Bognor Regis International Birdman is an annual event that takes place at the Pier in Bognor Regis West Sussex. Bold contestants take their chances in an attempt to 'fly ' off the Pier for cash prizes. Categories include serious fliers 'Condor class' who use adapted hangliders, 'Kingfishers' -fancy dress contestants whose attempts to fly are usually doomed from the start...! and 'Leonardo Class', a flying craft designed to fly using man power only, named for the historic efforts of Leonard Da Vinci.
This event is great for all the family to enjoy and alongside the flying there will be numerous other entertainments taking place, on and around the pier, on water and on land.
For the event to take place, money is needed for road closures, scaffolding, entertainments, prize money, insurance, marshalls,
