Flight Time

A visual history of my experiences as a private pilot

Mont Blanc

Mont Blanc, the highest peak in Europe

Mont Blanc, the highest peak in Europe.

This flight was from Annemasse, France (near Geneva, Switzerland). My pilot friend Nick, his friend Matt, and I all squeezed into a French-designed Robin DR400 aircraft. I made this video for Nick in lieu of paying for my share of the gas. We took off from Annemasse, flew south to Annecy, then continued up the valley to fly near Chamonix and the Mont Blanc, which is the highest peak in Europe. We paralleled the Alps for about 20 minutes before turning back to the north, towards lake Geneva again. We flew over Evian, France (the home of the famous bottled water) and along the southern side of lake Geneva on our way back to Annemasse. The total flight time was just under 1 hour.

This video is only 4 minutes long, but it is full of exciting views of our experience on this gorgeous day over France.

  1. Hi. I like the way you write. Will you post some more articles?

  2. Great video and writeup Chris!

    Been there myself, five years ago flying from Sion! Three guys in a Robin 400 too. I got to fly her for a few minutes too and I haven’t even begun my PPL course then.

    Amazing sight that Mont Blanc. I have some pics and a video too. It was January and all was white and magical.

What do you think?
