And.....TAKEOFF!

We just left Sweetwater, TX! It was a wonderful morning as we watched all the other teams leave. Best of luck to everyone - we know the weather is going to cause a good challenge this year.
Lastly, we want to thank everyone! It has been so much work to get to this point, and we couldn't have done it without you! With your encouragement, advice, and support, we're confident that this year will be a good race! And to all our sponsors - Wow, $3500 - we are beyond thankful! https://undalumni.org/ARC18
Follow us - We'll be posting all kinds of fun updates!



Feeling Grateful

Race day is today, and as we wait to depart, we feel full of gratitude for the women who came before us, who fought to be recognized as pilots in the military and proved to men that we can fly. Thousands of women over the years have sacrificed, to pave the road for the girls to come. The stories we’ve all heard about the hardships they faced give us the fire to fly to the best of our piloting abilities! Our team, with all of these inspiring women who will depart to pilot a 2,400 mile air race, continue that work today. Keep flying and keep inspiring, and one day hopefully half of our industry will be women! Good luck to all of the great friends we’ve made here. Big love and strong tailwinds.

We have arrived!

We had such a great stop at Oklahoma University's Aviation school on our way down to Sweetwater! We had a chance to visit our pilot Jenna's twin sister who is a CFI there. A great place with even better people; thanks for everything!

We are now safely in Sweetwater, Texas getting excited for the race to start!

AND in other exciting news, we have officially passed the halfway point in our fundraising! If you would like to help us reach our goal of $1/mile please,

Getting Prepared and Excited for the 2018 Air Race!

We have lots of exciting updates since our last post! When you last heard from us, we were still deciding on new team members.  We now have two new teammates: Emily Hartley, ground coordinator, and Monique McAnally, navigator!

We're happy to welcome these exceptional pilots on to the Frozen Force! Since then, we've all been working together to prepare our new Piper Archer airplane for the upcoming race.  We've met with Fred Remer, our weather support, and others to get everything all ready to go! Other activities our team has had fun with includes working with girl scouts in Fargo, ND, to expose the girls to women in STEM.  Our co-pilot, Dakotah, was able to make it to Reno for the International Women in Aviation Conference, where she was able to meet with other air racers.
We'd also like to congratulate our Pilot, Jenna, on passing her Multi-Engine Flight Instructor checkride this Spring! 

Coming up is our handicap flight tomorrow, and then the race starts in only a couple of weeks. 

Blue skies and tailwinds to all those who follow us, we always appreciate the support and any donations we receive!

New Air Race Members

Two of our lovely teammates, Dana and Emma, have moved on from UND to other exciting opportunities.  This means that we have two spots to fill on the team! Yesterday, Jenna and Dakotah interviewed ten new applicants and accepted two.  We have made our decision, so stay tuned to hear the results later this week!

Lots of Updates!

It's been a while since we have posted! We have a bunch of exciting news to share.

The 2017 Air Race Classic results are.....
UND Frozen Force came in #8 overall, and #3 collegiately!!


Dana, Emma, and Jenna worked extremely hard to fly a fair race to the best of their piloting abilities! We are so grateful for all of the support we've received along the way from many people and organizations; we could not have done it without each and every one of you!
