More than 70 people were also hurt in September, when one of the racing planes crashed near spectators.
The Reno Air Races Association president said today a panel of experts will help with safety efforts for next year’s event.
Officials also have to get a number of permits in order to hold the event again.
The unexplained crash came midway through a race at the popular aviation competition when a 74-year-old stunt pilot landed in a crowd of spectators.
Pieces of the plane flew through the crowd, cutting off limbs and slicing through skulls.
