“I’m proud to be part of this historic race, which highlights the achievements of women in aviation and inspires a new generation of pilots.” —Mariah Ferber, co-pilot of Nashville Flight Training’s team, 1st Place Winner of the 2018 Air Race Classic
Special thanks to our 2019 sponsors
NFT supports the Air Race Classic because it is an all-volunteer, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with a mission of encouraging and educating current and future female pilots, increasing public awareness of general aviation, demonstrating women’s roles in aviation, and preserving and promoting the tradition of pioneering women in aviation. The race traces its roots to the 1929 Women’s Air Derby, in which Amelia Earhart and 19 other daring female pilots raced from Santa Monica, Calif., to Cleveland, Ohio. That contest, aka the Powder Puff Derby, marked the beginning of women’s air racing in the United States.
