their air race experiences. Hear first hand about Will's flying at Reno including a video presentation that will

Reno Air Race Unlimited Pilot - Will Whiteside
15 years as a Flight Instructor, Corporate Pilot, Airline Pilot and Air Race Pilot paid off last year at the Reno National Championship Air Races.
In his 5th year racing Reno, Will has entered a very exclusive club flying the highly modified North American P-51D Mustang named "VOODOO."
The 500 MPH club is made up of a very small group of race pilots who have gone over 500 Miles Per Hour on the Unlimited racecourse behind a propeller. He will discuss the challenges, rewards and pitfalls of pushing a WWII fighter to its limit and beyond.
