Reno Air Races
- September 2020
Reno, Nevada, USA
Ongoing Covid-19 concerns have put paid to this year’s Reno Air Races. The event has been cancelled, say the organisers. Tickets purchased for the 2020 Air Races can be rolled over to the 2021 event, refunded or ticket price can be donated to the organisation. Next air races are scheduled for 15-19 September 2021.
A statement and video from the organisers:
“This decision was not made lightly and we’re going to greatly miss our September Family this year, but the safety of our fans, pilots, staff, volunteers and community is always our top priority. There were many factors that went into this tough decision, including the uncertainty of the state of the pandemic in September. We’re focusing on creating a great event for you when we return on September 15-19, 2021 where we will be hosting the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds.
“As a non-profit organization, the Reno Air Racing Association relies on ticket sales, sponsorships and donations to put on our world-class event. We’ve already seen a significant decrease in revenue, 80% in fact and are counting on our fans and community more than ever to help us preserve the Reno Air Races legacy.”
