swissnex San Francisco - swissnex San Francisco

olar Impulse is a Swiss solar-powered airplane that will endeavor to fly around the world-without fuel. After achieving the world's first solar night to day flight in 2010 and the first intercontinental flight connecting Switzerland to Morocco in 2012, a coast-to-coast flight across the United States is planned in the summer of 2013.

In honor of the two visiting pioneers piloting this innovative airplane, Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg, swissnex San Francisco and the Consulate General of Switzerland are pleased to invite you to a reception and briefing on Solar Impulse.

Join them to learn how the Solar Impulse project is making leaps in new materials, energy and weight optimization, even production processes, and how it is setting new milestones in aviation history. All of that while serving as an ambassador of renewable energy
