Solar Impulse with Bertrand Piccard at the controls was planned to fly from Dayton towards Lehigh Valley KABE on Tuesday morning (Dayton Time) May 24 Th. We experienced a brief cabinet failure which distributes the fan power needed to keep the mobile hangar inflated. This lasted approximately 2.5 minutes. During the time it took to reboot the system, some parts of the airplane were lightly touched by the deflating hangar fabric. After a ...

A ‪#‎solar‬ airplane took off during the night from ‪#‎SanFrancisco‬ to attempt to reach ‪#‎Phoenix‬. Guess how? Using clean technologies!
When people see Solar Impulse 2 for the first time, one of the questions that often comes up is: “how can this thing actually fly?” Honestly, it does look a bit a like a huge paper plane right? And what we answer is: “thanks to all the clean technologies on board!” When Bertrand and André started Solar Impulse in 2003, everyone told them it would be impossible. So they looked for partners who were ready to take up the challenge, and by combini...

The bee's nest carbon architecture could also benefit the DIY drone industry. We are always looking to make our frames lighter while maintaining strength

Are you ready #newyork  ?
Change your routine, see history in the making, come outside and watch Solar Impulse 2 fly around the Statue of Liberty. In a few days, this dream will come true. André Borschberg will fly Si2 from Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania to New York City, completing a flyover - our dream since 2013. Bringing the solar airplane to the city that never sleeps is symbolic. Indeed, it’s not a surprise that innovation reigns in New York City and that people ...

Why we are not flying directly to New York City?
Flying directly to New York City from California definitely would have been tempting for Solar Impulse - only approximately 100 hours from coast to coast. Both Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg have already proved that we can fly with perpetual endurance. So what’s keeping us from making a flight directly to New York? Weather remains a big challenge for Si2. We fly from west to east between two weather systems that move in the same dir...

Bertrand Piccard just landed in the Heart of the United States, Tulsa, Oklahoma at 4:15AM UTC
Bertrand Piccard just landed in the Heart of the United States, Tulsa, Oklahoma at 4:15 AM UTC, 6:15 AM CET on May 13th and 11:15 PM local time on May 12th. After spending just over a week in Phoenix, Arizona, our mission engineers at the Mission Control Center found a weather opening that would give way to a flight to a slightly unexpected destination: Tulsa, Oklahoma. Until two days before takeoff, our engineers had not even considered flyin...

I live in Tulsa and had the opportunity to view Si2 yesterday. The demand for tickets to the viewing was so great they added an extra day. Very cool plane.

The warm Arizona air welcomed André Borschberg to Phoenix Goodyear Airport at 3:55AM UTC, 5:55AM CET on May 3rd, and 8:55PM MST on May 2nd.
The warm Arizona air welcomed André Borschberg to Phoenix Goodyear Airport at 3:55AM UTC, 5:55AM CET on May 3rd, and 8:55PM MST on May 2nd. After spending a few hours cruising at 22,000 feet in cold temperatures, André is relieved to land on the warm tarmac. This flight marks the first flight of the Crossing of the United States. Our goal with this part of the round-the-world solar journey is to reach New York as quickly as possible in orde...
