Everything you need to know about planning your next trip to the National Championship Air Races wil be found here.

Qualifications for all classes will start on Monday at 8am on September 8th and end at noon on Wednesday September 10th. We will begin racing around noon on Wednesday September 10th with all classes except the Unlimiteds, which will start racing on Thursday afternoon. All classes race each day starting at 8am and continue non-stop until 4:30pm. There are three heats for each class each day. In between the heats, there will be a world class airshow to keep the action in the skies above Stead Airfield.  We will have a much more detailed schedule as we get closer to the event. 

We will not have our 2014 schedule posted until late August but have our 2013 schedule still available. Our schedule will pretty much mirror the 2013 schedule for class races.  You can find out which pilots are going to be here and which planes they'll fly; check out this year's air show performers; see the latest photos and videos and hear the latest from the Reno Air Racing Association; get the latest news and updates on the event; figure out where to park, where to stay and what to bring; and take a look at our site map to help guide you along the way.

Also, on Thursday and Friday during the races, the Reno Air Racing Foundation sponors public, private and charter schools to come to the Races. Please contact our office for more information. 775-972-6663
