Join us at the 2019 STIHL National Championship Air Races to witness the first-ever Short Take Off and Landing (STOL) drag racing demonstrations. STOL drag racing is unlike any other aviation event in the world.
The STOL Drag Racing Demonstration rules are simple. Racers take off down the 2,000-foot course, accelerating enough but not too much in order to land at the line at the designated halfway point, come to a complete stop, pivot 180 degrees and take off again towards the original start line
It’s all part of the 2019 STIHL National Championship Air Races, featuring head-to-head racing, the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, world-renowned aerobatic pilot Rob Holland and our many on-the-ground experiences that honor our military and celebrate aviation.
