The Red Bull Air Race World Championship features an intense and exciting competition featuring a handful of brave pilots and fast light planes. The events of the Red Bull Air Race take place in many different venues around the world. The goal of these events is to score the best possible time in your flight making as few penalties as possible. You have to fly through a set of pylons requiring different maneuvers. For example, you may have to cross through one pylon gate by looping through it. You have to point the plane at a certain angle or fly at a certain level crossing the gate. I can tell you that the precision and the skill of these pilots are almost on the same level as Formula 1 racers. In a sense, I often liken the Red Bull Air Race more like autocross or even rally, but more like autocross. Only this is more like aerial autocross. Two of the such planes that fly in this series Zikvo Edge 540 and the MXS-R. Perhaps the best pilot of us American folks is Kirby Chambliss. Pilots from around the world compete in this series. There aren't too many young pilots in this series. In one event, I think the youngest pilot from this past season was 38 years old. So maybe there can be a push to maybe find some pilots 30 or younger. If you've never seen a Red Bull Air Race event, I think you're in for a treat. This video gives you an idea of what the Red Bull Air Race is all about: Exciting, huh? For 2016, the season begins in March with the first stop in Abu Dhabi. Seven more venues are included along with Japan, beautiful Budapest, and two American events at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The 2016 season is an eight-round affair around a number of amazing places. To learn more about the Red Bull Air Race, visit http://www.redbullairrace.com .
