers nationwide. The FAA needs to cut $637 million by September as part of the mandated spending cuts known as "sequestration." Seven other Wisconsin airports are also set to see their control towers shut down.
Airport director Peter Moll has said the closure is a major disappointment. Moll told FOX 11 that once the tower shuts down, the airport will still operate, but it will be much different. Individual pilots and ground crews will have work together to avoid collisions.
The closure is not expected to affect the Experimental Aircraft Association's annual AirVenture fly-in convention.
