Flight to Abu Dhabi Postponed

The flight from Egypt to Abu Dhabi today has been postponed to a later date. Due to worsening weather conditions on the ground in Egypt and pilot health, we have decided to prioritize pilot and airplane safety. The engineers will continue to study the weather over the coming days to find the next flight possibility to bring Solar Impulse to its final destination: Abu Dhabi. Stay tuned!

It was not an easy decision for us to postpone the flight. We would like to thank everyone for their excitement and continued support on this adventure. Our engineers will continue to work hard on identifying an open weather window to finish this round-the-world tour.
