Solar Airplane Completes Historic Round-The-World Aviation Journey

Congratulations to the Solar Impulse team for achieving an admirable technology milestone for humanity using eco-friendly technology!

The Solar Impulse 2 aircraft landed in Abu Dhabi on July 26, 2016, the original starting point of its 17-leg, 43,000-kilometer journey that began on March 9, 2015.

The Solar Impulse team had used “Engineered to Fly,” a dedicated industry solution experience based on Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, to create its solar-powered aircraft. Applications for 3D modeling of complex structures and composites, digital simulation and full data traceability enabled them to virtually experience the aircraft in its operating environment before it embarked on its record-setting voyage, and be successful with the first attempt.
