Winter in July - Secrets of Snow Operations and Maintenance at MAC

07:15 AM - 09:45 AM Central Standard Time

You've heard of Christmas in July... and in the spirit of celebrating opposites, WTS MN invites you to celebrate one of our favorite seasons in transportation (Winter) in July on Wednesday, July 19th!

At this WTS Technical Tour, Bridget Rief, the new Vice President for Planning and Development at the Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) will welcome us to the MAC's state of the art Maintenance Facility.  We will also be greeted by Sara Freese, Assistant Director of Operations, Field Maintenance and Airside Operations.
Charlie Beuning, Assistant Manager of Field Maintenance for the Minneapolis/St. Paul Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC), will explain how winter weather can have a serious impact on safe airport operations, often resulting in conditions that may lead to incidents, accidents, or delays. For that reason, snow and ice control at an airport is extremely important, regardless of the size of the airport or the aircraft using it. Charlie will guide us through MSP's runway clearance, snow removal plan, and other secrets to getting it all done during small and 20-inch snow events.Finally, we'll conclude with a behind-the-scenes tour of the Maintenance Facility to see equipment up close, experiment with a plowing simulator, and more.
Join us now - these folks are buuuusy in the Winter!
