Piccard lands successfully in Ahmedabad
Bertrand Piccard successfully landed in Ahmedabad, India. It is the first time that Solar Impulse lands on the Asian continent. He piloted Solar Impulse 2 from Muscat, flying across the Arabian Sea over a distance of 1468 km. The FAI will review the distance record claim dossier, and if it is ratified it will supersede the record previously set by André Borschberg onboard Solar Impulse in 2013.
