Records

After winning the Berblinger Prize in 1996, icaré was kept in operation and improved continuously.
Always the idea was to make solar powered flights along great distances.
Already on 17. June 2003 project leader Prof. Voit-Nitschmann succeeded to fly in Germany from Aalen to Jena with a flight distance surpassing 300 km.
Shortly thereafter FAI defined the international record class of "solar powered aircraft", where now world record may be established.
Record pilot has done since 2010 many flights with icaré 2, which have been documented for FAI, the following list shows the current list of record claims:
