Semaine d'Aviation de Lyon
Lyon, France, May 7th - 15th, 1910

Results


Grand Prix de la Totalisation des Temps
Highest total flying time during the meeting.
These are the official results. According to the meeting program ten minutes were deducted for each day the pilots didn't fly at least five consecutive laps. This is not consistent with the results reported day by day in the press, according to which both Van den Born and particularly Legagneux flew longer.
50,000 francs of the prize money were donated by the City of Lyon.
