Solar-powered plane makes first flight in Switzerland

August 18, 2019


A solar plane has made its first flight in
Switzerland ahead of an attempt to fly around the world next year. The revolutionary plane which can fly day
and night without fuel, is as light as a car and is the product of 12 years of research. This is the first aeroplane ever which was
unlimited endurance, can fly day and night, can fly a week, can fly months. And for this
it uses the sun and only the sun in fact to propel the aeroplane. That’s the only source
of energy, collecting everyday enough to fly through the day, enough to store it, to fly
through the night and be able to continue the following day. Running on solar energy to power its 17,000
solar cells, if tests are successful, the plane is set to make it round the world in
five consecutive days and nights in March 2015.
