  • Silverwing wins Phase II of the GoFly Competition
04 April 2019
As a proud sponsor of the Silverwing Team of TU Delft, we are happy to announce that Silverwing was selected among the five best teams in the GoFly Competition worldwide!

Phase I and II Winners of the GoFly Prize
In November 2017, The GoFly Prize was announced, a three phase challenge sponsored by Boeing. The goal of the prize is to foster the development of safe, quiet, ultra-compact, near-VTOL personal flying devices capable of flying twenty miles while carrying a single person.

In early 2018 a small group of aerospace engineering students from the TU Delft submitted their concept. Their electric flying motorcycle concept was among ten winners selected out of nearly 200 submissions. They quickly put their concept to the test, individually testing key components of the aircraft as well as flying smaller scale models.

In March of 2019, the result of this work placed them among five winners globally. 

As proud sponsor of this very ambitious team, we congratulate them with this great achievement!
