The Reno Air Racing Association has received a conditional approval to hold its annual races, provided it obtains insurance coverage of at least $100 million.The races should be held from September 12 to 16.

The RARA will also respond to seven security recommendations made last month by the NTSB. An in-house panel of aviation experts was also created to investigate the incident and come up with more recommendations to improve the safety of the event.

These increased safety measures are the result of the tragic accident of September 16, 2011, that cost the life of Jimmy Leeward and eleven spectators, while injuring another 69.
