Schneider Cup 2.0 ?
After the smashing success with the Red Bull Air Races, the Austrian company announces a reprise of the legendary Schneider Cup Trophy.
This cup, which was once the meeting place for the world’s fastest piston engined powered air racer is going to live up again. Several companies as well as countries have already announced their interest in such a highly competitive and crowd pleasing event.
Today 2 once great manufacturers which were deeply involved in this historic event announced their comeback and also presented a mock-up of their planned and already under construction racing aircrafts. As can be seen, the Schneider Cup 2.0 will be once again exclusively only for aircraft which have to take off and land on water and have to be powered by piston engines.
