For anyone fascinated by aircraft, solar power and/or composites, Solar Impulse is a familiar name. It is the first attempted solar-powered around-the-world flight.
Composite materials are growing in popularity thanks to their extreme lightness and high performance, qualities that have been crucial for Solar Impulse's first world tour.
Solar Impulse’s ultralight composite airframe is a piece of technology that was made possible thanks to innovative collaboration with Toray, Covestro, Decision SA and Solvay among others.
