Flying by light

How would it be, if you could fly by light? Just with the power of solar energy?

This idea 1992 was realized in the draft of the first solar airship in the world: Lotte!

The first vision became ultimately true: Solar airship "Lotte" was built under the direction of Prof. Dr. Bernd-Helmut Kröplin with Airship Technologies GmbH (Germany). In the meantime the first solar airship “Lotte” had numerous flights in service of science and research. And “Lotte” also took part in the world solar race in Australia – just for fun. Until today, “Lotte” is an outstanding paradigma for “Flying by light”.
