Registration is open for the 41st Air Race Classic (ARC), the annual all-women cross-country airplane race. More than 100 female pilots from around the world are expected to compete in the 2017 race, which begins Tuesday, June 20, 2017, in Frederick, Maryland, and ends Friday, June 23, 2017, in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
The oldest race of its kind in the United States, the ARC traces its roots to the 1929 Women's Air Derby, in which Amelia Earhart and 19 other female pilots raced from Santa Monica, California, to Cleveland, Ohio. That contest marked the beginning of women's air racing in the U.S.
