Thank you so much for visiting my website. You make me proud and happy.
TIME TO CELEBRATE the 4th anniversary of Red Bull Stratos. The movie SPACE DIVE is to remember everyone out there, that everything is possible! Passion, discipline, total dedication and the ability to motivate people for your idea are the key to success! I wanna say thank you to my awesome Team, Sponsors and Joe Kittinger, who was such an important asset to this program. I will never forget this outstanding journey and I am so proud that we’ve crossed the finish line together. How do you want to be remembered?
“Sometimes you’ve to go up really high to understand how small you are”
I AM GOING HOME NOW!
I know I am 2 days late. Wish you all the best and keep entertaining us. We love your show, your talent and your great sense of humor.

Returning back from the Airpower16 Airshow. What a great event! Awesome pilots, great performances and outstanding displays. Proud to be part of it! Thanks to everyone involved.
Eurocopter EC 130. What a great helicopter! Just landed at Villa Feltrinelli in Italy to pick up some passengers. Next- Venice.
Just watching the news. I am shocked. Don”t know what to say but my thoughts are with the people & their families in Nice. We pray for you!
This is a total disappointment for millions of fans worldwide!
Yesterday early in the morning Facebook shutdown my facebook fan page and WIPED out 1.5 million FANS around the globe at the same time. Facebook told me that I am pretending to be someone else so I contacted them via the help center and also sent a picture ID. Nobody ever responded to me! This is completely unacceptable and if you wanna help to get my FB fanpage back than LIKE and SHARE my website with all your people to start the buzz!
Thanks to everyone for helping
All the best for your birthday Tom. You are a true inspiration and I admire your outstanding skills as an actor.
What a great place to spend time together with the girl you love the most. Portofino in Italy is one of the best hide aways’s if you need privacy away from paparazzi’s.
Muhammad Ali – professional boxer, social activist, a cultural icon, but, most of all, a dear friend. A big loss for human kind and for all those who loves, admires and respect him like I did. You will allways be an inspiration!
What a great honor. All the hard work and effort of me & my outstanding team finally paid off. We created history and inspired millions of people around the globe.
The highlight of Hard Enduro Racing in 2016. The jewel in the crown of the weekend’s proceedings is the Red Bull Hare Scramble, with 500 riders clawing their way out of the bottom of a quarry to try and conquer the Iron Mountain. And I will be there with aBell 212 Helicopter to take you guys on a ride up into the sky. From the 26th of June till the 29th of June 2016. Don’t miss it!!

These are the topics.
Lessons from a high flyer
Felix Baumgartner has a passion for pushing limits — especially in the air. He is an expert parachutist best known for space diving in a helium balloon over New Mexico, United States for a Red Bull beverage promotion and for completing an unprecedented free-fall flight across the English Channel using a carbon wing. What can we learn from him about the value of proper planning, preparation and the importance of taking risks to push the limits of what’s possible?
► It’s never too late to take a leap.
► Everyone has the potential to do something they think is impossible.
I don’t know what you were doing on March 15th, 4 years ago, but for me it was for sure a very special day. After years of training, research with my team, pain and sweat, I was ready and able to do the first test jump 21 km above the ground. On that day after I landed safely on the ground in Roswell New Mexico we all knew it is possible to break the speed of sound. It is only a matter of time until my dream will become reality- and it did!

Exactly today, 3 years ago, I had the joy to be the Action Sportsman of the Year, winning the Laureus Award, in Rio de Janeiro, from Morgan Freeman’s hands. Usain Bolt, Roger Federer, Tiger Woods, Valentino Rossi, Ronaldo, Michael Schumacher are among the members of this very exclusive club of Laureus winners. More to read on my website.
Thanks to everyone out there for your support and honesty on this topic. The truth will never die!
Together with my friend and supporter Juerg Fleischmann from the Lions Air Group we dropped free skiers on top of some mind blowing mountains here in the french part of Switzerland. Way to go!
Test flight with the EC 130 helicopter from Airbus Helicopters.
All the best to you Robbie and thank you for all the great moments.
