Nominated participants for the Berblinger Flight Competition 2011

Of the 36 applications received, 24 have been provisionally approved for participation in the competition. Actual participation depends on whether the jury is in possession of the necessary technical and legal documents and the flight authorization by March 15, 2011.

Applications have been received from companies and institutes, but also from private individuals and research facilities. The applicants are from Germany, Slovenia, The Czech Republic, France and Italy. The competition will be judged by an independent jury comprising representatives of the aerospace industry, universities, research institutes and the town of Ulm.

The Berblinger Flight Competition 2011 is therefore an international event demonstrating the versatility that could determine the future of aviation.
