    2019 Women's Air Race Classic

    The Women's Air Race Classic is an annual event that has been taking place for 90 years. This four day, twenty-five hundred-mile journey starts in Tennessee and ends in Canada and is an opportunity to encourage the pioneering nature of many young female aviators. Historic women in aviation including Louise Thaden, Phoebe Omlie and Amelia Earhart have competed in the prestigious race. 

    Sponsoring the Lewis University Air Race Classic Team allows our students, Megan Shaffer, and Mickael Ashworth, to participate in this historic race. This is vital for the continued development of our program and will help to keep Lewis at the forefront of promoting women in the field of aviation.
