Nissan proudly announced earlier this month that the automaker has been named the exclusive automotive partner of Red Bull Flugtag Nashville. The event will be held at Nashville's Riverfront Park on Saturday, September 23, and is expected to draw 80,000 people to the shores of the Cumberland River.
Among the 42 human-powered flying machines "fly" off of a 110-foot-long, 24-foot-high ramp will be a team of 15 Nissan employees from the company's nearby Smyrna plant. They're currently spending nights and weekends engineering their "Take On Flight"-themed entry, using their experience, engineering skills and access to computer modeling software to make sure that their vehicle meets Red Bull Flugtag restrictions on vehicle weight and wingspan.
In a press release, Jeremy Tucker, Nissan's vice president, Marketing Communications and Media, stated, "Nissan is proud to be partnering with Red Bull and hosting this celebration of engineering and ingenuity in our hometown of Nashville. With our North American headquarters nearby, Nissan Stadium as a backdrop, and a team of employees creating its own Flugtag from the nearby Smyrna Assembly plant, Nissan had to be a part of the fun."
