Red Bull Flugtag is all about 'human-powered' flight. Teams of four design, build and 'fly' their home-made 'craft' off a 22ft high deck extending into the water. Each team is judged on 3 parameters: flight distance, creativity of their build and showmanship.
Red Bull Flugtag is an event organized by Red Bull in which competitors attempt to fly home-made, size- and weight-limited, human-powered flying machines. The flying machines are usually launched off a pier about 30 feet high into the sea or suitably sized reservoir of water. Most competitors enter for the entertainment value, and the flying machines rarely fly at all. Red Bull Flugtag has been celebrated around the world since 1991.
