General Meeting

The Reno-Stead Airport Association (RSAA) was formed in 1996 by business owners and tenants on the Reno-Stead Airport who felt that a legal entity would be the best solution to ensuring airport user input to development and use plans for Reno-Stead.

RSAA’s mission is to ensure that all Tenants have the opportunity to speak in a united voice to the Reno Tahoe Airport Authority (owner of the airfield facility), the Federal Aviation Administration and the Local Governments relative to safe and affordable flying in Northern Nevada, while also enriching and promoting the reputation of General Aviation within our community.

Membership in RSAA is open to all individuals who use or wish to support the Reno-Stead Airport.

Special Guest Speaker: Ben Scott

Ben Scott will tell us about his historic Stearman 4E Speedmail biplane, and show photos of himself and two friends flying their airmail planes to deliver the US Mail. He also will tell about how they celebrated the anniversary of the airmail in 2018 by flying from San Diego to Washington.

Ben’s beautiful black and yellow Stearman Model 4E is an open cockpit three place biplane. The airplane has a Pratt & Whitney Wasp SC-1 engine of 420/450 horsepower.  The plane has been in Ben’s family for many years. It was regularly flown from Los Angeles to Reno over the Sierras by Ben’s dad when visiting his car dealership.

To accomplish this objective, RARA along with the individual racing class organizations provide PRS to all pilots — offering race practice time, education, training and certification to all pilots and allowing them to race with maximum competitiveness and safety at the National Championship Air Races.
