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
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
