NAHI Participants

Stead Airport, Reno, NV. - Visitors to the Reno National Championship Air Races September 16-20 are invited to take a journey through aviation history to see beautifully restored testaments to our rich aviation legacy at the National Aviation Heritage Invitational. Rare planes dating back to the 1920’s along with the powerful warbirds are vying for the prestigious Rolls-Royce Aviation Heritage Trophy.

The National Aviation Hall of Fame’s ‘People’s Choice’ trophy is awarded to the owner of the aircraft which receives the most votes from the public reviewing the aircraft during the Invitational. Voting ends September 19 at 5:00 p.m.

National Aviation Hall of Fame Enshrinees will assist in presenting the awards
