Operation Raincheck

If you missed the last Operation Raincheck in September, here's your chance to see the NY TRACON up close and personal.

Topic: Flying the System - ATC and You!

Attend this exclusive event and get a rare and behind the scenes look of an Air Traffic facility! Attendees will be furnished with a more complete understanding of the FAA's Air Traffic Control (ATC) system. Topics will include daily ATC operations, equipment and capabilities, Runway Safety, FAA regulatory requirements, the WINGS Pilot Proficiency Program and a review of recent aircraft accidents and incidents.

    This event has been canceled due to the gov't shutdown. This morning, after an inquiry, I received the message below. I hope this is helpful.

    The event is cancelled due to sequester and govt shutdown. There was no procedure in place to cancel this event on SPANS because no one was at work. In addition, we no longer have a FAASTEam Program Manager. I am very sorry for the inconvenience. You can contact me via phone or email if you like.

    I emailed the contact on the FAA event page last night regarding what we can expect and he responded this morning saying the event was canceled due to the gov't shutdown. Strange there was no email notice of this, but I assume it is coming today.

    I know that this is planned for 9 days from now, but would it go on if the federal shutdown were still in effect?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
