Whether you are a NCAR experienced racer or a Rookie, the Pylon Racing Seminar (PRS) offers something for everyone.  If you plan on racing in the National Championship Air Races this September, this seminar is highly recommended!  You’ll check-in on Tuesday, June 6th and you will receive four (4) days of instruction from some of the greatest race pilots of all time.  You will learn to fly the pylons at 50 feet above the desert floor at extreme speeds!

It is the objective of the Reno Air Racing Association Board of Directors to assemble the most experienced, skilled, trained and race-certified pilots to compete at the National Championship Air Races. To accomplish this objective, RARA along with the individual racing class organizations provide PRS to all pilots — offering race practice time, education, training and certification to all pilots and allowing them to race with maximum competitiveness and safety at the National Championship Air Races.

Reno Stead Users

The Reno-Stead Airport, formerly Reno Army Air Base and then Stead Air Force Base was turned over to the city of Reno in 1966 and is now operated by the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority . It is the premier general aviation airport in Northern Nevada and is a reliever airport for Reno-Tahoe International Airport.

The Reno-Stead Airport Association (RSAA) was formed in 1996 by business owners and tenants on the Reno-Stead Airport who felt that a legal entity would be the best solution to ensuring airport user input to development and use plans for Reno-Stead.

RSAA’s mission is to ensure that all Tenants have the opportunity to speak in a united voice to the Reno Tahoe Airport Authority (owner of the airfield facility), the Federal Aviation Administration and the Local Governments relative to safe and affordable flying in Northern Nevada, while also enriching and promoting the reputation of General Aviation within our community.

Membership in RSAA is open to all individuals who use or wish to support the Reno-Stead Airport.

SEPTEMBER 2018

12th - 16th

Reno Championship Air Races

 
7:00am - 4:00pm For more information visit their website at: Air Races

The National Championship Air Races is the last event of its kind, carrying on the tradition of the Cleveland Air Races of the 1920s, 30s and 40s. In 1964, Bill Stead organized an air race near Reno, Nevada, and the Reno National Championship Air Races were born. The event that Bill Stead started in the Nevada desert more than 53 years ago is still going strong. The event has only been cancelled once in September of 2001 when all aircraft in the United States were grounded following the terrorists attacks in New York and Washington.

Held every September just north of Reno, the National Championship Air Races have become an institution for northern Nevada and aviation enthusiasts from around the world. For one week, the high desert north of Reno becomes home to hundreds of aircraft, their pilots and crews. Over the past ten years, the event has attracted more than 1 million spectators and generated more than $600 million for the region’s economy. The event features six racing classes, a large display of static aircraft and several military and civil flight demonstrations.
