Operation Santa Claus
For this annual event, RTAG teams up with other groups and businesses at KRNO to provide Christmas for needy families in the community. There's a Parade of Airplanes and then Santa and Mrs. Claus arrive in a C-130! The Atlantic Aviation hangar is decorated like a Winter Wonderland where the families enjoy lunch, games, and entertainment. Each family receives a Christmas tree and wrapped gifts to take home.

Chili Cook-Off Winners
RTAG has teamed up with Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful (KTMB) to clean the west side of Rock Blvd. between Mill Street and Edison Way. An Adopt-a-Spot sign has been erected with the RTAG logo and the text "In Honor of Members Who Have Flown West." We are sponsoring this cleanup to make sure that FOD (Foreign Object Debris) does not become an issue for our members AND to show support for what KTMB is accomplishing in our community. Help us KEEP TRUCKEE MEADOWS BEAUTIFUL by participating in our next clean up! Click the photo to see a slideshow.
Pilots fly from airport to airport, collecting playing cards that are individually sealed in secure envelopes. At the end of the circuit, pilots enjoy lunch and camaraderie, and present their sealed envelopes for judging. Half of the entry fees go to the Tom Pagnano Memorial Scholarship Fund and the other half is divided between the winners.
