SANTA MONICA, CA – Designers, innovators and aviators from across the country were invited to compete for a spot to travel to Salzburg, Austria this May to compete against hundreds of international pilots (ahem, paper plane pilots) with their eye on one prize: global winner of Red Bull Paper Wings.

Now, they need your help. Watch the videos uploaded by the top qualifiers showcasing their aerobatic paper plane skills and cast your vote on who should represent the USA at the World Finals.

Tens of thousands of self-trained pilots will put their extraordinary skills to the tests in more than 80 countries on four continents for one of the world’s most international events and the top paper plane contest. All in the name of earning bragging rights and the esteemed title of Red Bull Paper Plane Champion.

Winners from the U.S. qualifying events and online voting will travel to Austria in May where the Red Bull Paper Wings competition will be hosted at the iconic Hangar-7 home of the acrobatic Flying Bulls.
