The Sunseeker III is soon under construction. Plans are to test fly in 2010 and be fully operational in summer 2011.
SunPower corporation is providing solar cells that are 22.8% efficient, which will provide over 5 kW power.
|Today Sunseeker II is the only manned solar airplane flying in the world. It has logged more time in the air than all other manned solar powered airplanes combined. It continues to raise the bar for solar powered aircraft and inspire the world to think seriously about the beautiful future that we can look forward to if we take bold steps today. We look forward to Sunseeker III.|
