Mont Blanc by Pipistrel Alpha

The autumnal high pressure system gave us clear skies with a temperature inversion with smooth air. It gave us an irresistible urge to fly through the Alps on the cold, clear day over the lightly misted valleys. We took off from Haguenau airfield north of Strasbourg on the French German border and headed south over the wide Rhine valley. I had filed a flight plan from the eastern VRP to the southern VRP in the Strasbourg CTR; but on first contact, Strasbourg Radar controller gave us instructions to route to the west of their control area. Fortunately I had the alternate route planned as well. A 3 mile wide circular turn set us on course as instructed. Thanks again to the Skydemon software,
