Solar Impulse's first
Round-the-world Solar flight

Solar Impulse is the only airplane of perpetual endurance, able to fly day and night on solar power, without a drop of fuel.

Our challenge is to attempt the First Round-The-World Solar Flight in 2015. A way for Bertrand Piccard, André Borschberg and their team to demonstrate how pioneering spirit, innovation and clean technologies can change the world

And you, would you like to be a part of it ?

Our Story

A family heritage of exploration and pioneering spirit.

A vision born in Bertrand Piccard's mind after the success of the first non-stop round the world balloon flight.

The friendship with André Borschberg, engineer and entrepreneur, who leads the technical team.

The commitment of 2 men who want to move the world.

Our #RTW Solar Flights

Before the attempt of flying around the world in 2015 with Solar Impulse 2, the first prototype already achieved successful flight missions across Europe, Morocco, and the United States.

Each landing was the opportunity to reach out to governments, NGOs, universities and schools to spread the message about clean technologies.
