And we keep going...
Now comes the time for a new challenge. Since the previous 4 months showed a great success for a Online Challenge Day, we are pleased to announce they are back for a few more months!
Here are the details of the Online Challenge Day, on 1st February 2022 :
We are going for an adventure, in the most northern region of France, full of history and great landscapes, flying VFR with our favorite light-ish aircrafts. The occasion to (re)discover some not-so-famous little airfields here and there.
The following airfields will be covered for the challenge: Lille (LFQQ), Albert-Bray (LFAQ), Amiens (LFAY) and Calonne (LFQT) will be staffed and ready for you to bring your wings.
Take-off from wherever you fancy, from one of the airport in the list above and fly to adventure! Can you touch & Go to every airports involved that night? Or at least cross all their airspace!
Don't worry, covering all of them should take you about 1 hour.
Now you know us a bit better, you know we would stop just there! Lille (LFQQ), Albert-Bray (LFAQ) and Calonne (LFQT) airports actually have a full ATS service, however Amiens (LFAY) only get an AFIS service! Yay!
