Nashville Flight Training’s team won 1ST PLACE in last year’s Air Race Class – our first time to compete. This year, we’re offering a unique opportunity for companies, organizations and individuals to sponsor our 2019 team. So get ready to fly with us!

What Is the Air Race Classic?
More than 100 women pilots will take off on the adventure of a lifetime when the flag drops to mark the start of the 43rd annual Air Race Classic, an annual all-female aviation event stretching 2,500 miles across 11 states and provinces, June 18 – 21. The race begins in Jackson, Tenn., and ends in Welland, Ontario.

Why Sponsor Nashville Flight Training’s Team?
Last year our team (Mariah and Paige, right) flew a Cessna 172R to a 1ST PLACE victory! Sponsorship provides exposure to an audience of wide-ranging demographics and interests, most of whom are high-income earners. Publicity and media attention surrounding our team’s win helped raise awareness and brand recognition for both our flight school and those who supported us. See below for more details on sponsorship levels and benefits.

“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


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.
