1st flight for Solar Impulse 2
Solar Impulse 2 — the solar-electric aircraft designed to fly around the world — flew more than two hours recently, for a successful maiden flight. The single-seat aircraft launched from the Payerne aerodrome in Switzerland, with test pilot Marcus Scherdel in command. "Si2 incorporates a vast amount of new technology to render it more efficient, reliable and in particular better adapted to long-haul flights," said André Borschberg, Solar Impulse CEO.
