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!"

ICAO: Air Travel Down 60 Per Cent

Airline Industry Losses Top $370 Billion

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) said that as seating capacity fell by around 50 per cent last year, that left just 1.8 billion passengers taking flights through 2020, compared with around 4.5 billion in 2019. That adds up to a staggering financial loss to the industry of around $370 billion, “with airports and air navigation services providers losing a further 115 billion and 13 billion, respectively”, said ICAO. As the coronavirus began its global spread, the air industry came to a virtual standstill by the end of March. Following widespread national lockdowns, by April the overall number of passengers had fallen 92 per cent from 2019 levels, an average of the 98 per cent drop-off seen in international traffic and 87 per cent fall in domestic air travel.
