Reno-Stead Airport 75th Anniversary

Ruck March

8:00am For more information call Dani Austin: 775-328-6570

 

Join us in celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the Reno- Stead Airport!

In October 1942, Reno Army Air Base began operations at what was later the 192nd Fighter Squadron Nevada Air National Guard and finally named Stead Air Force Base. The base was most notably known as home to the Strategic Air Command's Survival School, Flying Training Wing (helicopters), and Reno Air Defense Sector (ADC). In 1996, the city of Reno acquired the airfield and Reno-Stead Airport began operating as a public use airport under the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority.

To commemorate this military history and the memory of carrying a full rucksack, the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority is hosting a Ruck March on November 4th at the Reno-Stead Airport.  Participants can walk/run the 10K course around the airfield without a rucksack for a small registration fee, or fill a rucksack with non-perishable food.  A BBQ lunch will be held at the end of the march.  All Friends of Reno-Stead Airport and Military Members are invited to attend up to 200 participants. 

 

7th

VMC Club 

Monthly Meeting

6:00pm For more information click here:  VMC Club

Non-instrument rated pilots who want to improve their proficiency now have an excellent new resource through EAA’s VMC Club.

The VMC Club is modeled after the popular IMC Club concept which provides organized “hangar flying” focused on building proficiency in instrument flying. The VMC Club will do the same, but for pilots who are not instrument rated and fly primarily under visual flight rules and under VMC.

The VMC Club offers monthly meetings in which pilots can network and share knowledge and experience. The meetings use real-world scenarios to engage members, and allow a free exchange of information that improves awareness and skills. The intent is to create a community of pilots willing to share information, provide recognition, foster communications, promote safety, and build proficiency.
