VOL À VOILE MONTAGNE NOIRE
Last update 3/01/2023
High above the Lac de Saint-Ferréol, on the western slope of the Montagne Noire ranges, our aerodrome is like a balcony overlooking the plain.
Vol à Voile settled here in 1932 on a simple rocky prairie. The geographical location at the top of a mountain makes it a unique terrain with runways on the hilly landscape. More like a field for aviation than an aerodrome, there are few signs of a typical airfield.
It is also original for its history as a national centre with many records and countless anecdotes. This centre was once an internationally renowned aerodrome, attended by thousands of trainees.
