The Gordon Bennett Cup is the most famous aviation event in the world. The objective of the race is simple: to fly the furthest distance from the start (Ebnat-Kappel, Switzerland) using the open airspace available.
This international gas balloon competition was initiated in 1906 by the adventurer James Gordon Bennett. This race is the 56th, 106 years after the first one.
