Well here’s a fun event that you don’t hear about every day…
It’s called Flugtag.
What’s Flugtag, you ask?
Flugtag is an extraordinary flying contest that’s sponsored by Red Bull and takes place in Nashville this summer.
Red Bull calls it “the quest for human-powered flight”.
It’s definitely a one-of-a-kind event not to be missed!
Here are the details…
How It Works
In Flugtag, teams of up to 5 people work together building outrageous homemade, human-powered flying crafts which one person pilots off of an elevated flight deck, through the air, and into a body of water.
Teams are judged on three criteria — distance, creativity and showmanship.
“Designed by amateurs. Built by volunteers. And piloted by the incredibly brave.”
How To Get Involved

I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
