Two Kansas pilots are competing in a unique competition this summer as they take turns piloting a plane in a race that lasts four days. It's called the 2015 Air Race Classic, and it's only open to women. In the meantime, they’re teaching young girls about aviation. More from Abigail Wilson, of member station KMUW in Wichita. 

The 2015 Air Race Classic runs from June 22nd through June 25.
