The Air Race Classic is the epicenter of women’s air racing. Race teams, consisting of at least two women pilots, must fly VFR during daylight hours only and are given four days to make flybys at each en route stop and then land at the terminus. The race routes change each year and are at least 2,400 statute miles in length. Each plane is flown in race config-uration to determine its handicap speed – and the challenge for each race team is to achieve actual ground speeds as far over the handicap speed as possible. The pilots strategize to play the elements, holding out for better weather, winds, etc. The objective is to fly your “perfect” cross-country. In this type of race, the official stand-ings are not known until the final entrant has crossed the finish line.
The 2017 Annual General Meeting was held on Thursday May 10, 2018 at the Airport Administration Building.
