New Air Race Classic Sponser

Earlier this month the ARC put out a press release announcing a new sponsor. LiveATC.net will be providing radio coverage straight from the racers themselves for the next three years! This is such a great idea! Super excited not only to be able to follow the racer's progress, but hear them as well. It's almost like being in the cockpit with them. 

LiveATC.net Signs on as Sponsor for Air Race Classic

"LiveATC.net will put listeners in the cockpit of the Air Race Classic (ARC) race planes, as they hear the racers maneuver for position, line up for flybys, execute high-speed low passes over each timing line, and then either zoom off to the next stop or stop the clock, cool their engines down and land for fuel and a well-needed rest."
"LiveATC’s air traffic control monitoring will give Air Race Classic racers, their fans and their supporters a great way to follow them during the race, in real time,” said ARC President Lara Gaerte.
“LiveATC.net is pleased to sponsor Air Race Classic and bring live over-the-air radio calls from race pilots to a global audience,” said founder Dave Pascoe. “As a pilot myself, I believe strongly in the ARC mission and am excited that we can leverage our global ATC monitoring technology to help bring attention to the race. ARC continues a long tradition of women’s air racing, and we’re excited to be a part of it.”
At each location, LiveATC.net will beam live audio of the racers’ communications with air-traffic control, the timers on the ground and one another to a global audience of pilots, aviation enthusiasts, family and friends."
