Due to concerns regarding the spread of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), the NSF-ICF is taking preventive measures and suspending its tour program until further notice. Any groups that have been impacted by the tour shutdown will be prioritized when we resume tour operations. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

With 10 of the world's only ski-equipped LC-130 Hercules aircraft, commonly referred to as a Skibird, the New York Air National Guard's 109th Airlift Wing is able to provide the airlift needed to get to remote locations in Antarctica and Greenland in support of the National Science Foundation.
