High-tech F-22 Raptor and top female aerobatic pilot headline 2014 National Championship Air Races entertainment lineup


The only event of its kind in the world, the National Championship Air Races celebrated its 50th event in September 2013 with approximately 200,000 spectators from all around the world. This proved an important benchmark in the event's recovery from the tragedy of 2011. Unfortunately, despite a thrilling and worthy celebration, the event suffered a significant financial shortfall for the third year in a row. This is primarily due to the hefty and cumbersome insurance premium required in the wake of 2011. While the premium continues to decrease, we are working to establish a solid foundation for this historic event for 2014 and well beyond. As such, we need the help and support of the entire Air Race family. In order to be able to fully carry-out the operations for the future, we must raise $500,000 in cash, commitments and debt reduction by Dec. 15, 2013. In short, we need your help to immediately establish a successful economic foundation for the Reno Air Races well into the future.

Donate today and help keep us in the skies for 50 more years. 

Thank you!
