Understanding the Airspace we exist within!

Saturday, April 16th, 2016
7:00 AM until 1:30 PM

Lunch sponsored afterward by Texas Piper Sales, North.

Questions you may have wondered about:

  • Why am I talking to Houston Center but I am in Mississippi?
  • Why did Center just turn me in to that Thunderstorm cell?
  • What happens when I get handed to approach and why are they making me descend so far out?
  • Can I overfly the Class B Airspace and not get in trouble?

Hosted By Texas Piper Sales North, DFW Center, AirFleet Capital, and Jackson Walker Law firm.

You are invited to join Cutter Texas Piper Sales for the 2016 Operation Raincheck Tour – your opportunity as a pilot to experience the behind-the-scenes operations of our Air Traffic Control system and learn more about what we can do as pilots to better partner with our ATC teams to improve communication, safety, situational awareness, and operational efficiency in the air and on the ground.

This year’s Operation RainCheck will begin at 7:00am at our Addison facilities were we will take participants to Dallas-Fort Worth Airport (DFW) on Saturday, April 16th 2016 to tour the DFW Center facilities. The event will run from 8:30am to 1:30pm and lunch will is sponsored afterward by Texas Piper Sales, North. Space is limited to 25 participants, so please RSVP today!

In the past, many pilots and owners of a variety of airplane types joined us for Operation Raincheck and their experience levels ranged from low time pilots all the way up to skilled high-timers. Previous tours of the FAA DFW ARTCC/Center Operations Center allowed participants to watch and listen to live ATC activity from the Control Room Floor and also included interactive question and answer sessions. All attendees enjoyed the insightful tour and many vowed to come back for Operation Raincheck at the DFW TRACON in 2016!
