2011 CAFE Green Flight Challenge

Main Info

Today’s environmental and energy concerns compel aviation to go “Green”. To lead the way, the $1.65M NASA-funded Green Flight Challenge is a flight competition for quiet, practical, Green aircraft that will take place at the CAFE Foundation Flight Test Center at Charles M. Schulz Sonoma County Airport in Santa Rosa, California. It is the largest-ever prize for civil aviation and there are currently 13 teams entered. Team aircraft must fly 200 miles in less than two hours using the energy equivalent of less than 1 gallon of gasoline per occupant. Team aircraft include those propelled by gasoline, bio-diesel, hydrogen, and electricity.
