TEAM PGFD has nearly completed building their craft that is a replica of one of our new PGFD Engines.  Engine 842 to be exact - it makes sense as they are first due at the National Harbor.  As soon as their craft is completed we will post images for everyone to see.  The event is September 21 and will at the National Harbor in Prince George's County.

Tickets are now on sale with over 2,000 being purchased already.  Use this link to purchase your ticket and cheer on TEAM PGFD!!!

Challenging teams of everyday people to build homemade human-powered flying machines and pilot them off a 30-foot high deck in hopes of flight, Red Bull Flugtag takes place more than 100 times around the world. Now, this one-of-a-kind competition is landing in DC for the first time ever on Saturday, September 21 at National Harbor, MD, and LivingSocial is the exclusive ticket provider.
Flugtag might mean "flying day" in German, but all these crafts ultimately splash into the waters below. Red Bull Flugtag flying machines range from realistic plane replicas to anything the imagination can conjure up. Past crafts include a Flying Purple People Eater, Santa and his sleigh, a flying toilet, and even a flying cheeseburger. Teams are judged not only on their flight's distance, but creativity and showmanship as well. To gain more showmanship points, participants often wear outrageous costumes, act out skits, and create their own music soundtracks for the flight.
National Red Bull Flugtag will take place on the Southpointe area adjacent to the Gaylord Hotel & Convention Center. Gates open at noon, inviting spectators to meet the teams and get a close-up view of the homemade crafts before the first flight departs at 2 p.m.
Choose from the following offers:
• $15 for one GA ticket
• $50 for four GA tickets
• $80 for one VIP ticket with premium viewing, food, and drink

PGFD Flugtag tee-shirts are also available for purchase.  
All proceeds will be donated to the IAFF Local 1619 Burn Fund.  
The 1st edition shirts can be worn in place of a work shirt during September
