The Eraole and the Solar Impulse 2 are setting records under harsh conditions.

French pilot Raphael Dinelli will fly solo across the Atlantic using solar power and algal biofuel. Two Swiss pilots are circling the world on solar power alone.

They are doing so with a rather small airplane (compared to previous solar fliers) known as SunSailor.
