Caran d'Ache and Solar Impulse are working together to write a fascinating, high-tech aviation adventure. Caran d'Ache is on board as a special partner and official supplier of the writing instruments used by the two pilots as they attempt to fly around the world using only solar power. The family-owned Geneva company is now privileged to include Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg among its Brand Ambassadors.

The carbon theme of this pen represents the high-tech materials used in the aircraft, and its ultra-thin package carries the signatures of the pilot Bertrand Piccard and the co-pilot André Boshberg. It is a unique special edition that will appeal to all those who are inspired by this human and technological challenge.

Si2 has arrived in Europe after 71 hours and 8 minutes of flying over the Atlantic Ocean
What a moment to remember! Bertrand Piccard has safely landed in Seville, Spain after spending 71 hours and 8 minutes flying across the Atlantic Ocean in a solar airplane, welcomed there by André Borschberg. He took off from New York City at 6:30AM UTC, 8:30AM CET, 2:30AM EDT on June 20th and has finally reached Europe after a spectacular flight. Charles Lindbergh completed the first transatlantic flight in 1927 from New York to Paris, and now Bertrand Piccard brings aviation to the next level with clean technology. I bet you Lindbergh never imaged a solar airplane could do the same.
