A FANTASTIC EXPEDITION
Throughout history, all great dreams have been considered impossible before they were accomplished. Today, the adventure must continue by realizing a great epic in the service of environmental protection and renewable energies, intended to create enthusiasm around the climate challenges of the 21st century.
Bertrand Piccard, Dorine Bourneton and Michel Tognini embark on an expedition aboard SOLAR AIRSHIP ONE, a 100% electric airship, for the first non-stop round-the-world flight without fuel.
A world tour from West to East flying close to the equator: more than 40 000kms to cover in 20 days at an average altitude of 6 000 meters.
An amazing challenge
Three pilots will be needed to accomplish this feat.
Bertrand Piccard, a pioneering in his genes, will be teamed up with Dorine Bourneton, the world’s first disabled female aerobatic pilot, and Michel Tognini, astronaut and fighter pilot.
