This airfield is a very active para and gliding centre. Due to excellent weather conditions and no restricting airspaces around the airfield, expect a busy airport with about 70.000 movements yearly. An ALAT unit used to be based here, but they have left.


The airfield has a single concrete runway positioned north to south and a grass runway next to it. Further to the east there is also a glider winch area. There are some aprons with hangars for civil aircraft to the west and to the north, the last crosses the road towards Tallard. The hangars in the east are for the military aircraft. South of them is an extensive area for glider storage.

Getting There

From Grenoble and Gap take the N85 towards Tallard. The airfield is located at the left side. Take the road towards Tallard to the left and you will pass the airfield at the north side.
