Phileas Fogg famously circumnavigated the world in 80 days, this is now your challenge to replicate the feat, if you wish to accept.
Fogg departed London by train at 20:45hrs on Tuesday 2nd October 1872, to achieve his goal he was to return by 21 December.
Aerosoft are running a chance for pilots to re-enact this challenge (although it was before the first flight). The legs are all under 1,000 nm so should be within the range of most if not all our aircraft.
