The flight from Phoenix to Dallas, piloted by André Borschberg, amounted to 936 miles (1506 km), breaking the world distance record in the solar aviation category of the FAI. The solar airplane landed at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport on Thursday May 23rd at 01:08 AM CDT (UTC-5).
Solar Impulse’s Clean Generation initiative continued to grow during the 3rd leg across America and with it the interest in the project, its message and the solar airplane. Four public visits were organized – and quickly sold out – and the Solar Impulse team was moved by the sincere welcome of the public and local authorities at Dallas Fort Worth.
