Welcome to the Lake Tahoe Experience! Lake Tahoe is a large freshwater lake in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, straddling the border of California and Nevada. We will be busting out our favorite general aviation props (cruise speed less than 150knots) and enjoying the beautiful lake views. Just be careful not to run into any of the mountain peaks all around!
Welcome to our long running series of events that is Tracon Tuesday VI. An event where we staff up a few Tracon sectors and give our controllers abit of fun, where we try to really mix in the VFR/IFR traffic. This time round we are featuring some interesting airspace, some high altitude flying in Reno, fly around the Reno area giving our controllers a run for their money.

Fresno Anyone? Alright... lets go!
Kicking off this March 27th, we are opening the airspace to all that choose to dare as we head into Fresno!
Fresno you say what is this? Well come by and see its marvelous beauty in all she has to offer. Oh and we paired it up with Reno just to make it twice as fun. With that you can have that Reno/Fresno combo, it's an absolute delight.
We hope to see you there.

In keeping with the theme of the region, and during the nice warm weather, we are heating up in Northern California, featuring our two rising airports of our area, Sacramento (SMF) and Reno (RNO). Join us for a night of… well who knows what might happen. Usual story full coverage. Try something new, try something bold and see what happens. We enjoy the challenge here at ZOA. Although we do ask you plan your fuel accordingly, cause… well … stuff happens.
