The Airventure Cup is the World's largest Cross Country Air Race. 2012 is the 15th running of this race. The Airventure Cup Race is flown to unite aviation's rich history with its promising future.
The race course has brought together some of aviation's most historic places, originally from Kill Devil Hills, to the home of the Wright Brothers, Dayton, Ohio, and onto the current home of Sport Aviation, the EAA Airventure Fly-In Convention in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. This year the race returns once again to Mitchell, SD.
2012 is the 3rd year the Airventure Cup will be run from the Mitchell, South Dakota airport, (KMHE), and we are looking forward to a safe and exciting race this year.
Cross-country air racing is a fun and exciting sport for any pilot. Founded in 1998, this has become one of the most successful racing events in aviation.
