A Special Thank You

We have a couple big thank you's we would like to give!

First, Rockwell Collins - we thank you for the support! We love learning about Rockwell Collins and working with some really great people. 

Second, Custom Stripes - They donated the decals to the name "Evelyn"
Evelyn flew great! And her name looks brand new and beautiful! So thank you for the awesome work!






Back to KGFK

After flying Classic Racer #35 (Evelyn) over 4,200 miles in the past couple weeks, the Frozen Force made it back to Grand Forks safely.
We had such an amazing time in the Air Race Classic this year and we all feel so lucky to have been able to learn so much. Thank you again to everyone who has supported us through this race! We couldn't have done it without you and we really appreciate everyone!



Fun in Fryeburg!

They day after the race, our team woke up early to meet with judges and view our scoring sheets. Then we decided to take a short break from airplanes and went out to enjoy Maine! 


From zip lining, to mountain rollercoasters, to spectacular views and amazing food, we had the best time exploring and celebrating the end of the race!




The Results

The Results are in...
11th place in the collegiate division and 21st overall!!

We were so happy to be in Fryeburg, Maine after navigating through all of the obstacles that this year's race had in store. We are so proud of all of the other teams and we had an amazing time celebrating the end of the race with all of the other amazing women!

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.
