This Schneider Trophy website has been created for everyone that has an interest in early Aviation, and more specifically the 12 events that advanced aviation from under 50 mph to over 400 mph. Winning any of these 12 events gave bragging rights to nations, made heroes of their pilots and thrills to millions. These were the SCHNEIDER TROPHY races.

We continue to search the internet to find relevant information and sites that will allow the surfer to easily locate information about these great events, both the original events and those created in various scales to replicate history and these incredible aircraft. If anyone has any information or sites we have left out, please contact the site administrator so we can continue to build the best source site for the Schneider Trophy information and events.

Katie Tribute 2018
My lovely wife of 46 years, Katie Martin, was a very important person, not only to me but to the industry she loved as much as I.  Besides being my partner in life, co-founder of Bob Martin RC Models, she also was the energy that kept our businesses going and my inspiration in all endeavors. She served as an AMA Club president twice securing a permanent flying site for that club, was editor of several newsletters and selected as National Newsletter Editor of the year, elected to Hawk of the Year, most distinguished club member, created the graphics for this website and co-founder of the Schneider-Cup Re-enactment and London Bridge Seaplane Classic. She is on the AMA Walk of Fame. We lost her in Dec. 2010. As a Tribute to this great lady, individuals and clubs around the world are staging an annual fly in June of each year.  If you would like to join in, click on the banner above and contact the thread moderator for more information.
