On September 11 and 12, the canton of Solothurn will play host to the Electrifly-In Switzerland. In so doing, Grenchen Airport will become the European meeting point for electric and hybrid aircraft for the fifth occasion.
For the third time, flight teams have been invited to take part in the eTrophy. The registered aircraft will be competing across three newly created categories: electric aircraft, hybrid aircraft and gliders. The prizes are sponsored by WATERjet AG.
As part of the event, a panel discussion has been planned on the subject of “Generation Y – the next step for aviation”. This will cover various aspects of modern aviation.
According to the information available, the organizing committee will be collaborating with the Rega training base in Grenchen to successfully stage Electrifly-In Switzerland, which means that the Rega hangar will also be available to use over the course of the two days of the event. In Grenchen, Rega carries out training flights for rescue pilots and emergency doctors, among other responsibilities.
