Current situation regarding visits

I would lime to visit Cazaux, but understand public visits were not allowed. Is that still the case? If so, is there somewhere outside the base where the aircraft can be viewed?

Domme airstrip

A little gem of an airstrip we 'discovered' by flying down the Dordogne from Bergerac. Suddenly this pretty airstrip set about 1000' above the Dordogne rivet on top of an escarpment came into view and we just had to land there. Local frequency air to air calls in French, but it's very quiet and easy to see if anything is going on. A short walk into Domme and the most perfect omelette at the Hotel Esplenade comes highly recommended too!

French Air Force base

Not open for public use. This base is the home of the French 'fighter pilot' school. Other nations (including Belgium) are training there on the A-jet aircraft. Can be pretty busy and expect student pilots in solo flying around.

Good airport !

Bordeaux-Mérignac airport is, according to me, a good airport : it is clean, not too big so it is easy to see where you have to go, unlike Paris Charles de Gaulle ! This airport offers some interesting destinations in France, Europe and the whole world ! :)

Hi, I would like to visit the airbase in August, if a visit onsite is not possible, are there places on the outside where I could see the active and non active aircraft

Summer 2010 visit

Bergerac was 'fogged in', this was our alternate. Big field but very quite. Twr spoke English and was very helpful. Landing fee less than 4 Euros. Friendly aero club made a coffee for us!

Summer 2010 visit

Great location, easy nav and comms, arrived from the North (Limoges) and bought in via the published VRPs.

Landing fees less than 4 Euros!! I'm moving to France. Easy access to the apron via the Aeroclub de Bergerac so no faffing with security etc. Good cafe/restaurant, coffee good.
