re: Multiple IATA/ICAO codes

Reply to @dmomper: Right now, there's no capability, but I've added "LSZM" and the extra IATA codes to the keywords, so that they'll at least show up in searches.

re: new info

Uninhabited island

This island in the Pacific Ocean is uninhabited (except by occasional expeditions or cast-aways), and is a direct possession of France rather than part of one of its overseas territories. It does not belong to any Region or Department.

re: LFSL

Reply to @Tgd: Thanks for the update! We're a community-driven initiative, and if you have time, you are very welcome to edit the airport entry to make the changes. If not, then hopefully one of our other volunteers will have a chance to get to it.

Friendliest airport/club

We arrived there in G-FIZZ back in October we were treated to a tour of the museum and biplane aircraft. The club chairman insisted we put our aircraft in the hanger for the night.

Looking forward to returning.

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?

Another complicated airport

Not a great transit airport, not a place you want to be, bad service, lousy shops and restaurants, no resting area.

The place to fly

Chambley is open to civil air trafic ultralight, planes, helicopters are welcome since 2010, AVGAS, JET A1, UL91 are avialable, a restaurant and a maintenance station for aircraft are on the field. there are no landing fees for the moment. Chambley is the location of the biggest hot air ballon meeting of the world : 456 ballons taking off in the same time in july 2017.

Best lunch

The terminal building is sometimes open, if not then you don't pay landing fees. If no ATC then you have to speak French & close your flight plan by calling Rennes or Brest. There is a gate at the left side of terminal, the current code is 1970 then lunch at the Routier café 2 mins walk to the right, (spot the lorries!) Excellent value @ 13euros including wine, not that you will be drinking...

Terminal closure

When terminal closed there is a side gate if you can get the code from someone & then get a fantastic Relais meal two mins walk from front door, 12/50euros for 4 courses, exceptional value.

Multiple IATA/ICAO codes

According to Wikipedia (and verified in IATA code search) this airport has three active IATA codes: "BSL (Basel) is the Swiss code, MLH (Mulhouse) is the French code and EAP (EuroAirport) is the neutral code."

Is there a good way to store all three values in the IATA field? Maybe all three codes separated by delimiting characters something like "BSL/EAP/MLH"? Or must there only be one IATA code?

It also appears to have two ICAO codes: LFSB and LSZM.

Rwy is 04/22 instead 05/23

There is an error about the rwy

new info

Previous comment seems no more valid: the field has now been assigned an ICAO code LFJY and is home to at least one aeroclub.

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!!)

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!

Displaced threshold

QFU 09, the threshold is displaced when the car racetrack is used.

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.
