Air Race Classic Puts Women Aviators on Santa Fe's Radar

Jun 27, 2017

118 women on 54 flight teams competed in the annual Air Race Classic, which concluded at the Santa Fe Municipal Airport last Friday.

The annual cross-country Air Race Classic, one of the largest competitions in the world of women's aviation, soared from Frederick, Maryland, to the Santa Fe Municipal Airport last week. KSFR's Dylan Syverson reported from the tarmac as the race was winding down last Friday.

CORRECTION: This story originally appeared with a photograph of a (very impressive) L-139 Albatros jet, implying that said jet had raced in the ARC. It did not, nor did any jet engine-driven aircraft. Apologies for the error. —DS
