After a delay of several weeks in Nagoya due to an unruly cold front, Solar Impulse 2 took off for Hawaii piloted by Andre Borschberg, and made it! The plane and crew broke multiple records including the longest flight in hours by a single pilot, solar powered or otherwise!
Now after a layover in Hawaii, Solar Impulse 2 will take off for the U.S. mainland... overflying the Pacific and California to reach Arizona's Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix.
Watch for a Global Chamber Phoenix event in coordination with the Arizona Consular Corps and Alisa Jost, Honorary Consul for Switzerland.
Sign-up for the event once the date and logistics are set in Phoenix - tentatively July 15th, 3-5pm. Find our more and register HERE.
