FLIGHT RULES

Safety means respecting the right of way rules. It concerns each and every one of us. At any time the Flight Director has the authority to stop all flying.

 

Before every flight, please read the pilot information boards "infos pilotes", and place a sticker on your helmet "infos pilotes: OK !".

As stipulated in the French bye-law of April 4, 1996, all training and educational activities are forbidden on after 10 o’clock.

Take-off from any other area than official launch areas (D1-D5 and P1) is strictly forbidden.

Before 9 am and after 6 pm all pilots must maintain 100m safety distance from the hot air balloons.

Flying over the launch sites and local houses is strictly forbidden.

Top landing on the St Hilaire plateau is strictly forbidden for both paragliders and hang gliders.

Hangglider and Paraglider pilots must NOT encroach on the airspace allocated to paramotors.
