Airborne 06.23.16: Solar Impulse In Spain, Terrafugia Approval, Stratolaunch

Also: Twin Otter Rescue, #OSH16Coolest Program, AMA, Charlotte-Douglas, Canadian Astros, Hidden Airline Fees, SpaceX Cargo Launch

The flight of the Solar Impulse-2 around the world has had its challenges, and the crossing of the Atlantic Ocean was planned with the utmost care because of this final long-distance overwater leg of the journey. As it turned out, things went so well that the aircraft arrived in Seville, Spain ahead of the original planned schedule. At one point during the flight, pilot Bertrand Piccard blogged that he felt quite tired at the 44 hour point, and that he had to cope with some turbulence over the Azores Islands. Later in the flight he spent some time chatting with Sir Richard Branson. We may be getting closer to a Terrafugia flying car as the FAA has approved a Petition for Exemption filed in 2014 allowing a vehicle in the Transition street-legal airplane c

Solar Impulse-Two was not the only solar-powered aircraft at New York's JFK Airport this last weekend. The ‘No fuel’ Solar Impulse was joined by another ‘clean energy’ airplane that uses a combination of solar, electric and wind-power, which landed at New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport after a 200-mile flight. The Luminati Aerospace Substrata is a 400-pound solar electric aircraft with a 45-foot wingspan. The Substrata employs a blend of solar power, batteries, and what the company calls “wind-harvesting technologies.” The company says the Substrata extracts energy from any wind gradient, which allows the craft to be powered by relatively small battery packs. Recreational aviation comes in many shapes and forms, and one of those is
