On 26th July as Bertrand Piccard landed his plane at Abu Dhabi world history was truly written. Bertrand had completed the first round the world flight in a solar airplane. This adventure started 13 years ago when the Solar Impulse team came together to prove that flying 40,000km around the world without fuel was possible.
They had a vision of using renewable energies, clean techs and solar energy to fly around the world, protecting the environment and achieving this seemingly impossible goal.
