Flugtag, which means “flying day,” is a competition in which teams attempt to pilot homemade flying machines off a 20 ft (6 m) high platform into water. Competition rules state that all flying machines must be engine less, should not be a replica of any sporting flying vehicle, should be made with materials that float in water, weigh no more than 220 lbs (100kg), and have a wingspan of no more than 33 ft (10 m).
