NASA and Cafe Hosting Green Flight Challenge

“NASA’s Centennial Challenges Program is providing $1.65 million in prize money to the winners of the competition. The purse is the largest aviation prize ever offered and attracted 13 teams, led by American innovators. Five of those teams successfully completed their aircraft and flight qualification requirements and will compete for the prize purse. The teams will fly their electric, biofueled and hybrid powered aircraft, to prove they have the most fuel efficient, small aircraft in the world.”
