Make sure to be in Sydney for the Red Bull Flugtag this November, where creative and daring competitors from all over the world arrive with their own homebuilt flying machines in the hopes to fly high. Witness the groundbreaking spectacle near our Sydney CBD apartments accommodation!
Red Bull “Flugtag", which means “flying day” in German, aims to push the boundaries of human-powered flight, inviting participants from all over to create their own flying machine and challenge it against the rest. It’s been held in 35 different cities with more than 150 Red Bull Flugtag events in total since 1992, where it took place for the first time in Vienna, Austria. The world-record still stands at 78.6 metres, which was reached at the Red Bull Flugtag in 2013 in Long Beach, California. This year, participants will be going head-to-head with each other and aiming for the skies to beat the five-year world-record, and it’s going to be one of the most entertaining spectacles in Sydney this spring.
At the 2018 Red Bull Flugtag in Sydney, competing teams will take flight off a 6-metre-high platform in the hopes to fly the longest distance, taking place at The Domain. Come along to see them fly high or plummet into the waters below! Teams will be judged on flight distance, creativity of their flying machine, and showmanship. The Red Bull Flugtag is FREE to spectate, so don’t miss it on November 10.
