The Wild Sushi: Red Bull Flugtag Vancouver 2006

What is ‘Flugtag’?

Posted in About Red Bull Flugtag by adrienne on the June 22nd, 2006

Flugtag is a contest where teams compete to build human-powered flying machines.  (‘Flugtag’ means ‘flying day’ in German).  The aircraft launch off a pier into a body of water in front of tens of thousands of spectators.  Teams are scored based on distance, creativity and showmanship.

The Red Bull Flugtag events started in 1991 in Austria.  Since then, over 50 Flugtag events have been held all over the world.  Vancouver hosts Canada’s first Flugtag on August 19, 2006.
