Definitely Not An FNO
« on: April 25, 2020, 09:34:49 pm »


Join the Houston ARTCC on 05/28 from 2300z-0400z as we staff up on a Thursday night. This is not an FNO. As the image above says. Actually, it would be bad if this were an FNO. So please, do not confuse this with an FNO. Because clearly, it is not.

It actually takes place on a Thursday. Which is a day before Friday…

and a day after Wednesday.

Obviously.

So, join Houston for our Thursday night event.

Featured TRACONS
KAUS, KSAT, KLCH, KMSY, KBTR, KLFT, KMOB, KGPT, KPOE, KAEX.

Routes are available for booking on https://realops.kermout.us/events/?id=15 if you are unsure of where to fly to/from on a Thursday evening in Houston Airspace... Pilot's please note that routing information will be emailed to you after booking your slot. It is possible your routing will be filtered into your spam folder, in other words, make sure to keep an eye on your spam folder.

See you Thursday.






Not Friday.

Are you sure this isn't an FNO? It looks awfully like it.. It has that smell.

We can assure you, 100%, that this is not an FNO.

The F in FNO stands for Friday.

This event is on a Thursday.

and as you know, Thursday begins with a T... 

Not an F.

So even though this may smell like an FNO, it is in fact, not.


Other things that might smell like an FNO, but are in fact, not.

1. May 2nd's "The Force of Flight"
2. May 23rd's "Cal Scream."
3. Any ZTL Event.

Well, obviously the way you spelled friday was with a lowercase f. Which is different from the acronomatic F that would be found in the Acronym FNO. So, really it's completely different.

We use GMT time in aviation.

The event times shown are in GMT.

The event starts at 2300 GMT on a Thursday, but ends at 0400 GMT on a Friday.

1 hour is done on a Thursday, 3 hours are done on a Friday.

This is in fact an event being held on a Friday, and thus an FNO.

Technically, it would be a FMO (Friday Morning Operation).

The term "night" (for the purposes of morning vs. night) implies PM, or anything after 1200.

So for all practical purposes, it's a ThNO/FMO event.
