We are in Santa Rosa, CA competing in the GFC. 13 entrants began the process over a year ago, and only 4 showed up with a flying plane. The Phoenix is the only production plane here with the other 3 being very specialized experimental aircraft. We are here to gather data as to the fuel efficiency and speed capability of the Phoenix, measured by NASA personnel.
