The Freedom Seat 

Women in the fastest lanes


Many pilots enjoy  the thrill and fun of air-racing, everything from pylon racing to cross-country air racing. 

In WOMEN AIR RACERS, I share the history of the development of air races, and the participation of female pilots in them from their inception to the present day. From the 1929 Powder Puff Derby to today's annual Air Race Classic, women pilots continue to challenge themselves to go far and fast.
