We know of someone who with the help of all the neighborhood kids spent days as a child building a plane on the top of their garage roof unfortunately their choice of creative materials could have sunk a ship. The result? The virginal flight was a disaster, and cannot be discussed further on this site. Although if this sounds like you, then the challenge is on!
It’s the end of aviation as we know it – Red Bull Flugtag is back, flying high… not dry – so fasten your seatbelts and breathe normally for the 9th of December 2012 sees the return of Flugtag to Cape Town. Trolley dollies, Co-Pilots, flying pigs and home-made helicopters take off from a 6m platform at the V&A Waterfront into the harbor waters below.
The Challenge: Red Bull Flugtag challenges teams of everyday people to build homemade, human powered flying machines “We select participants based on originality and personality. This is a whole new medium for creative expression and performance. Make us laugh, make us cry, make us scream your name. Now show us more of that passion through your application to win over the selection committee.” The air crafts are judged not only on their flight’s distance, but creativity and showmanship as well.
