The objective of the competition is to navigate a challenging obstacle course in the sky in the fastest possible time. Pilots fly individually against the clock and have to complete tight turns through a slalom course consisting of specially designed 20m high pylons, known as ‘air gates’.The race is a worldwide racing series involving 9 cities in different countries. The US location is in San Francisco. For more info, pictures, and video, go to the Red Bull Air Race website.
