The Hayward Air Rally is celebrating its 51st anniversary in 2015 with a one day Air Rally to Bend Oregon.
Over the 50 year history of the Hayward Air Rally, originally known as the Hayward-Las Vegas Air Race, the event has been a single day of flying and competition. The exception was the 2014 50th anniversary flight to Oshkosh, which took three days.
The Hayward Air Rally gives aviators a chance to test their flight planning, navigational skills, pilotage skills and to have a fun day flying. The Hayward Air Rally is a 500-mile VFR cross-country challenge that is flown in two legs. This year the ultimate destination is Bend, Oregon. The two legs are HWD (Hayward, Ca) to RDD (Redding, Ca) and then RDD (Redding, Ca) to BDN (Bend, Or). The Hayward Air Rally It is NOT a speed event or a race. Scoring is determined by fuel management, time management and navigational skills. This year’s Hayward Air Rally will be held on 11 June through 13 June 2015. All types of aircraft types are accepted including Light Sport Aircraft.
