Following our vision of viewing the Reno-Stead Airport as an “educational campus” during the Air Races, the Foundation tent will host a variety of classes and experiential opportunities for all race patrons. The courses are intended to inform, inspire, and/or engage patrons in any and all areas of aviation. Courses linked to air racing, general aviation, unmanned aerial systems, and aerospace will be offered – mostly as introductory information sessions – but with some courses offered to those with more experience.
Speakers of each 15-minute workshop will be leaders in the respective areas and recruited by Foundation staff and board members. In addition, a representative of each organization hosting a booth within the Foundation tent will conduct an information session and may be recruited to speak more specifically to the area(s) of his or specialty.
