At Ada Ciganlija on June 23, 2019, Belgradians will have a unique opportunity to experience the adrenaline rush of the world’s most entertaining flying spectacle – Red Bull Flugtag
Summer is a period for excitement. One of the oldest events in the Red Bull organization returns to Serbia after 6 years. Familiar with the adrenaline adventures, know very well what is being talked about. Why? The Red Bull Flugtag is probably the most recognizable and most exciting event with the Red Bull stamp. This year the citizens of the Serbian capital will have a truly unusual opportunity to host one of the eight Flugtag’s that will be held in 2019 throughout the world.
How was this original idea invented? When you say Flugtag, you think of a German word meaning “flying day”. However, when the first aircraft left the Vienna Platform in 1992, flying never stopped. So far, Red Bull Flugtag has built its famous platform for flying in over 150 cities around the world and has gathered hundreds of teams of crazy geniuses and creative people. The previous and the first Red Bull Flugtag held in Belgrade, where 37 airplanes flew, recorded a visit of over 150 thousand people. Many still remember this record-breaking hot day of June 2013. Adrenaline experiences of this type are never forgotten.
Those who flew from the Red Bull Flugtag platform say that the feeling is indescribable, and many people have this flight on their “bucket” list.
What makes this event so specific? The task is to fly in the planes made by the teams in the garage, without engines, accumulators and catapults. The tools are only wind, human power, and genius or craziness, depends on how you place it.
In addition to creativity, the length of the flight and the performance on the platforms are estimated before the flight, and in addition to good fun, the goal is also to fly 78.64m, because it is the world record that on September 12, 2013, was broken by the “Chicken Whisperers” in California, in front of the 110,000 enthusiastic viewers.
Red Bull Flugtag requires skill and courage. Each participant is invited to design, create, build, assemble, fold and fly a machine from a 6-meter-high Red Bull platform with its team! Whether the teams will be able to reach the heights or will end at great depths – remains to be seen on June 23, 2019, at the Red Bull Flugtag platform at Ada Ciganlija.
