Breaking News : Solar Impulse II has successfully completed its epic round the world voyage.

An outright success for the solar powered aircraft ' Solar Impulse II ' which has managed to circle the globe landing at dawn at the airport of Al-Bateen in Abu Dhabi, UAE, on Tuesday, July 26 2016 from where it departed on March 9, 2015.

CMB has always supported this ambitious project and is particularly proud of this technological and human achievement and congratulates the two Swiss pilots, Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg, in having held on to their dream and surmounted the many obstacles the fates had in store. An adventure that was originally planned to last five months and finally ended, after a year and four months of great effort, in achieving ultimate success and to become the stuff of legend.

In shifts, by day and by night, piloting in very cramped cockpit at 80 km/hr using stored energy from sunlight in their batteries, the two pioneers traveled 42,000 km without using a drop of hydrocarbon fuel in their goal of promoting the use of renewable energy. Firmly convinced that clean energy can achieve the impossible, they believe that very soon there will be passenger flights in electrically powered aircraft able to be recharged at ground level; a necessary first step in the ultimate goal of solar powered flight. We believe that these two courageous men have more surprises up their sleeves - we take our hats off to them !
