What is the Birdman Competition?

The Birdman is a flight competition for human powered flying machines held each summer in the picturesque seaside town of Worthing on England\'s South Coast.

Many flyers take part to raise money for charities, other design complex machines to aim for the distance prizes. A substantial prize of £10,000 is offered for the furthest flight should a birdman achieve over a 100 metre distance.

There are three Classes that can enter the competiton:

Leonardo Da Vinci Class is for self/team-designed built and innovative craft. This class allows one flight each day; however on the Saturday competitors can choose not to fly if conditions are unfavourable.

Condor Class is for modified hang-gliders and similar craft. This class will fly on both days and the current birdman champion is a Condor competitor.

Kingfisher class is open for fun flyers and is a great way to earn more money for charity. Individuals and teams of two can enter this category; the prizes are not awarded for distance but for the entertainment value of the flight. The public can also vote on this category to crown a people's choice winner. 

What's it all about

The Worthing International Birdman event is a competition for human powered flying machines that take off from a special ramp constructed on Worthing Pier.  There are 3 flying classes so prospective entrants can decide if they wish to be a serious aviator or want to take part for fun and raise money for charity.

This event brings thousands of visitors to Worthing over the weekend, gaining both national and international publicity.
