Subject: We made it!

Dear Gianni,
We succeeded in flying around the world using only the power available from the sun. An historic achievement for aviation and energy, showing the world what is possible and opening their minds and hearts to a better future.

I wanted to thank you for your tremendous support in creating a custom pilot helmet capable of standing up to the extreme demands of life inside the Solar Impulse cockpit. Your commitment to the project and to being here in person time and again to be sure that the pilots got the best and most comfortable fit possible was remarkable and beyond appreciated.

I truly enjoyed working with you and I hope that we can find projects to collaborate on in the future together.

Thank you,
Michael
