Nothing is more exciting than flying an aerobatic airplane at 500 kilometers per hour over the Nevada desert. In the Renault Flight Race, the only closed airway chase in the world brings you the original and bloody racing pleasure. Those fearless pilots and their cars passed at a speed of just over ten meters above your head, as if within reach.

   One of them is Don Vito Wyprächtiger, a Swiss aerobatic pilot and Oris ambassador. He is the first non-US Formula One Gold race champion in the history of the Renault Flight Race.

This fall, Oris launched the sixth-generation limited edition watches of the Flying Races.
