CRESWELL, Ore. -- Kyle Bushman has made it past hundreds of other applicants and is now one round of away from working on a team in the Vintage Air Rally.

Bushman restores antique aircraft at Ragwood Refactory. The 24-year-old says he applied for the rally to show the competition isn't just for older people.

He's applying for the USHUAIA2USA rally held in March next year. Fifteen teams are accepted in total. They spend 42 days flying over 19 countries, traveling more than 9,000 miles. The rally starts in Argentina and ends in Florida.

Bushman is hoping to make the final cut as a mechanical engineer for one of the 15 aircraft. He'll find out if he made it on December 1st.
