AeroVelo, a Toronto based engineering team has won the AHS Igor I. Sikorsky Human Powered Helicopter Challenge and its $250,000 prize. On Thursday, June 13, 2013, Atlas, their human-­powered helicopter, completed a recordbreaking flight lasting 64 seconds and reaching a height of 3.3 metres.

RaptoBike is a small but proud sponsor of this project and I want to congratulate Todd, Cameron and the rest of the team in achieving this amazing succes!
