As pilots, we appreciate the effort and energy that goes into making this happen every year. Good for Reno and good for aviation.

The Reno Air Races was the best aviation event I have ever attended. The race crews and pilots are so friendly and approachable. Every day was exciting!

If you are into aviation, this is your mecca. Great airshows and then racing of biplanes, sport class, jets, and war birds including P-51's. We have been going for 20 plus years and often meet the same people there!

Great racing in vintage planes, A10 Warthog demonstration, Texas Legends with a B25 and numerous WWII Aircraft and to top it all off, A B2 Flyover. All in all a perfect day at the Races.
