The drone of the engines gets louder. In the cockpit test pilot Markus Scherdel gives the thumbs-up sign. Both the pilot and the plane are ready. The prototype slowly starts to move. The air is clear and the snow-covered Alps rise majestically beyond the runway. Scherdel accelerates until he reaches take-off speed. And then the moment the Solar Impulse team has been working towards for the last few months: HB-SIA lifts from the runway and flies a metre above the ground for a distance of about 350 metres. Now were ready for the next phase: the solar flight tests, announces André Borschberg. Keep tuned!
