To follow a given flight path, to identify the maximum number of photographs and groundmarkers.
From the Grange Dieu, Levroux air strip, the pilots will fly through the initial point (IP) from where they will have to follow the line until they find a groundmarker on the line. From that point they fly to the start of L2 (TP1). From the entry of L2 (TP1), they follow the line until they find next groundmarkers. From that point they fly to the start of L3 (TP2). From the entry of L3 (TP2), they follow the line until they find the final point (FP)
All along the flight path, the competitors will need to identify a number of photographs on the line given to them by the organisors and mark them on the map upon their return.
After FP, they fly to Grange Dieu, Levroux and proceed downwind round a final groundmarker prior to final approach, and fly very low over the timing deck. The time will be recorded when the timing gate is passed. The pilot will then land and stop in landing deck.
