1911 Heliopolis meeting?

Hi Flugsport and welcome to the forum!

To my understanding the 1910 meeting was the only one in Heliopolis. Even in February the desert climat with dust, thermals and sandstorms made it difficult for the airplanes of that time.

Except in Germany the European Wright operations were more or less dead in 1911.
