Nice air show

The show is great if you want to see daring pilots doing incredible acrobatics in the air. I really enjoyed the show and will come back this year'a version of it.

There is absolutely nothing like the sight and sounds of souped up WW2 airplanes screaming passed you at 500mph! This is truly an experience!

We spent two days at the Reno air races and really enjoyed the experience. This is the granddaddy to the Red Bull Air Races - I believe they started air racing at Reno in the 50's. There are a number of different divisions including jets, sport aircraft and biplanes, but the highlight is the open class of highly modified World... More

Exciting day at the races. Like an airshow but with races interspaced with the exhibitions. Worth a day, because you won't see this anywhere else.

If there's any interest in Aircraft, History and Future, this is a must-see stop. Plan a whole vacation or a single day. Great Customer-type Services available.

Don't miss attending the annual Reno Air Races. Fun for the whole family. Spend extra and get the Pit pass. I'm a pilot but I I've been going for many years - even before I became a pilot. o

My whole family waits for the Air Races every year. It is so special to the northern NV area. You have to attend this extremely loud event.

I love the Reno Air Races! It is hands down the best special event in the Reno area. So much to see and do, you can easily spend at least a couple of days there. We always go mid-week and it is not crowded and much more affordable. The static displays are really interesting and you can take photos by... More

I've been to the races near Reno many times over the past decade, so I thought I'd add my views on this great event. First of all, the Reno Air Races are unmatched anywhere in the world. If you are at all interested in aircraft racing, this is the place. From biplanes to WWII fighters to jets, the races show... More
