THE FASTEST MOTORSPORT EVENT ON EARTH

THE RENO AIR RACES

HEADS UP

NINE WEEKS AWAY: We will need a head count.

NO Group discounts this year - please book individually

 

A Unique experience where everyone speaks aviation - a party with a little aviation noise in the background. Featuring head to head air racing at speeds that can exceed 500mph. 

 

There will be no flying in directly to KRTS, (Stead, Home of the Air Races)

Flying into KRNO is the closest, but gets booked up fast at Atlantic Aviation, plus higher tie-downs, landing fees and fuel costs.

 

Flying into KCXP, Carson City is 30 nm from KRTS, 25 minutes south of KRNO is a great option for the following reasons:

 

Steve Lewis, an IFFR member has an FBO on site and will offer free tie-downs.

No landing fees. Fuel is about .75 cents a gallon cheaper.

 

Lodging options are abundant in the south side of Reno. It’s a 20 minute drive from KCXP to Reno.  

It’s another 15 minute drive from downtown Reno to the Air Races.

Several members are booked in at SpringHill Suites by Marriott - Reno.

 

Local IFFR members will assist in providing transportation from and to KCXP and from and to the Air Races.

There will be an evening BBQ at the Puliz’s home on Friday, September 17th. Which will be $20.00 per person paid in cash at event which will include a sumptuous BBQ beverages including wine, beer and great fellowship.

We will also meet on Thursday night for dinner - restaurant TBD.
