What is Flugtag?

Red Bull Flugtag challenges the brave and brainy to design, build and pilot home-made flying machines off a 6 meters high flight deck in hopes of soaring into the wild blue yonder…or more often, plunging into the waters below.


Flugtag, which means “flying day” in German, pushes the envelope of human-powered flight, but competitors need more than airtime to reach the podium.


Teams are judged on three criteria: flight distance, creativity of the craft, and showmanship. This criteria has inspired flying tacos, prehistoric pterodactyls, winnebagos with wings and even Snoopy and the gang to grace the Flugtag flight decks!


Since the first Red Bull Flugtag took place in Vienna, Austria, in 1991, almost 100 Flugtags have been held around the globe.
