Gold Cup Air Rally

The annual Gold Cup Air Rally is NOT an air race but is a fun and challenging cross country air rally. 

All  99’s and other female pilots are invited to join us on the Gold Cup Air Rally. 

Don’t have an airplane, no problem, we can try to match you up with a pilot and airplane.
