October 14-16 (Fri-Sun) 12:00pm Las Vegas Red Bull Air Race

Event Date: 
Friday, October 14, 2016 - 10:00am


For the final race of 2016, the lights of Las Vegas will welcome The Red Bull Air Races in mid-October. The original goal of the Red Bull team was to create the most exciting and fastest moving motorsport on Earth; they accidentally exceeded everyone’s expectations. The Red Bull Air Races offer aviation fanatics and pilots alike the opportunity to witness some of the best pilots in the world operating at high speeds and low altitudes; while being only hundreds of yards away from the action. The Air Races use specially designed aerial tracks that differ from venue to venue. Each track offers different challenges including high G-forces, precise turns, 90 degree banks through gates, and much more.

This year San Carlos Flight Center’s FlyOutGroup is making the short hop over the sierras to Las Vegas to get in on the action. Las Vegas is transforming their motor speedway into a makeshift airport to accommodate the event. We will make our way down to the North Las Vegas Airport (KVGT) on Friday, Oct 14th and spend the weekend watching the races by day and enjoying Sin City by night. If you thought your flight instructor was an impressive pilot, just wait to see what these guys can do!  Adrenaline junkies and pilots, this is your chance to witness the best of the best in our industry!
