Endeavoring to reach Hawaii from Japan to encourage the use of clean technologies (#futureisclean), the solar powered aircraft of Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg achieved the longest exploration leg of the Solar Impulse’s Round-The-World mission.
At the controls of Solar Impulse 2, André Borschberglanded safely in Kalaeloa on July 3rd at 05:55 local time, after a perilous non-stop flight of 5 days and nights.
« What André has achieved is extraordinary from the perspective of a pilot. But furthermore, he has also led the technical team during the construction of this revolutionary prototype.
This oceanic flight to Hawaii demonstrates that if technological solutions exist to fly a plane day andnight without fuel, then there is potential for these same efficient technologies to be used in our daily lives, and to achieve energy savings to reduce CO2 emissions.
We want to inspire our supporters to add their voice to the message on futureisclean.org: a website serving as a petition to convince governments around the globe to implement the necessary clean technology solutions and help ensure that the United Nations’ upcoming Conference on Climate Change (COP21) is successful in renewing the Kyoto protocol this December in Paris. »

Neamedia is producing the official Little Prince figurine.
This 10 cm tall PVC figurine represents the Little Prince with his yellow scarf floating in the wind. Directly inspired by Saint-Exupéry’s orginal watercolors, the figurine gives life to the character imagined over 70 years ago.
Since 2006, the Schaffhausen luxury watch manufacturer has maintained a cordial partnership with Saint-Exupéry’s heirs and their charitable organization, the Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Youth Foundation.
For instance, back in 2013, IWC Schaffhausen celebrated the 70th birthday of the highly popular novella « The Little Prince » with the launch of two limited special editions: the Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar Edition « Le Petit Prince » and the Pilot’s Watch Mark XVII Edition « Le Petit Prince ». With these, the Swiss watch manufacturer pays tribute to one of the best-selling books in literary history, written by legendary writer, pilot and adventurer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
Like these two previous references, yhe new products The big Pilot watch (réf. IW500908) and the Pilot watch Edition (réf. IW371807) will support charity projects selected by the Antoine de Saint-Exupéry fundation for the youth.
