Airbus’ Solar Drone – level 1
Airbus opens a new factory. It makes Zephyr drones. The drones are solar-powered. They fly 18–21 kilometres above the ground. That is very high.
When they fly, they are above the weather. They are above normal aeroplanes. They can be in the air for two months.
Airbus has two Zephyr models. One is smaller and the other is big. The factory is making the smaller one. Its wingspan is 25 metres. It weighs just 75 kilogrammes.
The Zephyr can provide the Internet. It can take pictures and videos, too. It can help in different situations.
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
