About Red Bull Flutag
What’s the Red Bull Flutag? It’s an event organized by Red Bull in which competitors attempt to fly home-made, size- and weight-limited, human-powered flying machines by launching off a pier or ramp into a body of water. This year teams representing every state in the US will compete on the same day, Saturday, September 21, in 5 different cities: Washington D.C., Miami, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, and Long Beach.
