That’s right. The world’s first solar-powered flight took off from Dubai today and the amazing thing is, it will only take 5 months for them to circumnavigate the globe!
According to the article: “Neither pilot will be able to stand in the cockpit while flying, but the seat reclines for stretching and its cushion can be removed for access to a toilet.
Armbands placed underneath their suits will buzz if the plane isn’t flying level. The plane also does not have a pressurized cockpit so Borschberg and Piccard will be able to feel the changes in temperature. The pilot’s blood oxygen levels constantly will be monitored and sent back to ground control.”
I bet you can hardly contain your excitement at this marvel of man’s advancement in air travel. Click here to read article in the National Post….
