Go over more than 10 000 kilometres through Europe and Asia, crossing high mountains and facing sometimes-extreme weather conditions with 30 kg tiny aircrafts is a modern challenge in the lineage of the grand historical expeditions. This challenge, the pilots Gabriel Galtier and Fréderic Jacques and their team will raise it by linking Monaco to Beijing in para-engines during a five-months trip. Beyond the sports challenge, Monaco-Beijing is an outstanding human adventure, marked out by exceptional meetings. The movie also advances environmental issues, thanks to the ambitious scientific research program the expedition benefited from, to allow in paraengines to fly with a biofuel specially worked out for this adventure.
