Picture of

Nice GA airport, no landing/parking fee

Nice airport, with a good restaurant on the field. It is close to Toulouse-Blaganc International airport (LFBO) so IFR pilots can do ILS approaches, cancel IFR and go to Lasbordes. With 950m, it is OK for take-offs but landings on QFU16 have a displaced threshold of 140m due to the road. A bit tricky for planes that do not slow down easily like Mooneys. The solution is to do the approach high, with 3 whites on the VASI to clear the road, aim touch down point at the beginning of the runway (before the threshold), do the flare to lose speed and touch down actually at the displaced threshold. Tip when coming from the East to identify the airport: look for the white Ariane 5 rocket mock-up of the Aerospace museum, just next to the airport, across the motorway. A must to visit, by the way.
