2017 Indy Air Race

We are excited to partner again with the Sport Air Racing League to host the 7th Annual Indy Air Race.  The Air Race is combined with the Open House and Fly-In to allow more people to experience the fun and excitement of the Indy Air Race.  This exciting cross-country air race brings contestants from all over the country to Indianapolis to compete.  It's a fun and safe experience open to any GA pilot. 

We Need Your Help!

We depend on the generous contributions of sponsors to make this event a reality! All donations are made directly to Down Syndrome Indiana (DSI), as we strive to make the event completely self-funded. DSI uses these funds for programs to help individuals with Down Syndrome achieve independence and inclusion in their community. DSI also ensures that those living with Down Syndrome have a voice with policymakers and works to increase positive awareness and understanding with the public at-large. 

In order to make this a reality - we need partners who are willing to donate their support monetarily, through donation of items for our raffle / silent auction, and also through the donation of goods and services needed to make the event a success.
