Supporters Program

SOLAR IMPULSE CANNOT SUCCEED WITHOUT YOUR HELP!

 

The major partners cannot do everything. Your financial contribution to the Solar Impulse Foundation is essential for the technological development of the project.

 

“How to support Solar Impulse’s values?...”

It was in response to growing public interest that we created the Supporters Program. It allows anyone to demonstrate his attachment to the project and its values, in particular the pioneering spirit, innovation, and the promotion of technologies aimed at energy saving, adoption of renewable energies and improved respect for the environment.

Do you think that the pioneer spirit can improve the world? Are you concerned about the future of our planet? Do you think that our society should turn to renewable energies?

If you share these ideals, join the circle of Solar Impulse supporters and, with us, become an Ambassador for a world that is not dependent on fossil energy!

By becoming a Supporter you will discover what Solar Impulse is about from the inside, your voice will contribute to the project, and you will be part of an epic adventure!

The Solar Impulse team always enjoys presenting our airplane wherever we land, and our stop in the Washington D.C. area is no exception.  Today was our public day here and the thousands of excited visitors that came to visit energized everyone on the team.

This particular public day is special because we are hosted on site at the National Air and Space Museum, Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center. The Center is one of the world’s premier museums for aviation and space history, engaging the public while providing inspiration for conquering new frontiers.

Next door to our display tent we can see the massive hangars of the Center, which house hundreds of planes and space vehicles, including the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, the fastest jet in the world, the prototype of the Boeing 707, a Concorde supersonic airliner, and the retired space shuttle Discovery.

As we answered questions and told the Solar Impulse story for today’s visitors, we couldn’t help but think about the pioneering efforts memorialized in the museum next door. Did the designers of the Concorde know that their plane would one day be museum worthy for its groundbreaking achievements? Did the architects of the Space Shuttle imagine that they would be the public face of human space travel for 30 years? It’s humbling to think about our own work with these incredible vehicles so close nearby.

One thing we know is that Solar Impulse and these giants of history share a common pioneering spirit – a commitment to push the very limits of what is possible to accomplish amazing things.  And we know that the next pages of history are as yet unwritten – and we can make clean technology a big part of the next chapter.  Who knows --maybe one day we’ll even be able to see Solar Impulse displayed in a museum as an important step in achieving a clean technology world!
