Mountain FlyingMountain courses at Gap Tallard are available all year round and are available on a one to one basis or for groups who wish to fly out from the UK in their own aircraft.This course is aimed at those who would like to learn something new and is ideal for the already qualified pilot. The course can be done in both flexwing and fixed wing. The aim is to teach pilots how to make the most out of flight in mountainous regions. This includes landing at the altisurfaces such as Alpe D'Huez or Courchevel. We also fly to some of the more remote strips such as La  Motte Chalancon . These remote strips are perched in a stunning location and are surrounded by the most spectacular scenery. They make an ideal place for a picnic lunch. The course will provide you with the techniques necessary to land on small mountain strips as well as large tarmac altiports. In short landing at these airfields is not only very exciting but also provides the pilot with a real sense of  accomplishment. See our fixed wing video by clicking this link:

Additional tasks on the course include thermal flying and how to make the best out of the aircraft in challenging conditions. The course is based on eight hours of flight time and includes all the classroom briefings . If you want a truly memorable experience that teaches you new things then this is the course for you. If you simply wish to improve your overall level of confidence then this course will also fit your needs.

Gap Tallard is perfectly situated to allow flight to the mountain strips from as little as ten minutes flight time. You can also overfly Mont Blanc as can be seen on our media section.(Note oxygen will be provided if you wish to do this!). If you throw in the fact that we have the best weather for flying in the whole of France then you can be sure that you will not be disappointed.

Course duration 4-5  days (8-10 hours of flying)
