Have attended for a number of years. Enjoy viewing the large variety of planes up close. Can even enter some of them. The races are exciting to watch as pilots show off their flying skills.

We were in Reno on a Sierra Club service trip and realized the air show was happening. Admission was $34 for seniors and well worth the price. Nice bleachers for watching the show. If we had more time we would have purchased a pit pass...More

The air show was amazing! My husband and I had a fantastic time watching! I must say, my favorite part was when the Blue Angels took to the sky. I was awestruck. At one point they did a flyby so close that it scared me...More
