Red Bull Air Race experience

The sky is no limit to unleash your energy

In June, BP in Hungary hosted Mélanie Astles, a Challenger Class pilot in the Red Bull Air Race and fifth best female pilot in the world. Part of a Red Bull Air Race experience, Melanie met with colleagues who also had the chance to get tickets to the Red Bull Air Race in Budapest in 2018.

Mélanie, who is the first woman to win a race in the sport talked about her perspectives on career planning: passion, persistence and overcoming the odds. She spoke about her career journey, shared her thoughts about personal and professional development and how she owned her career over the past years to achieve her dream to become a pilot and succeed.

Four hundred BP colleagues and their friends were invited to enjoy the Red Bull Air Race in Budapest together. Colleagues and their friends were offered the opportunity to attend the qualification race and a ‘behind the scenes experience’ on Saturday, to meet the pilots and crews and check out their race planes, or to join the Grandstand along the Danube on Sunday, when the final race took place and the pilots flew under the iconic Chain Bridge.

The collaboration between the Red Bull Air Race and Air BP that began with the 2017 season has been extended for a further three years. As official fuel and carbon reduction partner, leading international aviation fuel and services supplier Air BP provides fuel for cutting-edge raceplanes – and a great deal more. Safety, efficiency, carbon reduction and an eye to the future are all part of this unique collaboration. Read more...
