Angels

The Angels Program offers private individuals an opportunity to join in the challenge and experience it from the inside.

 

The Angels are an integral part of the team, an inner circle of people intimately associated with the project. Permanent free access gives them the exclusive right to take part in each high point of the adventure.

 

By supporting the Solar Impulse Foundation, they commit to hope-bearing solutions and to the values that the solar aircraft symbolizes.

> Responsibility 

Let’s move on from the spirit of conquest of earlier centuries to a mindset of respect, sustainability and quality of life. 

> Humanism

Let’s encourage young people, opinion leaders and even politicians to rediscover the desire to meet major challenges, and place human values and a balanced human environment back in the center of discussion.

> Determination

Today's pervading pessimism will not resolve the environmental, humanitarian and economic challenges facing the planet. Let’s shake off our present immobility and implement new solutions with conviction, enthusiasm and a pioneering spirit.

> Innovation

New technologies exist which can save huge quantities of fossil fuels and natural resources without reducing our comfort and quality of life. Let’s apply them!

> Effectiveness

Environmental protection will achieve a consensus only when economically profitable. Let’s make haste to reconcile economic, ecological and social interests.

ANGEL AMBASSADOR/ ANGEL ADVISOR

Symbol and technology: by seeking to get an airplane to fly day and night without fuel, the project wants to encourage us to change our behavior patterns in response to energy and environmental challenges.

Through the Solar Impulse Foundation, contributions made by Angels provide direct funding for communication systems, educational programs and the search for innovative solutions to help develop the solar airplane.  Placed under the official supervision of the Swiss Confederation and recognized as serving the public interest, the Foundation is exempt from paying taxes, and confers on donors certain fiscal advantages.

“It is time for today’s generations to draw inspiration from the spirit of the pioneers who explored the poles and Everest, the stratosphere and the ocean depths, of the men who dared make the first transatlantic or supersonic flights, stepped out onto the Moon and undertook the first round-the-world airplane and balloon flights. Continuing to push back limits, innovating and committing to projects that combine technology and sustainability, this is today’s adventure. This is why I decided to commit to the Solar Impulse project.” Daniel Aegerter, Angel Advisor. Zürich

For a long time we have been looking for an opportunity to organize an event for our Supporters and Angels

This opportunity came with a private Swiss preview in a Lausanne cinema of the splendid documentary made by Henri de Gerlache.

This opportunity came with a private Swiss preview in a Lausanne cinema of the splendid documentary made by Henri de Gerlache. The success of the invitation sent out by Elâ to all our supporters caught us by surprise: we were completely booked out within 4 hours of posting this on our website and making some spaces available for local radio listeners! What a great moment for André and me to share with friends and to remind people that the Solar Impulse message, written in the sky thanks to solar energy, is in fact aimed at the daily lives of everyone, their choices as consumers and their political decisions! We had 500 supporters there and now an equal number of additional ambassadors for new technologies that can be used to save energy and promote renewable energies. We must do it again soon, as we all had such an enjoyable time sharing our ideal.
