The Green Speed Cup is back in 2018. It will be held in Strausberg (EDAY) again from 08th until 10th of June. After valuable feedback from the community last year we made some changes to the rules. Besides minor changes, we have decided to make changes to the takeoff order if necessary to increase flight safety. This has been a problem in the past, when aicraft with high average speeds take off behind slower aicraft. Furthermore, the tasks for electric aircraft are more tailored to the design specdifications. Since many electric aircaft are thought of as trainers, the distance is dramatically been reduced and touch and gos are part of the task to prove practical suitability.


The new rules can be found here and the official invitation including registation details and prizes can be found here. We are excited for a great Green Speed Cup 2018 and hope to see you there.
