As many people know I do want to be involved in air racing one day as a pilot. I would love to be able to fly the course with the best in the world. I have been working as a carpet cleaner for DeltonaFLCarpetCleaning.com. I will continue to work with them and move up the chain to save up to buy myself a plane of my choice. I am very good at saving money and truly believe that I can save enough over the next ten year to get into air racing.
My goals turn into reality often and I know this is possible. Although I understand that it will take me a long time to save up the cash to afford to jump into the biplane racing. In the meantime I will be training at the Orlando Sanford International Airport. With a few more months of training I will be able to fly on my own. I can always rent planes until I can afford to use my own.
Air racing started back into 1909 in Paris France. Although at the time there weren't near as many pilots in the world. With technology, so much further behind than it is today you can expect that the race didn't last long. However, it wasn’t expected to last long at all. Ten laps of a course just over a kilometer long each and the winner was the plane that could stay in the air the longest. The winner completed just over half the laps.
While air racing went on to change very rapidly with advancements in WW2. In 1919 just ten years after the first air race ever the transcontinental air race was held with a 2700-mile course. With massive advancements in technology because of the second world war air racing became much more popular. Nearly 200,000 people attended the five-day National Championship Air Raves in the Reno Stead Airport.
