I enjoyed the air races. I had heard about them prior to my temporary detail stint at LTBMU. It was a nice repast.

I volunteered for and attended my first Reno Air Races in 2016 and it was such a treat! People come from all over the world and locals enjoy too. There is something for everyone...air races to watch, of course, shopping at a variety of merchants, reasonably priced delicious food, and lots of exhibits to view and enjoy. I highly recommend...

My wife and I are seniors. We planned out a seventeen day road trip through western states. Scheduled one day for the Air Races. This was our first time at the races. We had purchased and printed grandstand seats and pit passes online. That worked well. Sept 17, 2016 Saturday, excellent weather. Traffic and parking not a problem. Arrived at... More

Traveling with my brother-in-law who is a certified plane nut, our trip to the Reno Air Races was a different experience for me. Having been to air shows before, traveling to an air race I had no idea of what to expect. For 3 days we had grandstand seating which gave us the perfect spot to watch the action. Beside... More

Yet another well run event by the Assoc. Even though it was crowded it did not feel overwhelming. I don't go often, but when I do Its a pleasure.

We were in Reno on a Sierra Club service trip and realized the air show was happening. Admission was $34 for seniors and well worth the price. Nice bleachers for watching the show. If we had more time we would have purchased a pit pass to see the planes and pilots up close.

The air show was amazing! My husband and I had a fantastic time watching! I must say, my favorite part was when the Blue Angels took to the sky. I was awestruck. At one point they did a flyby so close that it scared me and I grabbed my husband. He thought it was amazing too. We brought home pictures... More

We sat in the grand stand general admission and had fabulous seats all four days. Great show. Only thing I wish they would say what is really happening when there is a accident. My brother was with us and was surprised they did not update the crowd with information. We are all wanting to know what's going on. Funny I... More

Every year we attend the Reno Air races and they are always a good time. The airport does an excellent job in providing good venders, bathroom facilities, pit passes, programs etc. This is a unique opportunity to get up close and personal, meeting the pilots, watching the crew in the pits, seeing the planes challenge a wide open course. This... More

Six classes of racing ranging from tiny Formula 1 aircraft to racing warbirds and jets, and a world-class airshow (this year featuring the Blue Angels) between racing heats. You can watch from the grandstands or walk around the pits and watch... More
