The Air Race Classic is the epicenter of women’s air racing, the ultimate test of piloting skill and aviation decision-making for female pilots of all ages and from all walks of life. (Photo courtesy of Air Race Classic.)
The Air Race Classic follows a different route every year. This year, we are flying from Grand Forks, North Dakota to Terre Haute, Indiana! The race route is chosen to present challenges to the Racers, provide a variety of learning opportunities, yet be within the endurance range of the slowest airplanes. Racers will experience changes in terrain, weather, winds, and airspace as they fly 2,500+ miles over four days in June. In some races, the route has the flyby timing location at one airport, while the Stop for fuel, refreshments and possible overnight stay is at another larger airport nearby.
During the race, the home page will be revised so that everyone can follow the racers as they make their way along the race course. You will be able to see where your favorite team is, and where they decide to spend the night. For more information, visit airraceclassic.org
