AIRSHIPS - Solar Plane Pilot Midway Through 72-Hour Sim


Solar Impulse - virtual flight 2012
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VmkoiMDNO8Q
The first airplane, HB-SIA (pictured above), has a wingspan of 208 feet. It was powered by four 10-horsepower electric motors drawing power from nearly 12,000 solar cells. Cruise speed was less than 50 mph. The new airplane will be larger, with a pressurized cockpit allowing the pilots to climb to nearly 40,000 feet.
The second Solar Impulse airplane, known as HB-SIB, is expected to begin flight testing this spring.
