2021 Reno Air Races On Schedule To Return September 15-19

Has Raised Over $460,000 Of $500,000 Fund-Raising Goal

We may have a glimmer of good news concerning the much-anticipated next edition of the Reno Air Races.

Cancelled in 2020 over worldwide concerns with the growing COVID pandemic, they reached out to the aviation community for donations to provide temporary funding so that the organization could survive to more promising times.

The Reno folks have divulged that, "We’re excited to announce that the National Championship Air Races are scheduled to return for its 57th year on September 15-19, 2021, pending COVID-19 restrictions. After canceling the 2020 event we found ourselves with a significant financial loss that we knew would be a tremendous challenge to overcome. To make up for this, we launched a fundraiser campaign to 'Save the Races.' Thanks to the support and generosity of the air racing community, we raised over $460,000 of our $500,000 goal!"

According to RARA, this cash allows them to move one with 2021 planning.

"The safety of our pilots, volunteers, fans and community is our top priority; and with the evolving health situation, we’re optimistic that by September we’ll be able to put on a safe and spectacular event for all our race fans. While we were able to get close to our goal, we still have some work to do to bridge our financial gap. Be on the lookout for our upcoming auctions, raffles and other opportunities to help our cause."

We'll keep you apprised.
