Reno/Tahoe International Airport (RNO)
Reno/Tahoe International Airport (RNO) is a medium sized, multi-use airport, located on the southeast edge of the city of Reno, Nevada. The traffic mix consists of everything from small, back-country capable airplanes, all the way to heavy military transports. Pilot experience levels that vary from the beginning student pilot all the way to seasoned airline captain, along with the diverse aircraft and traffic mix, make Reno a challenging airport environment for pilots and controllers alike. The airport also experiences a major increase in traffic during the annual Burning Man Festival and the Reno Air races. RNO has parallel runways with staggered thresholds, making wrong surface landings a potential issue, and the airport is surrounded by higher terrain in all directions and has its own Class Charlie airspace. This video prepares pilots for other challenges, runway configurations and hot spots at RNO.
