  1. This is about an event in June, but the Dept. of Economic Development is looking now for local people to help the pilots flying in. I got this email today:

    Frederick to welcome air racers

    The organizers of the 2010 Air Race Classic are in need of community liasions for race teams flying in the air race which ends here at the Frederick Municpal Airport on Thursday June 24th and Friday June 25th.

    The racers will be in Frederick the weekend of June 26, 27, 28, attending race events. Liaisons will be matched up with one or more racers and be on-call to assist if needed and would be asked to provide a cell phone number to be available for any last minute requests, transportation between events or emergencies. Racers begin arriving at FDK (Frederick Airport) Thursday June 24th and finish June 25th, spending the next few days experiencing Frederick.

    This exciting event starts in Fort Myers, Florida and ends in Historic Frederick at FDK, celebrating 100 years of licensed women pilots. For more information on the race, visit their website

    If you are interested in representing Frederick and assisting the racers as they visit our historic City, please contact The City of Frederick, Economic Development at 301-600-6360.
