Alexis Peltier and Michel Laplace-Toulouse finished their trans-Atlantic flying adventure on February 9, 2014. The pair flew a 1957 Piper SuperCub on big tundra tires from the west coast of North America, across Canada, then on to Greenland, and Paris in the summer of 2013. Their trip plan included Canadian stops at Montreal, Sept Illes, Quebec, Wabush, Labrador and Kuujjuaq, Quebec; then on to Iqaluit and Qikiqtarjuaq Nunavut before crossing Davis Strait to Greenland. You'll find maps of their complete trip plan here .
They did the next leg from Paris to Kenya, via the Sahara desert from January 13 to February 9, 2014. You'll find their journey tracker on the web here.
Alexis once held the record as the youngest Canadian pilot, and he's been on some really interesting aviation adventures in North and South America and in Africa. You can read about his Air Adventure personal air safari company here.
