The Swiss team that built the world's most advanced solar-powered plane is planning to head to the Mediterranean next month.
Adventurer Bertrand Piccard told The Associated Press on Friday that the 2,500-kilometer trip from Switzerland to Morocco will take two days and see stopovers in Madrid and Rabat.
Piccard says the jumbo jet-sized prototype single-seater plane will face new challenges including crossing the Pyrenees mountains and the turbulence over the Straits of Gibraltar before reaching its final destination in the desert city Ouarzazate.
He says the team is aiming for a round-the-world flight in 2014.
The Solar Impulse team has already flown to France and Belgium.
