  • The Gourdon site and the Loup valley have for decades enabled the successful holding of competitions and performance flights. This is only possible thanks to a courteous relationship between the free flight community and locals.
  • Respect local residents and land owners. Be courteous and apologize in case of landing on private land.
  • Drive carefully on local roads particularly on the
  • Embarnier takeoff access runway.
  • Use carpooling to minimize traffic.
