Located in the best gliding region in Europe, the AAAstanding for Association Aeronautique d’Aspres welcome you to join the club and enjoy our thermals (up to 12 to 14000 ft) as well as thesouth facing hill adjacent to the airfield.  Aerotowingonly by microlight Ikarus will take you to the lift for a long afternoon flight of severalhours…..

The club operates microlights as well as two vintage gliders :an ASK 13 and a Ka 6E both available to members. Short microlight courses can also be arranged at club rates.

The season starts around Easter up to end of September with a peak during July and August. June is fairly free and open to VGC members with a designated week during the month to be finalized in order not to clash with other rallies.

In order to meet French regulations, radio is mandatory and Flarm recommended. A short duration membership to the FFVV (French gliding federation) is compulsory. Club membership will be around ten euros per flying day.

All charges will be found on our site :  Association Aeronautique d’Aspres or AAA Aspres on Google. Site is being updated for 2017 charges and details.

An independent camping is adjacent to the airfield.
