Red Bull Paper Wings national winners all set for Hangar-7

 

It was time for paper plane pilots to suit up, shoot their airplanes aloft and win a seat on the flight to Hangar-7, Salzburg, Austria. This ultimate acrobatic battle between 63 participants from seven Indian cities was for the top positions to compete at the 2012 World Finals of Red Bull Paper Wings in the month of May.
 
Participants were judged across three categories- Longest Distance, Maximum Flight Time and Aerobatic Flight. Simant Suman from SRM University, Chennai won the ‘Longest Distance’ challenge. The plane flew a distance of 30.9m. Clocking a time of 7.10 seconds in the air, the plane by Anuj Jain from Symbiosis Institute of Technology, Pune won in the “Longest Airtime” category. The “Aerobatics” category was won by Lauv Jaiswal from Techno India College, Kolkata with 30 points. The three lucky hobby engineers will now get a chance to face contestants from 85 other countries for the final challenge at Hanger 7 in Austria.
 
Kunal Kapoor, trained pilot, Bollywood actor and also the judge at the Red Bull Paper Wings finals, said at the event, "Red Bull has always been associated with creative and exciting stuff. Designing a plane out of a simple sheet of paper and putting it to test gives an innovative twist to this favourite past-time classroom activity. Red Bull Paper Wings gives these young hobby engineers an awesome opportunity to fight it out alongside winners from across the globe. I congratulate the winners and look forward to cheering them at the World finals at Hanger-7.”
 
The battle stage is now all set to find out the best paper pilots in the world with the World Finals at Hangar-7, Salzburg, Austria.
