Redbull Flugtag


Exact Publicity was the Talent and PR Lead (Chicago) for the Red Bull Flugtag.

Red Bull Flugtag is an event organized by Red Bull in which competitors attempt to fly home-made, human-powered flying machines, size-limited to around 10 metres, weight-limited to approximately 150 kilograms. The flying machines are usually launched off a pier about 9 metres (30 ft) high into the sea or body of water.

The first Red Bull Flugtag competition was held in 1991 in Vienna, Austria. It was such a success that it has been held every year since and in over 35 cities all over the world. Anyone is eligible to compete in the Flugtag event. To participate, each team must submit an application and their contraption must meet the criteria set forth by Red Bull.
