Pylon Racing Seminar

(Rookie School)

Each year an event is held in June for our members to practice, train and certify new pilots to race in the National Championship Air Races.  The event is commonly referred to as “Rookie School” as this is where all new pilots train to be certified race pilots.  Although, most of the aircraft flown during Pylon Racing Seminar (PRS) are flown by veteran racers to test their aircraft and improve their skills on the course.

If you would like to attend PRS, first you must become of member of Racing Jets Incorporated as well as reserve a race number for your aircraft.  Those things can be done on the Membership page.  Once you are a member, you must complete a PRS application with the Reno Air Race Association found at the link below.

PRS Entry Application

Accommodations are included in your PRS entry fee for some nights arranged by RARA. As an additional option, the Sport Class secures special rates during PRS and race week at the Grand Sierra Resort. Should you wish to stay at the Grand Sierra Resort, be sure to “opt out” of the included hotel room on the PRS application form. Transportation will be available to and from Stead Airfield from either hotel.