Thanks for being such an inspiration and always there for me. Love you- your son.
After 4 weeks of hard work Felix is finally a US commercial helicopter pilot. Thanks to Alex, Aldo, Dan and Aron for all your effort to make his dream come true.
Going to Finnland on the 19th of March 2016 together with my Rally Coach Manfred Pfeiffenberger. Testing all day long for a week will hopefully rise my skills to the next level. Something big is coming up soon. More info´s later.
Helicopter vs. Drift car. Kuba and Felix performing together for the first time. Location is an old military airfield in Poland owned by the polish Rally Champion Tomek Kuchar. Two days of filming , 20 crew people on side, 2 drone’s, a specialized camera car, a 1000 horse power Nissan and a BO 105 helicopter blended together into pure action.
2015 has been an incredible successful year and now it is time chill out in a different city. LA is the place to be and that´s why my girl and me stay there for Christmas and New Years Eve. Will be back in Switzerland at the beginning of February 2016. Happy New Year to all my fans…stay with me also in 2016. FELIX and MIHAELA
Felix and Mihaela are competing together for the very first time at the Barburka Rally in Poland. Four stages plus the last on in the middle of Warsaw at night in front of thousand of spectators. Don’t miss this outstanding opportunity.
This guy is a lot of fun, charming and humble and Felix was deeply impressed finding out that he was watching his jump from the stratosphere. They might not share the same love for flying or the same courage, but they share the passion for….Romanian women:)). Gerald was dating a gorgeous Romanian model and actress and Felix is still on, with his Romanian-living- in -Monaco girl….
Felix has participated for the 1st time on this amazing polish event, Verva Street Racing. This time, his co driver was…his girlfriend, Mihaela. No wonder this hot team won the second place, after the polish champion Thomas Kuchar. After the race, Felix has made a drifting show for the 50 000 people attending the event, together with Kuba Przygonski, the famous world champion in drifting. The next big motorsport event in Poland will be the Barborka Rally in December. And of course Mihalinka and Felix will compete there as well. It is gonna be Mihalinkas first Rally as a co pilot. Good luck both of you.
The Steiger Award goes to those people who accomplished something meaningful for the whole world, in different categories. Nena, Udo Jürgens, , Boris Becker, David Frost, Bob Geldof, Sir Richard Chamberlain, Christopher Lee, Jean Michel Jarre, Bonnie Tyler, Peter Lindbergh and so many others were among the recipients of this award. Felix has his warm ovations and applauses in 2015, as the winner of Steiger Awards in the Sport Category, 3 years after his historical jump. Not bad, for a sky diver, though …:)
Surfing without waves and still having fun. That is the concept behind electric surfboards. Send us your favourite surf pictures and we will ad them to our “Surf the Planet Signature Series”.
Goodwood Festival of Speed is The event to attend, if you are sensitive to engine noise, old cars shapes and charm, the fastest new cars, motorcycle shows and racing . It’s probably one of the biggest and interesting moving museum, everything you wanna know and see it’s there, right in front of your eyes. Plus, it’s one of those rare occasion where you can hang out with living legends, big champions of all times, key guys from the racing industry or…big stars which are there just racers. Lord of March is the father of this great event and for sure he deserves all the laudatio for his outstanding work. Felix was glad to have been there, driving a Star Gordon Benett from 1905, the property of Hermann Layher ( Technik Museum Sinsheim, Germany). And, hell, yes, is good to come back home with the sticks signed and offered with a true friendship by Nick Mason, the legendary Pink Floyd’s drummer. Felix was also spotted chatting with Jean Todt, Sir Chris Hoy, Giacomo Agostini, Nico Roseberg, Sir Jackie Stewart and many other friends, old or just in…
Can you pursue a 1000-hp drift car in a helicopter – like in the action scene of some Hollywood film – just a few metres off the ground? Alongside Polish professional rally driver, Jakub Przygoński, Red Bull Stratos world record holder and helicopter pilot, Felix Baumgartner shows us that anything is possible as long as you’re in perfect control of your flying machine.
