The 2007 Red Bull Air Race World Series season was the fifth Red Bull Air Race World Series season.

New pilots

Race calendar

Three locations more were added to the race calendar in 2007, extending the number of rounds from 9 to 12. However only 10 races were run due to cancellation of the legs in Barcelona, Spain and Acapulco, Mexico. The first race was held on April 6 in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates and the last one was on November 3 in Perth, Australia.[2]
