Follow the first round-the-world solar flight without one drop of fossil fuel online.
The official opening of the Monaco Control Center (MCC) for the first round-the- world solar flight attempt by Solar Impulse took place on the 10th of February 2015, a project initiated by the pilots Bertrand Piccard, Initiator and President of Solar Impulse, and André Borschberg, co-founder and CEO.
Drawing on the personal commitment of H.S.H. the Sovereign Prince and Monaco’s exemplary commitment to sustainable development and the promotion of renewable energies, the Government of Monaco have chosen to support, alongside the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, the Solar Impulse initiative by housing the mission control center (MCC) on Monegasque territory in the Rainier III Auditorium and Congress Centre throughout the duration of the world tour.
The Monaco Control Center is now operational for the launch of the world tour, and ready to welcome the team of over 40 people to the facilities specifically fitted out for this adventure.
