Greetings Aviation Enthusiasts!

The National Weather Service (NWS) Forecast Office in Reno, NV along with both NWS Western and Central Region, would like to invite you to the Intermountain West Aviation Weather Safety (IWAWS) Workshop in Reno, NV on June 10-11, 2022. Workshop participation is encouraged for individuals within the Intermountain West aviation and meteorology communities and is free-of-charge. Please note in-person workshop attendance will be limited to 80 people each day and there will also be virtual options.

The purpose of the IWAWS Workshop is to promote aviation safety and productivity through improved weather awareness and forecasting services.
