Welcome to Racing Jets Incorporated

Racing Jets Incorporated (RJI) was created to manage the various functions and relationships required to ensure the successful participation of the jet racing community at the Reno National Air Races and other venues. RJI represents the participants in the Jet Class and is dedicated to the furtherance of the interests of the Reno National Air Races, the Jet Class and jet racing as a whole, and wherever possible the individual participants of the Class.

To that end, RJI has been accepted by Reno Air Racing Association (RARA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as the governing organization for the Jet Class for the Reno National Air Races.

RJI has developed a regulated racing format for jet aircraft operators to demonstrate the capabilities of these aircraft and showcase their upgrades, while marketing their products as “The World’s Fastest Motor Sport”

Sharing our passion!

We at Racing Jets Incorporated pride ourselves in sharing these wonderful aircraft with fans of the fastest Motorsport in many ways.  For those Facebook users, you can find a link to our page here or the Facebook icon located next to this text.  Below you will find links to a few of our most recent news items, as well as any updates to our photo and video galleries below.
