Kent State University aeronautics students Helen Miller and Kenzie Alge are soaring to the finish line in the 2018 Air Race Classic.

This is the third consecutive year that Kent State pilots have taken part in the all-female, four-day race. This year the route started in Sweetwater, Texas and ended in Fryeburg, Maine. The course is set up for racers to experience changes in terrain, weather, winds, and airspace as they fly 2,600+ miles.

“I am so glad the college is able to provide such a great opportunity for our young women aviators to experience,” said Robert Sines, interim dean for Kent State’s College of Aeronautics and Engineering. “I couldn't be prouder of our Flying Flashes.”
