The public can visit the plane from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Hangar 111 at Kalaeloa Airport on Midway Street in Kapolei. The public will be able to view the aircraft and meet the crew. Parking is available along Midway Street. The Department of Transportation said those interested in attending the event on April 2 are urged to register online.
The plane has been stationed in the hangar since landing in July when Solar Impulse 2 pilot Andre Borschberg arrived in Hawaii after five days and nights in the air, marking the longest solar flight both by time and distance.
The Department of Transportation said the date of the event may change to April 3, depending on weather conditions.
On March 26, students and staff from University of Hawaii and Honolulu Community College will be able to visit Kalaeloa Airport to learn more about the plane. The event on March 26 is not open to the public.
The earliest possible date for Solar Impulse to depart for the mainland, as part of its round-the-world adventure, is April 15.
Hawaii was first of four U.S. destinations for the plane. Since leaving Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, in March, the plane has traveled to Muscat, Oman; Ahmedabad and Varanasi, India; Mandalay, Myanmar; Chongqing and Nanjing, China; and Nagoya, Japan.
