Pylon Racing Seminar (PRS)
PRS takes place each year in June at the Reno-Stead Airport (KRTS). Sponsored by the Reno Air Race Association, and conducted by each Race Class Organization, PRS is an opportunity for race pilots to prepare, practice and become certified to race in September. The Sport Class Air Racing Association offers education, training, and race course practice time to current race-certified pilots, and rookie pilots seeking certification. PRS is a pilot certification program, not an aircraft qualification period, and includes Ground School, Pylon Race Course flying, and a check ride with a Sport Class Check Pilot. During PRS, each pilot must have required safety equipment, including a flight suit, a helmet, and gloves. Parachutes are optional. Each Pilot/Aircraft must have RARA named to their existing insurance policy or purchase an additional policy for this purpose. This policy information is covered in detail inside the PRS or Racing applications.
