Red Bull Air Race Cannes : the animation programme around the event

côte d'azur | …news & info

19 April 2018

The sky of Cannes will host amazing things this weekend!

While thousands of spectators are expected on the Croisette to see at work the best drivers in the world, the Red Bull Air Race offers them big surprises.

Motorized or not; with a sail, a wing, a propeller, or even without, the demonstrations carried out on the sidelines of this first stage of the world championship of aerial racing in France, promise to set the bar very high.

Friday, at noon, the Soul Flyers will open the ball with a parachute jump over the bay of Cannes. Remember Fred & Vince Soul Flyers: the video of their jump from a cliff to integrate a plane in full flight a few meters lower, went around the world in 2017!

Tim Alongi, will never be far from his 2 compatriots with his magic sail, for flights in paragliding acrobatic.

On the aviation side, the BO-105, the acrobatic helicopter of Team Flying Bulls. There are only 4 in the world to be able to loop like him!

Between two aerial performances, pre-war vintage planes will crisscross the sky. For the pleasure of lovers of old zincs.

The Cannes public should also marvel at two men flying over the water: Franky Zapata the inventor of the flyboard and the "Jet Pack Man". Two disciplines straight out of a sci-fi movie ...

The 3 days of competition will end in apotheosis with a passage of the Patrouille de France on the Croisette which will draw the curtain on this first Red Bull Air Race in France.
