Tennessee Flight Training’s team won 1ST PLACE the first time we competed in the Air Race Classic! This year, we’re offering another unique opportunity for companies, organizations and individuals to sponsor our team and support women in aviation. The skies are calling!

What Is the Air Race Classic?
More than 100 women pilots will take off on the adventure of a lifetime when the flag drops to mark the start of the Air Race Classic, an annual all-female aviation event stretching 2,500 miles across multiple states, June 21-24, 2022. The race begins in Lakeland, FL, and ends in Terre Haute, IN, with a nearby stop in Tullahoma, TN.

Why Sponsor Nashville Flight Training’s Team?
Sponsorship provides exposure to an audience of wide-ranging demographics and interests, most of whom are high-income earners. Publicity and media attention surrounding our team’s win helped raise awareness and brand recognition for both our flight school and those who supported us.

“It thrills us to have these ladies represent the Tennessee Flight Training family. Their skills have proven that they are some of the safest, most knowledgeable pilots in Middle Tennessee, and we couldn’t be more proud to send them to this race as representatives of Nashville’s aviation community.” —Chris Erlanson, President, Tennessee Flight Training

TFT supports the Air Race Classic because it is an all-volunteer, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with a mission of encouraging and educating current and future female pilots, increasing public awareness of general aviation, demonstrating women’s roles in aviation, and preserving and promoting the tradition of pioneering women in aviation. The race traces its roots to the 1929 Women’s Air Derby, in which Amelia Earhart and 19 other daring female pilots raced from Santa Monica, Calif., to Cleveland, Ohio. That contest, aka the Powder Puff Derby, marked the beginning of women’s air racing in the United States.
