Open Source Aviation project teams takes first and second place at the EAA 2021 Founder’s Innovation Prize!!

FlyOnSpeed https://www.flyonspeed.org/  was declared the Grand Championship winner during “An Evening With Innovators” at Theater in the Woods on Tuesday evening at AirVenture. AirBall http://www.airball.aero/ was second prize winner.

Both provide their systems as open source for the community to make aviation safer. This is fantastic news and congratulations to FlyOnSpeed with Vac and the team for an awesome win! BTW, the display used is the huVVer AVI provided by MakerPlane and the team was kind enough to mention us in their pitch presentation. So there is a connection in there… 😊

It is an exciting time to be where we are at with open source in aviation with such projects making it lower cost and safer to fly!
