Summary
On this day we celebrates those pioneers who have made advances in the field of human-powered flight.

National Ride the Wind Day commemorates the awarding of the first prize for human-powered flight.

The Kremer prizes were established in 1959 by the industrialist Henry Kremer and adwarded to pioneers of human-powered flight.

The first Kremer prize of £50,000 was won on August 23rd 1977 by Dr. Paul MacCready when his Gossamer Condor, piloted by Bryan Allen, was the first human-powered aircraft to fly a figure eight around two markers one half mile apart, starting and ending the course at least 10 feet (3.0 m) above the ground.

There are currently three Kremer Prizes that have not yet been awarded, for a total of £150,000:

  • 26 mile Marathon course in under an hour (£50,000),
  • Sporting aircraft challenge stressing maneuverability (£100,000),
  • Local challenge that is limited to youth groups (under 18 years) in the UK
