Solar-powered plane to cross the U.S. in May

Solar-powered plane to cross the U.S. in May | Aviation & Airliners | Scoop.it

The first crossing of the United States by a solar-powered plane is expected to start in just over a month, its creators said on Thursday, as they make final preparations for an attempt two years from now at the first round-the-world flight without any fuel.

Swiss pilot Bertrand Piccard and project co-founder and pilot Andre Borschberg, whose Solar Impulse made its first intercontinental flight from Spain to Morocco last June, aim for their plane to take off from near San Francisco in early May and land at New York's John F. Kennedy airport about two months later.

Being from the "First In Flight" State of North Carolina, I'm very excited about this flight.  I see the end of fossil fuels for some transportation needs in the future...

Suzi Duncan, creator of the Vision air hand control for pilots with lower limb disabilities, a Commercial Pilot & Flight Instructor who herself has a disability. She is a pioneer in the world of disabled aviation and our inspiration.

Flying had always been a dream, as she thought that this wold represent the eptiome of Freedom. However Suzi thought this would be impossible because she had polio. One day in 1990 a friend asked her to come for a ride in his aeroplane... 

I strongly admire this kind of person!
