The Air Race Classic is an annual all women's air race approximately 2,400 miles in length. The competition objective is to fly the "perfect cross country". Each aircraft is given a "handicap" ground speed. The contestants who beat their personal handicap by the largest margin win. LeTourneau University's female students who compete in this race want to showcase who we are as a University and what we fly. They fly the Air Race Classic with the intent of bringing honor to Christ.
