Steve Katxmann was an icon in the Reno-area aviation scene. He was a member of our EAA Chapter until he moved his Bonanza from the Reno-Stead Airport to the Reno Airport. Even then he continued to be an active and welcomed member of our chapter’s IMC Club. I’m sure that there will be other articles published recounting his extensive aviation activities in and around Reno, including his participation as a Trustee of the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority.
From the latest RTAG newsletter:
It is with sadness that I report the passing of Steve Katzmann, fellow aviator and GA champion. RTAG, along with longtime members John Howitt and Jim Rundle, will be sponsoring a Gone West in honor of Steve on Wednesday, August 11th, from 6PM, at Pinocchio’s, 4820 Vista Blvd., in Sparks. There will be a no-host bar with light refreshments. Please join us in honoring Steve.
