The Sky’s the Limit as World Paper Plane Elite Comes Together in Salzburg
The countdown is now on to crown the world’s best paper plane flyers at the Red Bull Paper Wings World Final on 4-5 May in Salzburg’s Hangar-7. After proving themselves against the best their countries could throw at them, the world’s finest will be looking to up the ante in Salzburg in a quest for the coveted title and, who knows, maybe even a new world record!
The chosen few charged with the honour of representing their country at the World Final have to show their mad paper skills at the National Qualiflyers first. The tried-and-tested formula from the World Finals in 2006 and 2009 is set to rock Austria for a third time as the finalists do battle in three disciplines: Longest Distance, Longest Airtime, and Aerobatics.
Judging the action will be a team of experts. The world class jury will be on hand to award valuable points in the Aerobatics category and to ensure the official Red Bull Paper Wings rules are observed at all times.
The event begins on Friday 4 May with the pre-elimination round in the category Longest Distance and continues on Saturday with the pre-eliminations in the categories Longest Airtime and Aerobatics. The super final in all three disciplines will take place on Saturday evening, with the winners crowned Red Bull Paper Wings World Champion 2012.
