Always a great time. Parking can be a problem, otherwise the day is great. The fly overs by the invited flight teams are fantastic.

The timing at the beginning of September means you nearly always have great weather. Not too hot not too cold. Normally blue skies which means great viewing of the various racers and performers. This is something that truly can only be held here. No other venue would work as well. Mountains and desert for a back drop and ultra fast... More

Too bad it is becoming too expensive for the elderly and parking/access is very difficult for the handicapped. I remember many years ago when I was younger when my friends & I would actually fly to Reno, just for the races.... that was fun then!

The air races in Reno are an opportunity that simply isn't available anywhere else in the world. To see the planes, the pilots and all the exhibits is truly breathtaking. This event is totally professional and to top things off a lot of charities benefit from the hard work of the paid staff and the hundreds of volunteers who work... More

If you love flying and you enjoy watching the best of the best in the air, then you will appreciate the Reno Air Races. Lots of show, lots of fun, and lots of cameraderie. If you don't like airplanes, speed and sound, don't go!

I am married to a pilot. I love flying as a means of transportation. I attended the Reno Air Races as an anniversary gift to my husband. It turned out to be a VERY expensive weekend—also very exhausting, lots of walking, so much to see.

This is not your ordinary Air Show; this is Air Racing at its best. You get to see all of the planes and events that you would see in an ordinary air show with the added bonuses of watching vintage planes racing through the pylons. It is truly amazing and something that you have to watch up close and personal.... More

If you ever wanted to just look up and watch when you hear a plane fly overhead, you are a candidate for this spectacular and unique spectacle. Once a year and only in one place on this Earth; this business of flying around the race course pylons as fast as it will go, happens right there in front of the... More
