Icarus Cup 2013

16th July 2013

Icarus Cup Following the success of the Royal Aeronautical Society's first Icarus Cup Competition in 2012, we are holding the second Human Powered Aircraft (HPA) Icarus Cup at Sywell Aerodrome, Northampton in July 2013. This year, the competition has been recognised as a Category 2 event by the FAI and therefore is seen as a national competition.

Come and Watch the Action!

Icarus Cup

Flying takes place from 5am - 9am and 7pm - 10pm daily. Please come along for free to support the competing teams.

Sponsored by Breitling, the competition is designed to progress the sport from occasional record attempts into a viable activity and will feature a number of challenges to test your design, aerodyamics and more. Taking place over a period of 9 days, competing teams will try and complete the following series of challenges designed to test all aspects of Human Powered Flight.
