Laragne XC 4

Availability : Fully Booked

£575.00

Laragne is a fabulously versatile place to fly catering for pilots of all levels of experience.

Details

We have been running XC courses and Ozone sponsored competions (Chabre Open) in this area for well over a decade.

Laragne has reliable conditions, and is suitable for all levels of pilot, mainly due to it's huge choice of take off sites, well established infrastructure, infinite array of potential routes and tasks, breath taking scenery and local hospitality.

The conditions in the south of France in May are normally gentle and it must be one of the best ways to start the season and dust off the cobwebs in relaxed and beautiful surroundings with some great flying potential.

On these trips we will be concentrating on airtime and relaxation so we will visit some great sites and have multiple take offs each day to maximise potential.

There are plenty of other activities in this area such as climbing, paddlesport, walking, mountain biking etc. for partners or if we do get any down time.

This is without doubt my favourite place in the world to fly.

Chris.

Flights & Transfers

The plan is for students to fly into Marseilles International airport, arriving on Saturday 19th August. Marseilles is served by many of the low cost airlines throughout the year.

At the end of the week, you can book a flight out of Marseilles, departing late that evening, or spend the evening in Aix en Provence and get a flight on Sunday.

Others choose to drive. (Laragne is a 12-14 hour drive from Calais, with motorway class roads almost all the way).

Or you can travel by train from the UK, which is often cheaper and easier than flying. We will be picking up and dropping off pilots from Aix en Provence TGV station on the way to or from the airport.

Please note, we will not be doing airport transfers for this course.
