Get updates when we are flying during the following weeks.

This Friday, September 5th, will live long in my memory. This evening at around 18h, after spending more than three years organizing, thinking, and supervising our engineering team as they built #Si2, I will fly it for the first time.

This maiden flight in Si2 will be a very special moment for me. One more step towards the launch of our round-the-world flight. I am delighted that Bertrand too will make his first flight in the coming days and we’ll be able to share our impressions!

This maiden flight in Si2 will be a very special moment for me. One more step towards the launch of our round-the-world flight. I am delighted that Bertrand too will make his first flight in the coming days and we’ll be able to share our impressions!

When I observe the progress made since the first main-spar (the wing’s backbone) fractured during a load test in 2012, I am full of admiration for the energy displayed by the entire team: Mission Across America in 2013 with Si1; Si2 assembly; presentation in April, first flight in June, virtual flight around the world this spring ... And it's not over yet! There are still quite a few test flights to be carried out, and what’s more we still have to organize all the national government approvals needed before we can begin our journey on March 1st next year.

Come watch the take-off at around 6pm (UTC +2) at Payerne airbase, as part of AIR 14.
