After an impressive performance in Russia, AOPA Ambassador Michael Goulian now sits atop the leaderboard of the Red Bull Air Race World Championship. The race series now comes the U.S. for two decisive races – the first at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on October 6-7 and the second at Texas Motor Speedway on Nov 17-18.
The Red Bull Air Race features the world's best racing pilots in a pure motorsport competition that combines speed, precision and skill. Using the fastest, most agile, lightweight raceplanes, pilots hit speeds of 230 mph while enduring forces of up to 12G as they navigate a low level slalom track marked by 82-feet-high, air-filled pylons.

AOPA was informed that due to last-minute event scheduling changes, we will not be able to host our annual Brick Yard Bash at Indianapolis this year. Those who have purchased tickets to the Brickyard Bash will receive a full refund. AOPA will still be onsite in the Engagement Zone with t-shirt and hat giveaways for pilots and of course plenty of opportunities to meet up and talk flying. In addition, be sure to join AOPA president Mark Baker for a Pilot Town Hall and pancake breakfast at First Wing Jet Center at Indianapolis Executive Airport (KTYQ). Details above.
On turn 4, The Engagement Zone pavilion is full of extreme activities that will keep fans of all ages entertained in between the races. Check out the AOPA drone cage, take selfies in front of our green screen repeater board with your choice of two backgrounds, and get a limited edition t-shirt if you join or renew your AOPA membership.
