HEROx Announces $2M GoFly Challenge
February 9, 2018

Remember when you were a child and wanted to fly?

Sponsored by Boeing, the challenge is to create a personal flying device that is safe, useful, and thrilling.

The goal of the GoFly Prize is to foster the development of safe, quiet, ultra-compact, near-VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) personal flying devices capable of flying twenty miles while carrying a single person.

What we are seeking is an “everyone” personal flying device, capable of being flown by ANYONE, ANYWHERE. It should be a device for ALL: young and old, city-dweller and country-dweller, expert and novice.

The GoFly Prize Competition will award $2,000,000 in prizes over three phases, culminating in a Final Fly Off in the Autumn of 2019.

Prizes will be awarded for each phase of the Competition as follows:
Phase I
Up to ten $20,000 prizes awarded based on a written report.

Phase II
Up to four $50,000 prizes awarded based on revised Phase I material (or for new teams new Phase I material) and demonstrated performance of progress to date.

Phase III
One $1,000,000 Grand Prize awarded for the best overall fly-off score.
One $250,000 prize for the quietest compliant entry.
One $250,000 prize for the smallest compliant entry.
One $100,000 prize awarded for disruptive advancement of the state of the art.
