Annecy SIV / Pre Comp Training

Availability : Yes


This is an SIV topup course followed by a XC pre-comp training week before the Chabre Open 2020.


This year, we are offering a SIV top up course where pilots can choose to do 2 SIV flights each on Monday and Tuesday (29/30th June) morning and then fly XC in the afternoon. So weather permitting, pilots will get 4 flights to practice manoevres over the lake, with Jocky in the boat. This topup SIV is best for pilots who have already done a SIV earlier and want a few top-up flights to practice and perfect manourvres like stalls and spins.

On Wednesday 1st July, we plan to move to Laragne, where pilots can spend the next few days getting familiarised with the area and routes that are usually flown during the Chabre Open competition, with top comp advice about strategy and mindset from Jocky.
