What is the challenge in the GOAL flight?

The GOAL distance options are Closed Course flights. This means you need to declare the start and finish points. For a Closed Course the Start and finish points are identical, you need to finish at your start-point and “close” your course. Read up in the SC3 code for the definitions of the waypoints.
