Cumberland, WI (PRWEB) July 01, 2014

Local small airplane pilot Sandra Randall soar across the country competing in the 2014 Air Race Classic (ARC) this summer, which begins June 16th in Concord, California and spans over 2,338 nautical miles.

Racers will undergo briefings, flight planning, and fly­by study prior to take off. The race is an annual all­ female­ pilot air race in which pilots race against their own best speed in the plane of their choice. There are, however, limitations: the aircraft must be stock small airplanes and have their handicap speed identified with a check­ pilot. They will zoom through ten intermediate stops in four days enroute to New Cumberland, Pennsylvania in the quest for the fastest time. This is the second Air Race Classic for Randall.

The ARC carries on the long tradition of womens air racing that dates back to 1929. Air racing became popular in the 1920s, but women pilots were forbidden to race against the men in that era, so the ladies started their own. This years ARC will have fifty-two teams and over one hundred female pilots compete for the championship title.

Sandra is flying the ARC again this year, For the challenge, the pace, the new experience, to meet and make new friends, self-satisfaction and contentment and to help a friend.
