2D CAD Designer - Textiles
About Solar Ship
Solar Ship is a world leader in developing hybrid aircraft; combining two forms of
lift: static lift, generated by a buoyant gas, combined with the aerodynamic lift of
a wing. This creates the capacity to fly large loads over long distances without
the use of fossil fuels. It has extremely short takeoff and landing capabilities,
making Solar Ship the ideal aircraft for accessing remote areas.
We are united in our vision to enable access to and improve the health of remote
communities where other types of transport remain ineffective.
