Following the launch of funding GoFundMe and sponsorship campaign for the development of Solar powered flights later this year, Shalimar Gilbert will announce his intentions of choosing Greensboro, NC as the location to develop the aforementioned project this year, in 2022. The aircraft will be constructed in sub-assemblies by other companies and assembled in Greensboro, North Carolina, using the latest technology and raw materials available.
The Solar Ray Project aims to develop technologically advanced aircraft which will promote science, aviation technology and engineering. Documenting every step and posting for the world to follow along, the production of which can be used to educate the youth.

About Solar Ray Project
The Solar Ray Project is the idea of an engineering student, Shalimar Gilbert. Shalimar Gilbert was born and raised in Southwestern Virginia. Building an airplane has been a childhood dream of Shalimar ever since his late grandfather took him to see a few WWII bombers at the local airport, which fueled the idea of flying around the world. Today starts his journey to make his dreams come true as he sets to produce solar powered aircrafts in the U.S.A.
