This trip is a real legend. Provence area offers great flying sites and the end of August is the best time to go! We will visit following terrains St. Andre, St. Vincent, Moustiers (around the Verdon River) and La Ragne (Sederon). These sites are popular among the experienced pilots for fantastic thermals and also for beginners who enjoy the late afternoon soaring above the Moustiers with great views over the Verdon Valley. Don’t forget to take your wife, girlfriend, mother-in-law, grandmother and other non-pilot, Provence has lots of free time activities to offer.

This piece of France will simply amaze you with local weather, people, local cuisine, ham and overall friendly atmosphere.

We will organize the accommodation that will meet your requirements. There is plenty of nice family run hotels and local campsites are also luxury, so don’t hesitate to join us on our trip to sweet France.

On our trips we always work minimally in a team of one chief instructor and a driver, however most of the times you are looked after by three and more instructors to give you the maximum value on your XC day. One is flying in the front of the squadron with high performance wing, searching for the best thermals and route and the second pilot is closing the group looking after the slower ones and pilots flying school wings. If you are unlucky and had to lend, there is always our driver here to pick you up. This is ideal way of flying in a group and maximizes your chance for a good flight. Not like the others we do our best to keep you airborne.

*Accommodation – Stay Connected To The Nature

We know that your life is very busy and sometimes could be very stressful and hectic. That’s why we offer staying in the campsites instead of luxury hotels in the summer. We believe that making a barbeque, fire, having a good beer and chat is a real stress relief. Most of our clients even decide to sleep under the stars. The camps we use have all necessary facilities – showers, toilets, fridge, barbecue and social area.

We can provide you with a tent and self-inflating mat, just give us a shout. All you need to bring is your sleeping bag. Quite often we are asked by pilots to get a keg of Czech beer in our van – no problem. We are here to make you happy. At least for one week of holidays forget about your daily stress and enjoy yourself! Customers wishing to stay in hotel will be dropped off in the evening and picked up in the morning for the flying action :-)

Generally campsites cost 6-10 euros/night and hotels between 15-20 euros/night.
