Bad weather slowed but has not halted the Swiss crew dedicated to circling the global in solar-powered aircraft Solar Impulse 2. The plane piloted in this dangerous leg by André Borschberg is 24 hours into the flight at this writing, with 4 more days of flight scheduled to reach Honolulu.
Yes, that's 5 days and night, with and without sun, with no stops, and one pilot.
What an amazing adventure. The future is definitely clean! There are no bounds to human ingenuity! And the Swiss, wow!
Listen in to the cockpit discussions at www.SolarImpulse.com and be part of aviation history!
Next stop: Honolulu, Hawaii.
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 HERE.
