As a result of the events that occurred in 2015, we are seriously rethinking the way we operate.
Unlike previous years, the aerobatics demonstration flights will not take place at the same time as the demonstration show flights and the number of pilots, all chosen in advance, will be fewer than in previous years.
For safety reasons the paragliding aerobatics will only take place on Friday and Saturday, the first day for practice flights and the second day for the actual demonstration.
All pilots must send their enrolment form ahead of the event allowing us to make the appropriate selection. There is no guarantee that pilots enrolling directly at the event will be able to participate.
Also for safety reasons, all flight equipment will be examined before take-off. Two fully functioning reserve parachutes are mandatory for the aerobatics demonstrations.
On Friday, the practice window will be from 1:30 pm until 3:30 pm
On Saturday, the demonstrations will take place between 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm
A mandatory briefing will take place for all participating pilots at 10:00 am at the Mairie (Town Hall) meeting room on Saturday
Enrol ment for all pilots and first briefing: Friday September 23rd, at 10:00 am in the Mairie (Town Hall) meeting room
E-mail enrolment before Friday September 9th, accompanied by an enrolment form: firstname.lastname@example.org
Pilots who wish to take part in the helicopter drop must mention this on their enrolment form and must give details of previous experience of such drops. All requests must be received by September 9th. No late enrolment will be accepted.
Attached you will find the flight rules that you must follow.
