Red Bull Flugtag Is Landing Back In The UK

Taking Applications Now For The "Flying" Event

Don your pilot goggles, mount your wacky flying machine and prepare to get wet… Red Bull Flugtag is back in the UK for the first time since 2008 and looking for budding pilots.

The world's craziest festival of flight will be taking-off at Roundhay Park, Leeds on 17th July 2011. Once again, Red Bull is seeking to find the best in amateur aviation from all corners of the UK; outrageous innovators willing to design, construct and "fly" their very own man-powered aircraft!

From the most advanced record-breaking flying machines to those that have no hope whatsoever, all designs are welcome as entrants are judged on distance, creativity and showmanship. The teams will not only need the most inventive and harebrained designers but also the most fearless pilots prepared to fly their zany creations across the Yorkshire sky (or not…). Accompanied by their wild display crews, a true Flugtag flight team will be able to whip the adoring crowds into a frenzy.

So if you think you've got what it takes to soar through the skies over Leeds while your ground crew entertains the screaming crowds, download a copy of the design manual and application forms from the Flugtag website.

There is no entry fee, so get your thinking caps on and make sure you submit your daring and downright dastardly Flugtag entry by Friday May 13.

Those that don't fancy taking the plunge, but do fancy a frivolous family day out can apply for tickets for the event. Entry is free but a ticket is required and all tickets will be distributed via Red Bull Flugtag website from early June.
