Boring has announced the five finalists of Phase II of the GoFly challenge. Each of the following teams will receive $50,000 in prizes, while continuing to compete for the $1,000,000 Grand Prize.

The GoFly community is comprised of more than 3,500 innovators from 101 countries across the globe. Of these innovators, 31 Phase II Teams across 16 countries submitted entries for review by a panel of experts across 2 rounds of rigorous judging. These Phase II teams were required to submit visual and written documentation detailing their personal flyer prototypes. It’s the first time physical prototypes were introduced into the challenge, and this crucial step has brought us ever closer to the Final Fly-Off.
