BTi's involvement in Red Bull Flugtag Competition
BTi has assisted in the coordination of ground logistics for the Red Bull Flugtag Competition. The event is currently taking place in and around Sydney.
“Red Bull Flugtag challenges the brave and brainy to design, build and pilot home-made flying machines off a 6-metre-high flight deck, in hopes of soaring into the wild blue yonder, or more often, plunging into the waters below”.
“Teams are judged on three criteria: flight distance, creativity of the craft, and showmanship”
Each Flugtag event attracts approximately 300,000 spectators! What makes the event so popular, is that it is challenging for the competitors, while also highly entertaining for the viewers. I mean… it’s not every day that you see a chicken leg designed aircraft taking a dramatic dive into the ocean…
BTi’s very own Sydney Branch Manager, Yonas Chandra, who attended the weekends events, kindly supplied the above photos.
