There are obvious restrictions on some airspace across the US but a fundamental tenant of the Icarus Trophy is that it is an adventure and a race. That means it's unsupported and unscripted so you're free to choose your route. We are selecting the start and the finish and any checkpoints. But the rest is down to your cunning - or lack of.
