Brief Description:

The Truckee Tahoe Airport District and West Valley Flying Club invite you to join us for an in-depth look at flying to one of the Bay Area’s top aviation destinations. Truckee Tahoe Airport is a popular place to stop on any pilots list, but can also be one of the most challenging. Hardy Bullock is the Director of Aviation and Community Services at the Truckee Tahoe Airport District, and he will cover a range of topics that flying to Truckee involves.  His extensive local knowledge makes him an expert on arrivals and departures, obstacles, mixing jet traffic with glider traffic, and community awareness. Mountain flying topics specific to Truckee will also be covered, including hazards, weather, night operations, performance, and situational awareness. Local anecdotes and factual stories of accidents from NTSB reports will be reviewed, and additional resources and contact information will be provided for those that want to learn even more.
