About to be privatised

Several French airports are going to be run by private operators, including this one:

LFLP Briefing

Airport is surrounded of mountainous terrain. Missed approach from rwy 04 requires strict inherence to speed limitations ( max 160kt) during climb and turns. Check your applicable minima when you have only received verbal/ theoratical briefing/training. In such case be aware that you are limited to daylight operation min VIS 5000m and CEIL 3000ft only.

Consider required performance for Landing due to displayed thresholds on both rwy ends. (lowest LDA 3,5°GS 3694ft or Visual 4423ft only!!)

The restaurant on the airfield is excellent

I was there with some friends yesterday Thursday 21 May, 2015. Flying in from Luxembourg (ELLX)

We had lunch at the restaurant on the airfield.

The "entrecôte" (steak) I had was the best I ever ate during my past (65) years: tender, no fat, tasty.

BTW, the landing tax was 8.5 €, quite reasonable.

Aeroclub de Valloire <aeroclub-de-valloire.com>

This backcountry airstrip opened in 1969 as a facility intended for mountain S & R and early holiday ski activity in the Valloire's mountain resort.

Since and so far, whatever changes came to happen in the economic, touristic, and regulatory field, we have been the only local aeronautical facilitators and actors.

Large Airport

Friendly for GA. Jet traffic also on the airport. In a D airspace. Nice scenery of the Mont Blanc when the weather permits.

Thanks, I've made the adjustment.

Wrong map display for LFHV

Actually the airport is slight North of the current location of the small aircraft icon. You may want to adjust the map parameters in the Main page. Hope it helps.

re: frequencies

Merci de votre avis. J'ai changé le fréquence A/D. Qu'est-ce que c'est un "arrivée hub"? J'en ai jamais entendu, mais je ne connais pas bien la términologie française.

Picture of

frequencies

Good morning,

Dans la page des fréquences attribuées, il semble que l'A/D (approach) soit 136.075 Mhz et que 120.225 correspond au guidage radar lors des arrivées HUB (n'est pas ouvert constamment, seulement lors des arrivées hub).

Picture of Luco67

Facilities

During 2012 year, we hope to have both re opening of the fuel station (with credit cards, 100LL, JET and 95UL) and the restaurant.

Exquisite destination

Landed my Bonanza V35B there in July 2008. Absolutely gorgeous spot. Small inn right next to the airstrip, so you can eat lunch and sip coffee or beer while looking across the valley at Mont Blanc.

EastJet?

Does anyone know of any airline that uses this airport? I think it would be great for someone like EasyJet to open up this route.
