Red Bull Helipad Landing 2023

red bull team lands plane on A HOTEL helipad in dubai

Last week, we showed you some great drone videos and mentioned that (maybe) nobody would be daring enough to fly that way in an airplane. Well, just this week, a group of aviation thrill seekers said “hold my Red Bull” to the world and accomplished a fantastic feat in Dubai … with an ACTUAL airplane!

Polish stunt pilot and racer Luke Czepiela, took a modified Carbon CUB SS aircraft and landed it precisely on an 88-foot helipad, nearly 700 feet in the air on the world’s only 7-Star hotel (Burj Al Arab). The testing and practice for this stunt took almost two years.

This is quite an accomplishment, and one we couldn’t help but share with you. Check out these two incredible videos showing the accomplishment itself and describing the preparation it took to accomplish. Way to go team Red Bull! Congrats!


EXTREME STEM (Science, Tech, Engineering, and Math) TO ANOTHER LEVEL

This is just another way to take STEM to the extreme. Watch this video describing the preparation and technology it took to make this successful.


At the 2023 Wings Over Houston Airshow, October 14th and 15th, while the flying may not be as extreme and outrageous as this stunt, it will be exhilarating, impressive, and inspiring. Do not miss a chance to see some of the greatest civilian and military pilots in the world tearing up the skies just for you. Who is excited!? Is it October yet!?