In the Red Bull Heli Drifting video, you see Baumgartner in his two-tonne MBB Bo 105 (a Flying Bulls aerobatics helicopter) going after Przygoński’s Toyota GT 86 down a runway in Debrzno, Poland. In this redbulletin.com interview, Baumgartner tells us why he destroyed a dartboard and which job in Hollywood he’s most tempted by.
Every year Felix gets an invitation to Grand Prix in Monaco. Sometimes, if his schedule it‘s friendly, he can go to this historical race, right in the middle of the action. He has made an effort this year not only because his girlfriend lives in Monaco, but also because a lot of his friends were there too. Liam Cunningham (Game of Thrones) was a double surprise, because Felix he has no idea that he is one of his biggest fan. Cunnigham admire Felix not only for his professional achievements, but also for the…start in life, as a mechanic. Liam Cunnigham was …an electrician, long before he became an international movie star.
Felix and Volskwagen teamed up for a successful 3 years advertising campaign worldwide. As a trustful opinion leader and with a super professional behavior, Felix is always a great choice for advertisers, but just if the brand suits his personal life style, his image and his beliefs.
From Russia to Singapore, from Italy to Romania and all over the world, Felix is always a top image for promoting a healthy and sporty life style. He has an iron discipline with himself and that’s why he is always a good choice for any cover. He is really telling the story, no bullshit included…
Felix was piloting one of the two Phoenix Racing Audi R8 LMS, together with Christopher Haase and Stephane Ortelli in the AP class. They’ve finished the race on place 9, among 53 competitors. The heat was on and of course Felix as an extrem athlete is always on the edge. Check it out when he was overtaking Ivo Breuker…!
Here is the link of the crash – https://youtu.be/IPbs6TtlOGU
The legendary 24hour of race at the “Nürburgring” is one of the most dangerous and challenging races on this planet. It is difficult to race but so easy to die here and thats most likely the reason why they called it “THE GREEN HELL”.
We know what you guys are thinking of…. Las Vegas it‘ s a special place to be, to gamble, to have fun, to …whatever. But not for our skydiver, who was there to…speak in front of a very interesting crowd, about… managing the risk, achieving the goals and dealing with success. For a guy who was not the best in school , it‘s pretty tough to speak in front of so many geeks ( sorry, guys, try to see the positive sense 🙂 and have fun and… have one of the longest autograph session after… So, no, he was not gambling in Las Vegas, but he won a lot more than money :).
The only issue where Mens`s Health did a black cover with golden letters was the one with Felix Baumgartner on it. As a tribute to what he has achieved and being a role model for sports and lifestyle.
Outstanding people have extraordinary effects on us. Felix Baumgartner is the first person to break the sound barrier without vehicular power on his descent. He is also renowned for the particularly dangerous nature of the stunts he has performed during his career. In his project Red Bull Stratos, Mr. Baumgartner left the whole world breathless and astonished as he jumped to Earth from a helium balloon in the stratosphere and set the altitude record and greatest free fall velocity on 14 October 2012.
In recognition of his outstanding work, indomitable courage and determination to challenge limits and as such encouraging others to strive beyond the boundaries of any form, Felix was invited to receive this CGDC Award….in Austria, his mother country.
Spike Guy’s Choice Award in Hollywood is….the most wanted award, for the biggest name on this planet. So, here are some winners : Adam Sandler, Beyonce, Will Ferell, Gerald Butler, Matt Damon, Cameron Diaz, Angelina Jolie, Clint Eastwood, George Clooney, Matthew McConaughey, Jeff Bridges …..and we can continue, while you raise your eyebrows, trying to find the connection with our winner :)))
Ladies and Gentleman, The MANKIND AWARD goes to…. Felix Baumgartner ! And it‘s quite cool to see Jimmy Kimmel, Vince Vaughn, Burt Reynolds, Jennifer Lawrence and so many other famous people cheering for the Austrian skydiver….
