Dun Laoghaire Harbour, Sunday 20th May
After seven long years, Red Bull Flugtag lands back in Ireland for some more foolish flying feats! Located in Dublin's Dun Laoghaire harbour this May, it's a guaranteed fun day out for all! Who will attempt to defy gravity? Well, it could be you! If you think you can impress the rest with your flair, fashion and flight you could become a Flugtag champion!
Red Bull Flugtag challenges the brave and brainy to design, build and pilot homemade flying machines off a 6-metre high flight deck, in the hope of soaring into the wild blue yonder…or more often, to plunge 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. These criteria have inspired flying tacos, prehistoric pterodactyls, and even Snoopy and the gang to grace the Flugtag flight decks!
