Green Flight Challenge Video Report by CAFE Foundation

pMPG competitionThe CAFE Foundation published a video report showing takeoffs and landings of the participating aircraft. Each aircraft's efficiency is evaluated using special hardware to measure total energy output, whether as electricity or liquid fuel. The resulting metric of Passenger Mile Per Gallon or pMPG is used as a component of each team's final score. Aircraft must achieve 200 pMPG across all competition phases to qualify for the US $1.5M prize.
