Join us for a fast-paced high altitude “overflight” of the FAA NAS where we will cover tower, terminal, and en-route operations; were everyday men and women do extraordinary work. There are 7,000 air objects flying in the NAS at any given moment. This “overflight” hopes to provide you some insight as to how it comes together in a safe and orderly fashion through thousands of people, hundreds of places, and billions in technology.
Every hour of every day families in our community face hunger, abuse, and homelessness.
