Since 2004, ALR has been supporting the activities of SolarImpulse. This activity was initiated by Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg with the goal to fly a solar powered aircraft around the world, thereby making the public aware of the fact that more needs to be done to use renewable energy, and that solar energy can provide an important contribution.
ALR is providing overall aircraft design guidance as well as technical support in many disciplines, management support and - through its extensive network - is recruiting capable engineers for the SolarImpulse technical team. ALR participates in design-reviews to help define the program status and solutions for design and development challenges.
