The Icarus Trophy: Only the Brave Need Apply
The Icarus Trophy is for those adventurous souls who set their sights higher than the rest of us mere mortals. Higher, more distant and in the case of this year’s event, more remote than ever before. So strap your motor to your back and unfurl your wings above you, because thousands of miles of Brazilian wilderness are waiting to be explored and conquered. From way up above.
This Is Like No Rules Fighting for the Flying Brigade
The original bloke called Icarus didn’t survive his attempt to fly to the highest reaches of the stratosphere, but his courage and desire to feel the unbelievable sensation that is flight is the inspiration for this event. But this is not just a simple little leap off your local peak. It’s regarded as the toughest air race on Earth for a reason. There are no marker points to discover and direct you. There is only a start and finish line. In between are thousands of miles of untamed, magnificent and awe-inspiring natural wilderness. Within it, you can explore where you wish, as you please.
With high-tech satellite tracking equipment keeping an eye on you, feel secure enough to enjoy the isolation. The organisers won’t be pitching up to offer you a cold beer and a hot bath every evening, but they definitely will be there should you need emergency assistance. Who needs to reach the sun, when it’s far more challenging and exciting to reach inwards and see how brave and adventurous you can truly be? Welcome to the freedom you’ve always desired.
