Si2 Said Goodbye to Silicon Valley


After a week of rest at Moffett Airfield, Mountain View, California, Si2 is ready for the next adventure with André Borschberg.

André Borschberg took off on May 2nd 12:03UTC from San Francisco to Phoenix, Arizona. Si2 spent a week in California after Bertrand Piccard’s 3-day flight that marked the completion of the Pacific Crossing. It was a great opportunity to meet with the public and Silicon Valley’s tech companies, to spread the #futureisclean message. The flight is expected to take 16 hours and 23 minutes, crossing 720 miles over the Mojave Desert and will arrive in Phoenix Goodyear Airport at around 4:23AM UTC.
