We have seen this numerous times on the news and TV. Finally, the jaw-breaking event is coming to our shore!
Flugtag (pronounced floog-tag; noun) literally means “Flying Day” in German and because Red Bull Gives You Wings, this crazy fun filled event is brought to you by Red Bull to celebrate the art of flying some of the craziest machines built by YOU! All they provide is a little bit of guidance, a massive 6m high ramp, a body of water for your landing and the rest up to your imagination!

They are looking forward to plenty of outrageous and innovative machines for which Red Bull Flugtag has become famous for – and who knows, maybe we’ll put Singapore on the map with a new world record for the longest flight ! This record was just set in Mainz, Germany in May this year. For those with a competitive streak, the end goal is to beat the 69.79 metres set by the team ‘Die Rückkehr der Teichfighter’ (Translated: “The Return of the poolfighters”) in front of 150,000 people.
Red Bull Flugtag Singapore will happen in October 2012 – plenty of time to get your flying machines up in t(e air. Our secret location has sprouted wings and we’ll let you know once we ground it. Stay tuned for more details…
To all the aspiring ‘pilots’, good luck building your own wings!
