The Luxembourg pilots association, UPL-AOPA invites you to the 31st edition of its annual end of summer adventurous fly out to Annecy in the Swiss Alps. Many single engine planes take off from Luxembourg airport and surrounding airfield for an up to 4-day adventurous flying expedition.
You can either join with your own or your flying club’s plane, be it as a pilot or a passenger. We can facilitate the introduction to a pilot for this unique experience. If you are a new private pilot, but you prefer to have an experienced pilot with you, we can facilitate this as well. You can also join this trip by car – alone or together with your friends. Up to you.
Most of the participating small planes (Cessna, Piper, Cirrus, ..) can contain up to 4 persons. They typically fly at a speed of 180 to 300 km/hr. without having the risk for a excess speed ticket of the police camera. The participants consist of pilots, their friends and simply aviation enthusiasts looking for having a good time.
After a couple of hours flight or car drive, you’ll arrive at the LFLP – Annecy Meythet (Annecy Mont-Blanc) Airport , with stunning views of the Alps where we come together.
After check-in at the Ibis hotel, you’ll discover on your own the charming medieval town of Annecy, where you can stroll through the streets
You can also go for a boat rode on the lake or simply relax.
On Friday evening, we enjoy our traditional “tartiflette” evening at Sylvie’s place in Annecy. Afterwards, you can discover the vivid nightlife of Annecy.
Saturday morning, the participants who prefer can fly up to special mountain airfields, named altiports, such as Megève, Courchevel, Méribel, Alpe d’Huez, Corlier or La Motte. You’ll likely switch to a mountain plane such as the famous Musketeer planes, together with a local mountain instructor. He’ll instruct you how to safely land on these mountain altiports. This is the highlight of our fly-out and such a great experience that we are organizing this for 31 years.
After your flying adventure day in the high mountains, you can participate at a cozy dinner at Fretis Restaurant, who serves mountain specialties including fondu, raclette and Grison dried meats. Over here, great stories and experiences are exchanged. For the courageous ones, the nightlife of Annecy is appealing again and even stronger on this Saturday evening.
Some crews return on Sunday back home whilst some others enjoy a relaxing day in Annecy on Sunday prior to return home on Monday.
