All selected teams flown their planes from a 25 meter long and 6 meters high constructed runway using only human power. Each team, consists of one pilot and 3 assistants, so that he could lead the aircraft while the assistants help to hover as far as possible before landing in the water.
While the sky may be the limit on creativity, there are still a few flight regulations. First off, all flying machines must be entirely human-powered (no external energy sources or stored power).
