In August 2019, GAMA opened up applications for its next Aviation Design Challenge, inviting teams from high schools and after-school programs to sign up. Once accepted, the teams will receive a Fly to Learn curriculum to follow, which covers the elements of flight and aeronautical knowledge necessary to take the next step: development of the team's own design using software powered by X-Plane. The students submit their finished work to the board who will then determine a winner. The prize? A two-week trip to "experience aircraft manufacturing," which has in the past comprised of a trip to Arlington, Washington, to build a Glasair in that company's plant.
