VF042 IFR LFBD Merignac to LFMN Nice, France

On Tuesday 31st August 2021, at 8pm BST (1900Z) we will host an IFR flight from LFBD Merignac to LFMN Nice, in France.

We are an inclusive, relaxed group – we recognise that some may not have flown IFR before, or operated the commercial jets, so encourage mentoring from more experienced pilots as much as possible. Although take-off is scheduled for 8pm, it may be worth arriving early to setup your aircraft, and/or to help others set-up theirs. Use the streaming functionality in Discord!
