Reno Air Racing Association Still Plans 60th Anniversary Airshow

Though... No Air Races, Anywhere, Are Yet In Sight

Not letting an auspicious anniversary go to waste, the folks of the late and oft-lamented Reno Air Races, are still planning an airshow. Just not as speedy as we've been used to...

SO.... the Reno Air Racing Association (RARA) is hosting an air show at Reno–Stead Airport from Friday, Oct. 4 to Sunday, Oct. 6. Headlining the event is an opportunity for fans to witness two military jet team demonstrations, featuring dual performances from the legendary United States Navy Blue Angels and the Canadian Royal Air Force Snowbirds. Additionally, fans can expect to see the United States Air Force F-16 Viper Demo, as well as a lineup of first-class civilian acts. The celebration will mark RARA’s 60th anniversary in Reno as it continues its mission to honor the military and support aviation and STEM education.  

“We’re proud of the legacy we've established for the past 60 years here in Reno. As always, our mission is focused on making the world of aviation accessible to the community while also helping to inspire the future generation to pursue careers in aviation,” said Fred Telling, RARA CEO. “This will be our first air show without racing in Reno and we’re looking forward to celebrating 60 amazing years with the community where Unlimited Air Racing we reborn in 1964."

Along with a number of air show acts, RARA is bringing back its STEM Discovery Zone and static aircraft displays for those who may have missed them at the final National Championship Air Races in Reno. Static aircraft displays will include a world-class lineup of aircraft ranging from vintage to military and more, while visitors to the STEM Discovery Zone can immerse themselves in educational aviation activities.

“Our air show line up this year is awesome. Hosting both the Blue Angels and Snowbirds will be a privilege for our organization and a thrilling experience for the fans. The F-16 Viper Demo is also incredible, plus we’re hard at work putting together an exciting lineup of civilian performances, along with other surprises. It’s going to be remarkably entertaining for all attendees,” said Tony Logoteta, RARA COO. “It’s been a wonderful 60 years in Reno and this air show is the perfect way for us to celebrate.”

A final decision on the future home for the National Championship Air Races is expected to be announced in the first quarter of 2024.
