A high altitude, ultra lightweight aircraft has broad area relatively flat wings, and is provided with solar cells on its upper wing surfaces, and long wavelength, infrared responsive cells on its lower wing and fuselage surfaces, to provide enough power to maintain the aircraft aloft at high altitudes indefinitely. The aircraft is intended to fly at altitudes of about 60,000 feet to 110,000 feet, at speeds in the vicinity of 70 to 200 miles per hour. A battery or fuel cell and electrical system is provided to store excess electrical power and to supply ...
