- Aces High Extreme Air Racing Leage (AHEAR) supports races that run once a week, with a different course and different aircraft each week. There are typically about 30 pilots competing, and the courses are much more exciting than could be implemented in real life, with portions of the courses going under bridges and through hangers. Do you like to race your car, your boat . . . your office chair at work? Did you like to race other kids on your bike? If so, this is the sport for you. You start her up when you hear "Gentlemen, start your engines!" Then, when the starting cannon goes off, you firewall it, and you're off -- wingtip to wingtip and nose to tail with dozens of other racers, all looking for that fastest line. It's a rush!
