Hello Franco flyers
I am touring down to Montpellier next week in our Jodel DR1050 ( Rotax 912S conversion) G-AWWO and then returning via Bordeaux on Thursday 31st May.
I am giving a lecture on human powered flight at Bordeaux university on Friday 1st June. Then returning to UK on Sat or Sun.
I looked at landing at the international Bordeaux airport but it was too expensive.
Hopefully I can land at Saucats, park and get a lift into town near the UV and find accommodation ( I don't like to book till 1-2 days before, till I'm sure of the weather).
It will be me, wife Judy and daughter Phoebe.
All weather dependant - but that's our plan.
Any tips on avoiding ZRTS etc would be welcome - I am using Skydemon and the AZTBA charts on SIA website.
See you soon I hope
