The solar-powered aircraft crossed the Atlantic for the first time


The solar-powered Solar Impulse 2 aircraft, piloted by Andre Borschberg and Bertrand Picard, crossed the Atlantic for the first time without interruption. At the same time, the pilot broke the record of the flight duration of an aircraft controlled by one pilot.

Started in New York, the plane finished on the eve of the Spanish Seville. From Spain, Solar Impulse 2 will fly to Abu Dhabi - there he will complete a round-the-world trip, which began in March 2015. Thus, the aircraft designers want to demonstrate the possibilities of alternative energy.
