The solar-powered plane aimed at reaching the stratosphere made an initial low-altitude test flight over Swiss town of Payern on May 5. The test flight lasted six minutes, according to the Swiss Telegraph Agency (ATS), Kazpravda.kz reports with reference to TASS.

The Swiss test-taker Raphael Domjan said the task was not at all to set an altitude record during the first flight. A detailed analysis of the first flight will be carried out later, the ATS notes.

Further tests are scheduled for next week, and the flight to the stratosphere itself - for 2019.

The single-engine SolarStratos weighs 450 kg, is 8.5 meters long and has long wings. The task is to climb to an altitude of 25 000 meters, which in the world has not yet been achieved.
