~ Pranav Das and Vineet Kumar will now compete at the National Finals in April after winning the Mumbai Qualifiers
Mumbai, 18th March 2019: IIT Bombay, Mumbai witnessed the return of the 5th edition of Red Bull Paper Wings 2019- the largest paper plane competition to India after 4 years. The tournament saw around 120 enthusiastic participants each in both the categories, preparing artistically designed paper planes. The winners were decided on two categories- – Longest Distance, Longest Airtime. Pranav Das and Vineet Kumar, students of IIT Bombay, who were triumphant in the Longest Distance and Longest Airtime categories respectively, now get an exciting opportunity of competing in the National Finals in April. All national final winners will then move on to represent India at the World Final in Austria in the iconic Hangar-7, where the world champions will be crowned.
Red Bull Paper Wings invites students from around the global to a global paper plane championship and the largest Red Bull student participatory event. The idea is simple and ingenious at the same time: students must make a plain sheet of paper fly as far, as long or as artistically through the air as possible.
Pune Qualifier Results:
Longest Distance- Pranav Das- 28 meters
Longest Airtime- Vineet Kumar- 8.62 seconds
Forget cockpits and jet engines, all the equipment needed is an ordinary, commercial sheet of paper with a strong dose of exceptional folding abilities as well as creativity, imagination, and a grasp of basic aeronautic rules. Building a paper plane and letting it fly is an easy thing – you can do it everywhere with just one sheet of paper! It is the purest form of aerodynamics and therefore perfectly linked to the topic of flying and “Red Bull gives you wings”.
