Back from the Alps

We have spent 2 weeks in Aubenasson, over the "Roche courbe" moutain.
This is a very nice place, were you can fly and benefit from the family as well !

Here is a summary of the flights perfomed from this airfield, between 50 and 440km per flight. It is possible to have some wave, both with NW & S winds.

Flying to Le Pic de Bure from Ceüse

Lac de Serre-Ponçon

Grand Veymond & Mont Aiguille

Glacier Blanc ...... & Glacier Noir

Finally a nice "shot on top"

This was a very nice holyday period !
