NEWS FLASH: Flying to Hawaii

Monday 29th June 2015

A possible window for a flight to Hawaii on June 28th, was identified. Si2 took off at 18:03 UTC from Nagoya, with André Borschberg at the controls, and preferred waiting the point of no return before communicating about it.
Solar Impulse tries once again to make a historical oceanic flight that will last at least 5 days and 5 nights non-stop. Endeavoring to reach Hawaii from Japan to encourage the use of clean technologies, the solar powered aircraft of Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg attempt the longest and most challenging exploration leg of the Solar Impulse’s Round-The-World mission.
