Zephyr completed the record-breaking flight with 2-weeks in the air (336 hours).
Zephyr is a winning machine. Last we reported, QinetiQ’s solar-powered drone had just completed 7-days in the air, and counting. Now, the Federation Aeronautique Internationale (FAI) has confirmed that Zephyr completed the record-breaking flight with a solid 2-weeks in the air (336 hours). If that wasn’t enough to put other drones to shame, FAI found that Zephyr also destroyed records for flight duration for a UAV of its class, and the altitude record for that class at 21,562 meters, or 70,741 feet.
