Do you feel attracted by Northern and Southern Alps?

If so, Vinon is the right place for you!

In our brand-new facilities, we shall allow you to discover this wonderful soaring site, fulfil all your wishes and offer you several new opportunities:

  • Hiring a two-seater and a qualified instructor for a whole week.
  • Coached solo flights.
  • Group rates specifically meant for airclubs with or without their gliders.

You are not yet an experienced mountain pilot?

If so, Vinon is the right place for you!

Taking-off from our airfield, you will fly above the Durance Valley, from Manosque to Gap, then to the well-known Serre-Ponçon dam, or close to the Pic de Bure, always as if you were flying over flats grounds, and staying permanently within range of an airfield.
With appropriate teaching, you will the graduate to proper mountain flying in optimum safety conditions and discover the “Parcours du Combattant” ( the Obstacle Course ) from the village of Moustiers to the lake of Savines, then further to Saint-Crépin and Briançon, always within range of an airfield.
A large parking area is available for your machines ( along RWY28 N ). So is our clubhouse, with an adequate modern briefing room. You will be warmly welcome at the Office.
Every morning, you will attend an exhaustive meteo briefing. The Club has a fleet of three towplanes, plus an ultra-light tow. These launching means can be increased during the peak season.
Should you have technical problems, you can get valuable help from the workshop, or at the Atelier Régional (ARAPA).
You may have your meals at the restaurant “Le Planeur” on the airfield, accommodation is also available in the club premices or in the neighbouring hotels. You will get free access to the swimming pool.
Have a look at our site, give us a phone call, and visit us as soon as next spring or summer!
