Spent three days at Reno Stead watching the air races. They provided a good show with little downtime. The racing was exciting and there were a few chills and spills. There could have been a few more vendors in the pit area but outside there was no lacking of things to see and buy. I will be back.

Typical fair foods (nothing healthy..) but good information booths and entertainment!! Will go again next year!! I learned later that they offered a shuttle, so wouldn't have to deal with lines of traffic and parking issues. Definitely worth... More

I have been going to the NCAR for the last thirty years. It started as a birthday gift from my wife. After the very first time through the gate I knew I was hooked. We started with general admission then reserved seating to now having our own front row box seats. I helped crew a Pitts Biplane for a couple... More

If you are into aviation, this is one of your mecca's. One of the places you "must see", at least once in your life. A bucket list item, the Races is the other.

If you like airplanes this is the place to go. Stunts shows, fast planes, breathtaking event. You can walk through an area where they have military planes that you can walk through, wonderful food, vendors and merchandise.

Wow! I really enjoyed the Reno Air Races! If you like airplanes, this is the event for you. Held in September at Reno Stead Airport in the North Valleys of Reno, several different classes of planes race within a perimeter in the sky. I highly recommend that you spend the extra and buy a pit pass. With the pit pass... More
