Travis RAPCON is a unique approach facility that many Bay Area Pilots get the opportunity to talk to.  From VFR aircraft to C17’s practicing approaches, Travis handles it all.

San Carlos Flight Center invites Master Sergeant John Addams, and Senior Airmen Cameron Roelofs to discuss the Travis RAPCON and its ATC services.  In this seminar they will cover how Travis accommodates basic service to VFR aircraft, and the benefits of receiving VFR flight following within their airspace.  They will also explain some of the ways that Class E airspace relates to Travis AFB, and why it’s important to be talking to Travis RAPCON while operating in their airspace.  Lastly, how pilots can be direct, clear, and concise on the radio while talking to ATC.

The presenters are also eager to take questions from the GA flying community.  If you have ever wondered about the approach operations at Travis AFB, or if you want to learn more about their services and experiences; you won’t want to miss this seminar.
