Event description
Join us as Teams from around the world compete for almost $2,000,000 in prizes as they fly the personal flyers of our childhood dreams!

About this Event

Since the Jetsons flew their car to work, Marty McFly flew his DeLorean “back to the future,” and Falcon flew his Wingsuit in “The Avengers” – we’ve always dreamed of personal human flight.

Now, that dream is HERE!

Join us on Saturday, February 29th (Leap Day), when we make a Giant LEAP into the Future of Transportation with the GoFly Prize Final Fly-Off, the exciting culmination of the World’s First-Ever Global Competition to create personal human flight machines, at Moffett Federal Airfield at NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, CA.

You will see teams from around the world compete in their Flying Motorcycles, Hoverboards, Human Drones and more, with the chance to win $2 million in prizes.

And as an added bonus, there will be a Celebration of Flight, featuring GoFly Teams, STEM Activities, the California Air National Guard performing a Para-Rescue Jump, and Vicky Benzing.

All this, and more, and it’s only $20 per ticket.
