VintageAirRally

1st November 2018, for six weeks.

Countdown

Ushuaia2USA mapFollowing in the footsteps of the pioneering flights of the 1920s, 15 vintage aircraft built in the early 1900s take to the air for a truly unique rally across the Americas. The VintageAirRally starts on the 1st November 2018 from Ushuaia, Argentina and finishes on the 14th December in USA. The Rally connects some of the most beautiful and evocative points, combining the challenge of flying these magnificent planes with the element of competition which was equally prevalent in those early days.

The Rally begins from the world’s southernmost airport, heading north to USA, journey’s end.

A rally such as this has never been done before in South America – and follows on from the successful 2016 VintageAirRally Crete2Cape.
