EGMD Lydd – LFQB Troyes Barberey (France)
Track miles: 207nm
Estimated flight time: 1 hours 54 minutes
Flight plan: EGMD – TUKVI – XORBI – AMAXA – KOVIN – LORNI – OKVIG – LFQB
On day one of our adventure, we’re planning to set off from Lydd at around 0830z. The first leg is relatively straight forward. Apart from avoiding the Class A around Paris and some restricted airspace associated with it, there’s not much to worry about. There are a few dog-legs to avoid gliding sites, and jump zones etc.
The four aircraft will be departing about 5 minutes apart.
LFQB Troyes Barberey – LFMD Cannes Mandelieu (TBC)
Track miles: 446
Estimated flight time: 3 hours 48 minutes
Flight plan: (Provisional) LFQB – BAGBI – MEBAK – ROLIR – ARDEG – LUNEL – Aigues-Mortes – coastal vfr route – LFMD
This route is slightly more tricky, because of the higher ground as we pass by Lyon, and the controlled and restricted airspace that dominates the lower ground. Flying past Nimes and Montpelier is pretty congested, and the routes along the coast are at a very low level. I shall be reviewing this route, and depending on weather, may take a different course.
