Terminal closure

Went this week and terminal openish! Chambre de commerce man there to pay landing fee to & bar open.

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!

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.

Tour de piste & seuils décalés

La mise à jour de la carte VAC précise :

. les Tours de Piste (Avion / ULM/ planeurs) se font à l'Est du terrain,

. les seuils de piste sont décalés.

Taken aback.

One of the most congested airports I have ever been in. Good exercise though, as walking is the only way to really navigate through the maze of people, carts and refuse. Surprised that it was so dirty as the French are usually meticulous regarding their public areas.

Airfield Owner.

Many thanks,

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.

Airfield first impression

First time in Pons Avy...After being careful to avoid the Cognac Air Force Base areas all around, max alt 1500 ft QNH and 3000 ft around Cognac CTR when Combat areas activated, we achieve our trip to Pons. Beautiful site, middle of fields and vineyards. Runway with downslope (31), but long enough, with a little hill north of the airfield that gives to the situation a great sighting. Calm and peaceful, sympathetic guys in local airclub. Great experience.

Custom at arrival, lot of headhack ... WELCOME !

Very, very bad souvenirs due to the Custom's welcome.

Either, bar/restaurant/shop: EXCELLENT ambiance, nice & friendly people.

Still, I'll avoid Cherbourg due to custom.

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 ! :)
