  • As pilots, we appreciate the effort and energy that goes into making this happen every year. Good for Reno and good for aviation.  more »
  • The Reno Air Races was the best aviation event I have ever attended. The race crews and pilots are so friendly and approachable. Every day was exciting!  more »
  • If you are into aviation, this is your mecca. Great airshows and then racing of biplanes, sport class, jets, and war birds including P-51's. We have been going for 20 plus years and often meet the sam...  more »

  • I would go 10 stars if I could! What a unique event, for someone looking for a different unique sport check this out. We where there for the Friday, Saturday, and the Sunday and we were never bored and always where doing things. We got tickets for the Checkered Flag Club and the extra money was well worth it. Great breakfast and lunch where included in those tickets and a open bar. Private bleachers with a great view. Thanks to all the people that put this event on and the Checkered Flag Club, we will be back!
  • Fun times with family and friends. We tried this place out on our weekend of fun last week and really enjoyed it. good for all ages...
  • We just happened to be in Reno and found the air races were going on. The event was very well organized and people were great. On a negative side is the local police use the event as a fund raiser. Time to move the event out of Nevada. They already have gambling, prostitution and marijuana to fund government and the don’t have to hand out trumped up tickets on top of it. Kiss my ass Officer Roy Bean or who ever you think you are.
  • Excellent experience. I recommend to anyone looking for something new. We always have a good time. The events are fun and the static displays educational. From drones to huge transport aircraft. The pits are special, race planes and war birds. In the pits you can get up close and personal.
  • Never know how the weather is going to be so check the forecast. There isn't an indoors so dress appropriately. You're going to spend too much on everything so anything you buy has to be a good value for you. The pit pass is a must if you want to talk to the pilots or watch the crew work on the planes or just get a good selfie with the planes. You can get good pics with your cell phone but a telephoto lens helps with action shots. The schedule changes and the participants change based on how the day unfolds so be prepared for anything to show up. Or not.

Where to stay in Reno

Since Reno's casinos want you to save your money for the blackjack table, they offer some very reasonable rates on their rooms. Even a stay in one of the amenity-rich resort- or spa-style casinos downtown can be quite affordable. Plenty of hotels, motels, inns, and lodges are scattered throughout town, though most lie in and around downtown. If you're planning to ski in the mountains west of town, staying near Interstate 80 can save a couple minutes on your commute. Accommodations in Reno generally remain easy to find, but the days before and after the popular Burning Man festival in the desert east of the city tend to see a bump in visitors. Consider booking ahead if your visit coincides with the festival.
