A solar powered plane called Solar Impulse 2, has launched successfully and is now attempting to become the first solar powered flight to travel around the globe. Solar Impulse 1 has already flown across the United States, storing enough energy from the sun to fly overnight. Now, after launching from Abu Dhabi in the Middle East on 9 March, Solar Impulse 2 is aiming to go one better and fly for 25 days, over 5 months, all the way around the Earth. So how will it do it? Read on Considering its size, Solar Impulse 2 is very light.
To take the success of the solar-powered flight around the world further, the Solar Impulse Foundation is selecting solutions that protect the environment in a profitable way and awarding them the Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label. The Solar Impulse Efficient Solution label seeks to bridge the gap between ecology and economy, bringing together protection of the environment and financial viability to show that these solutions are not expensive fixes to problems, but rather opportunities for clean economic growth. The explorer and pilot of Solar Impulse has been selected by the French government as one of the representatives of civil society that will address the G7, calling for brave policies that will turn the tide in the climate crisis. Bertrand Piccard, who has long advocated for more ambitious climate policies thanks to financially profitable solutions, has been invited as When I was flying around the world in my solar airplane, I remember looking at the sun that was giving energy to my four electric motors and their huge propellers. There was no noise, no pollution, no fuel
Solar Impulse 2 has completed the first round-the-world flight by a solar-powered aeroplane, after touching down in Abu Dhabi early on Tuesday. The final leg of the feat, aimed at showcasing the potential of renewable energy, was a bumpy one, with turbulence driven by hot desert air leaving the solo pilot, Bertrand Piccard, fighting with the controls. The plane, which has a wingspan wider than a Boeing and carries more than 17, solar cells on its wings, began the circumnavigation in March in Abu Dhabi. It has since crossed both the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans using no fossil fuel and has spent more than 23 days in the air. So we have flown 40,km, but now it is up to other people to take it further. It is up to every person in a house to take it further, every head of state, every mayor in a city, every entrepreneur or CEO of a company. The pilot also climbed to 29, feet during the day and glided down to 5, feet at night, to conserve power.
Solar Impulse is a Swiss long-range experimental solar-powered aircraft project, and also the name of the project's two operational aircraft. - History has been made.
Facebook Twitter Email. CNN — The first aircraft powered solely by the sun made its landing into history, reaching Abu Dhabi on Tuesday and completing a 25, mile, round-the-world journey that began over a year ago. The Swiss-engineered Solar Impulse 2 was piloted by Bertrand Piccard on the final part of the epic expedition that took off from Cairo earlier this week. The final stop completes its leg, milestone journey that used only the power of the sun's rays. The lightweight aircraft, which weighs the same as an SUV but has the wingspan of a Boeing , is the brainchild of Piccard and Bertrand Borschberg, a Swiss engineer and businessman. The Solar Impulse is a single-seater, so the two men have shared the flying by taking different legs of the journey since March

In started the attempt of the First Round-The-World Solar Flight, from Abu Dhabi to Hawaii, already achieving the longest solo solar flight ever achieved in aviation history. With their solar aircraft, a flying laboratory full of clean technologies, they flew 40, km to promote the use of renewable energies and energy efficiency on the ground, for a better quality of life. Across the Round-The-World flight, the team overcame technical, human and operational challenges that had never been faced before. A and back to Europe and Abu Dhabi. As with all great firsts, there were no benchmarks.
