Question
I'm writing a novel and am looking for answers to the following two questions:
1.  the name of the Swiss mountains one would fly over from Geneva to Lyon, France,
2.  assuming one flew in a single engine plane around in 1940, about how long would it take to fly from Geneva to Lyon?
   Thanks for any help,
Steve

Answer
Hi Steve,

There are some rather low Mountains the Jura that reach to about 1700 meters ( 5100 ft) which are easy to fly over.  Or conversely you could also fly from Geneve to Lyon by following the Rhone river.  As a plane at the time could fly directly something less than 70 miles (113km) depending on the plane it could be done in well under an hour.  Hope this helps
