2,648 MILES, 4 DAYS!
Corbi Bulluck and Ramona Banks will be flying Corbi's Piper Dakota in the 41th Annual Air Race Classic, an intense, all-woman, air race which will take place June 20-23, 2017. We'll start in Frederick MD and finish in Santa Fe, NM four days later.
We’ll be known as Classic Racer #26 - the Dakota FlyGirls.
Although the race is just a four-day event, we've spent the last six months preparing for it.
We are very excited about sharing our adventure with our friends and family. Once the race begins, you will be able to follow our progress minute-by-minute!
