Well, the Red Bull Air Race might be over for this year in the United States, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still grab Reno Air Racing tickets and plan a guys weekend or mancation around this amazing sport.
The Reno Air Race is held each fall and this year is the 45th National Championship Air Race and Air Show. It will be held September 10-14, and if you thought that the Red Bull Air Race was big, this will knock your socks off! One of the great things about the Reno air race is that you will see a variety of air craft in 6 different categories, with some in the “unlimited” category reaching speeds up to 500 miles per hour. Pretty much all types of small planes are represented in the race, from reconditioned WWII fighters to specially designed small jets and kit air craft. In addition to the air race, you’ll also be treated to a tremendous air show featuring displays of military and civilian flight demonstrations, aerobatic performers, and even the United States Air Force Thunderbirds.
