VMC Club Meeting

6pm For more information go to:  EAA 1361

Non-instrument rated pilots who want to improve their proficiency now have an excellent new resource through EAA’s VMC Club.

The VMC Club is modeled after the popular IMC Club concept which provides organized “hangar flying” focused on building proficiency in instrument flying. The VMC Club will do the same, but for pilots who are not instrument rated and fly primarily under visual flight rules and under VMC.

The VMC Club offers monthly meetings in which pilots can network and share knowledge and experience. The meetings use real-world scenarios to engage members, and allow a free exchange of information that improves awareness and skills. The intent is to create a community of pilots willing to share information, provide recognition, foster communications, promote safety, and build proficiency.

If you’re nodding your head “Yes” and are between the ages of 8 and 17, you’re ready to take a free Young Eagles flight and see what real pilots do on the ground and in the air.

Since 1992, more than 1.9 million Young Eagles have enjoyed a flight from EAA’s network of volunteer pilots. For many, it was the start of their journey to becoming a pilot, aircraft mechanic, air traffic controller, or many other career possibilities.

Sports Car Club of America

Solo Points Event 8 & 9

  For further informtaion go to:  Sports Car Club of America

Solo (also called Autocross or Slalom) is a timed competition of driving skill, the entry point of motorsports

Speeds and hazards to spectators, participants, and property do not exceed those found in normal, legal highway driving. It's a lot more fun than street driving and you can't get a speeding ticket! Best of all, you can enter in your everyday street car!

Reno SCCA hosts a full season-long Solo championship for those that wish to compete for a championship trophy. However, events are always open to casual competitors. We even have a novice program that takes the confusion out of car classing and rules.

Solo events are generally held in a wide-open paved area. Reno SCCA holds most of its events on a tarmac at Stead Airport. The event consists of individual timed runs through a course made of traffic cones. The fastest time wins, and cars are grouped into classes based on capability.

Reno Air Races

 
  For more information got to:  Reno Air Races

 

The National Championship Air Races is the last event of its kind, carrying on the tradition of the Cleveland Air Races of the 1920s, 30s and 40s. In 1964, Bill Stead organized an air race near Reno, Nevada, and the Reno National Championship Air Races were born. The event that Bill Stead started in the Nevada desert more than 53 years ago is still going strong. The event has only been cancelled once in September of 2001 when all aircraft in the United States were grounded following the terrorists attacks in New York and Washington.
