The only Fly-In for Electric Aircraft in Europe!

Two years ago, the inauguration of «smartflyerchallenge»,

Europe’s First Electric Fly-In took place at LSZG Grenchen Airport in

Switzerland. It was the first happening of that kind in the entire world.

Aircraft builders/constructors from all over

Europe have joined in to show their projects. It was the first time that the

community of electric powered aircraft came together to celebrate the era of

sustainable and more efficient ways of flying.


We are very proud to report that FAI CIACA was one

of the main actors establishing the extremely successful platform for Electric

Aircraft Innovations.


This year the Electric Fly-In has again created

a big attention. An unanimously number of visitors, fans and aircraft have

joined this event from all over Europe.


The «smartflyerchallenge» has this year

offered an E-Trophy at the Swiss Regional Airport Grenchen. The three aircraft

with the longest electrically powered flight to Grenchen were rewarded with Prize money.


The competition was an immediate success and the surprise was that three different types of aircraft were awarded.


The President of FAI CIACA, Alfons Hubmann has importantly

supported the organization of this event of New Power Sources and New



At the end, the «smartflyerchallenge» has become a real showcase of excellence in E-Aviation. We are sure that the 4th smartflyer-challenge on 12. and 13. September 2020 will bring even more interesting flying machines to Grenchen Airport.
