VF050 VFR Saturday Morning in the Alps

On Saturday 18th September, at 8am BST (0700Z) we take off from Albertville, France on a relaxed VFR flight through the Alps – heading north-east, visiting a number of airfields before stopping for breakfast at Locarno, Switzerland.

There is no “required” aircraft to take part – although if you arrive at each airfield ahead of the group, be prepared to fly circuits while waiting (it’s all good practice!).
