Congratulations to all of our Innovators and Teams on completing the submissions for Phase II of the GoFly Prize, sponsored by Boeing! Almost 300 Innovators from 40 Teams across 16 countries registered for Phase II. Of those, 31 Teams submitted entries. The technical prowess and enthusiasm to change the world are evident in the entries; our team looks forward to reviewing all of the submissions in greater detail in the coming weeks. This exciting moment marks the next step in our collective mission to revolutionize flight, transportation, and the world as we know it!
On March 26, GoFly will announce the Phase II winners and award $50,000 USD to up to four winning teams. What shape will our four winning designs take? We are as eager to find out as you are!
As we look forward to the months ahead, our Final Fly-Off event will be the culmination of the GoFly Prize and the realization of our shared dream of flight. We can’t wait to welcome all Innovators who meet the Fly-Off requirements to debut their personal flyers — and to make history. Four prizes will be awarded at the Final Fly-Off, including a $250,000 prize for the quietest compliant device, a $250,000 prize for the smallest compliant device, the $100,000 Pratt & Whitney Disruptor Award, and, of course, the $1,000,000 Grand Prize.
There is still a lot of time until the Fly-Off—and you can join us now.
There are three important points to note:
1. New Teams:
New Teams can still join the competition and participate in the Final Fly-Off. The competition is still completely open to any and all around the world who want to compete for the almost $2,000,000 in prizes still to be won. All teams that wish to join the competition should contact us to begin the registration process at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Teams do not need to have won a previous round’s prize—or even to have participated in a previous round—to win the Final Fly Off Prizes.
2. Phase I Teams:
Phase I Teams may also continue in the competition. You do not need to have participated in Phase II in order to register now and compete in Phase III and the Final Fly-Off. All teams that wish to participate in Phase III should reach out to us at email@example.com.
3. Phase II Teams:
You have already completed all paperwork necessary to register and continue on to Phase III, so you can focus on building and flying your revolutionary creations! Yes, that’s right—all Phase II Teams can continue onto Phase III without any additional registration documents. Of course, Teams will still need to meet all GoFly Rules and Final Fly-Off requirements to compete.
Stay tuned for more updates—and should you have any questions, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ready. Set. GoFly!