When we hear a familiar name, we think we know all about that person…. But, there are always more spices to discover, specially when you have the chance to meet such a guy. Jackie Chan is a living legend and his professional story it’s a very inspiring one – actor, martial artist, film director, producer, stuntman, and singer. In his movies, he is known for his acrobatic fighting style, comic timing, use of improvised weapons, and innovative stunts, which he typically performs himself. Chan has been training in Kung fu and Wing Chun. He has been acting since the 1960s and has appeared in over 150 films. He made it. And he was full of admiration for Felix, when they first met. Admiration and friendship rezist. On both sides.
When you eat your popcorn and watch …. The Big Lebowski, for example, you never think that you might share your dinner with … Lebowski. But, life can find a way to put your chair exactly next to his chair and.. you share some great moments, without popcorn, but with a lot of emotions.
Just a gentle reminder :
Bridges is one of the youngest actors ever to be nominated for an Academy Award (1972, age 22, Best Supporting Actor, The Last Picture Show), and one of the oldest ever to win (2010, age 60, Best Actor, Crazy Heart). Crazy Heart also won him the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Drama, and the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role.
They‘ve met at a French TV show – “Vivement Dimanche”, and they’ve hang out in Pavilion Gabriel, In Paris, celebrating his birthday. They share a passion back in their early 20th for….amateur boxing, both undefeated, even if the passion was there for a very short time. The amazing french actor , who’s “Stavisky” masterpiece is still in everybody‘’s heart, will always be a great story to tell…..
These guys just get along well together, every time they meet. Felix is a big fan of the great American movie star, who is also a pilot, (Cruise likes planes and Baumgartner…is into helicopters), but Tom really knocked out Felix, but telling him – “YOU ARE A REAL ACTION HERO, Felix, I just act this kind of guys ” ……….
Morgan Freeman and Eva Longoria were the hosts for the Laureus Awards Gala, in 2013, Rio de Janeiro, announcing that the WORLD ACTION SPORTSMAN OF THE YEAR is….Felix Baumgartner. Another happy moment for Felix, another opportunity to meet some of the greatest athletes and sport persons of this world.
For those who are not familiar with these awards, here are some legendary winners, starting with Jean Marais, Sophia Loren, Celine Dion, and continuing with Michael Jackson, Shakira, Christoph Waltz, Giorgio Armani and so on… Yes, there is a connection with the famous book “Bambi, a life in the woods”, by Felix Salten, but Hubert Burda Media’s intention was and still is to recognize excellence and performance in various fields…including….sky diving and breaking the speed of sound. So, here it comes Felix Baumgartner, collecting another prestigious award , with this explanation : ” Baumgartner not only broke three records, but also created a global media event that fascinated all generations on a scale that has not been seen since the moon landing in the 1960s.”
Ban Ki-Moon, the United Nations Secretary General, was more than curious to meet Felix Baumgartner. The meeting took place in New York, on October, 24th, 2012, at ONU. It is probably the last place where you would expect to see a skydiver, but Felix stole the show by all meanings, so… no surprise. Well, maybe just one – a leather jacket at ONU could be also an extreme sport :))))
Everybody was sitting on that couch, talking to Jimmy Fallon. You name it…, cause it’s really hard to choose a super star from the movie industry, a top singer, a politician, a world champion, a best selling author…. Well, it was not so hard for Felix to be invited there too, in a big media tour in United States, following his jump from stratosphere. Great guy, this multi talented actor, TV host, singer, comedian, producer Jimmy Fallon….
Another great appearance for Felix in Jay Leno’s show, this time for his outstanding jump from the stratosphere, in 2012. In the same evening, Tom Cruise and col. Joe Kittinger were sitting next to Felix and Kool and the Gang were the musical guests in Jay Leno’s Late Night Show.
The fact that Felix was the first person ever to skydive across the English Channel became a major subject around the world, back in 2005. No wonder Jay Leno wanted him in his show, for the first time. Double pleasure for Felix – he became friend with one of the greatest TV host of all times, but he also had the chance to spend precious moments with … the missing Michael Clark Duncan, the great American actor (The green mile, Planet of the Apes, The Scorpion King, Armageddon…)….
