About Air Race E
Air Race E is a revolutionary form of Air Racing as we know it with the first ever all-electric airplane race. The future of aviation is in green energy and Air Race E are setting the marker for future developments in electric aviation with a world first airplane race never seen before. 8 planes race wingtip-to-wingtip in pure exhilarating action around an oval circuit. The spectacular, quick, action-packed race will see speeds of 400 km/h (250 mph) around a tight circuit just 1.5km end-to-end. The first race series will go ahead in 2022.
Air Race E is also the only organization in the world that has already brought together all the necessary ingredients for an international electric air race, all under one umbrella. We have the prototype airplane, a dedicated test center where the race planes are being engineered, and the qualified test pilots and certified race pilots raring to go.
As part of the world’s first all-electric airplane race being created, we are also working with the Formula Air Racing Association which sanction new race formulas and works with other key bodies and stakeholders.
We made a huge stride forward in 2019 as Air Race E partnered with Airbus as our Global Official Founding Partner. Helping to drive the development and adoption of cleaner, faster, and more technologically advanced electric engines that can be applied to urban air mobility vehicles and, eventually, commercial aircraft.
The team behind Air Race E is the same team that brought the successful Air Race 1 series and other high-profile aviation events to market. Our team are widely considered the leader in the segment and we have unrivalled global experience in the organization and promotion of true air racing.
