At the 19th running of the AirVenture Cup Cross-Country Air Race which took place at 9am on July 24, 2016, from Mitchell, SD to Wausau, WI, with several intermediate turning points creating a course of 400+ nautical miles, Mike Patey dominated the race with an average speed of 438.02 miles per hour. Only one other aircraft in the 19 year history of the race has finished the course with an average speed higher than 400 mph. Mike’s plane now has the distinction of being the fastest aircraft in any category in AirVenture Cup Race history by a significant margin. The race is open to a wide variety of pilots and aircraft, from sport pilots to astronauts, and J-3 Cubs to Turbine Legends.
