Reno-Stead Being Considered to Store a Few Large Aircraft.

I want to give you a heads-up that airlines are looking for places to temp park their out-of-service aircraft.  We have our 9 mid-field parking pads that could easily be used, along with some additional space near BLM and west of the grandstands.

There are a couple of airlines discussing temp parking with RTAA at both RNO and possibly Stead.

Should this happen at Stead it would be my intention to close all of our daytime access gates and require access via card reader or phone call ONLY at Gate 130. 

I’ll keep you in the loop as information on this develops, but just wanted to get this on everyone’s radar.
