    ATC Q1 Meeting

    In-person Field Trip Registration Price: $25.00

    We’re doing things a little differently this quarter. We’re running a Field Trip to NY Tracon (aka “NY Approach”)!

    This visit to Tracon will take place on Wednesday, March 20, 2024, starting at 6PM SHARP. We’ll look forward to an orientation session and then watching controllers working live traffic at a (very) busy time of day in the NY metro area. Bring your questions and be sure to ask them. Our hosts, Toby Bucescu, and Jason Kestenbaum, are veteran controllers looking forward to hearing all your questions about working with ATC in our area.

    Now for the logistics:

    First, space is LIMITED to the first 20 people to respond. Tracon can accommodate only so many people, and a smaller group size is better for learning. We will be taking a wait list as well beyond the 20 person limit. Alas, due to security concerns, we can bring only US Citizens as part of our group. Photo ID will be required, think driver license or passport.

    Second, NY Tracon is located at 1515 Stewart Avenue Westbury, NY 11590. Driving there at rush hour is a challenge at best. We need to be at the facility, through security and ready to start the visit at 6PM.

    Third, to aid all of us to get to Tracon on time, we at the WAA are sponsoring a small executive bus to take us all from HPN to Tracon and back again when we’re done. We expect to gather at HPN around 4PM so we can depart on time, and return by approximately 10PM. With WAA sponsoring the lion’s share of the bus cost, we will be collecting $25 on registration from each person to defray a part of the cost.

    Once the 20 spots are taken, we will have spots available for a waitlist (no payment required at this point for the waitlist). BUT, as we need to provide a list of the attendees names to FAA for security purposes no less than a week prior to the event, our attendee list must be set by no later than the close on business on Tuesday, March 12, 2024. If you need to bow out from a reserved place prior to Tuesday, March 12,2024, we will refund your bus payment, but not if you cancel after that date.

    We look forward to this visit to NY Tracon and are thrilled that Toby is working to make it a reality for us.

    Questions relating to registration and payment should be directed to our Executive Director, Jennifer Kempsey at ed@westchesteraviation.org. Questions about the visit itself and our program should be sent to Scott Dyer at scott.dyer@verizon.net.

    We hope you can join us!
