Red Bull Flug Tag – Entries open

This a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to let 100,000 people see your creativity, engineering and showmanship in the art of flying!

It’s official Ireland! Red Bull Flugtag applications are now open, and there’s no time to waste. All you need to do is find your team and find your theme!

Together, you must construct a flying contraption in an attempt to defy gravity. But we’ve had enough of those boring/functioning ones in the sky, we are looking for a plane with pizzazz (even if it comes with a splash!)

Once you have your crew all you need to do is play a fun game (to get you warmed up) and then fill out your contact details. We will then send you a full application pack to get things off to a flying start!

It’s apply to fly time!
