The Circuit De L'Est was a race that took place in August of 1910, starting and ending in Paris. It was less of a case of the first finisher to get the reward, but ANY finisher would get the reward. With a distance of 805 km (500 miles), this race was designed to test the endurance of the aircraft of the day. 35 pilots signed up, 10 showed up, 8 managed to take off for the first leg, and only 2 finished the entire three-day race at all - more than the 0 the organizers had been expecting. The winning aircraft was a Gnome-powered Bleriot XI flown by Alfred Leblanc, having flown a total of 12 hours, 1 minute broken up over the 3 day event. 

Now it's your turn. Hop in your Bleriot XI, put away your moving map, and navigate purely by following roads. The plane doesn't have a compass, after all, and you'll want to pay particular attention to which direction you're heading based on the sun. If you want a particular challenge, fire up the RIP version of the Bleriot and add in some random failures for fun.

The flight plan is as close as I could come to recreating the historic route. I recommend not actually landing at airports (as they didn't have any) but instead pick fields near the towns.

Bon chance!

    Yes, this is the Wing 42 Bleriot XI straight from the wing42 site. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post a link to it here but search for wing42 and you'll find it

    I should say the plane is absolutely superbly detailed and comes with a few variants. Well worth the money
