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

There is nothing like the Reno Air Races anywhere else. Where else could you hope to see highly modified 70-year-old warbirds racing each other at speeds approaching 500mph, 40 feet off the ground, wingtip to wingtip? The sound these planes make as they roar past the crowd is incredible, you can feel it in your chest. I've attended these event... More

I've attended 22 years of the greatest Air Show on earth! As a pilot, this is the ultimate. The races, the pits, the static displays all make for a fantastic few days. We usually rent a motor home and stay for several days on site. Although a dangerous sport , having witnessed several fatal accidents,it is still the greatest sport... More

This was our first visit to the Reno Air Races and so glad we went. Thoroughly enjoyed our day, a little more shade over the grand stands would be nice.
