April 15th - Work in progress!

Waiting for the 3rd FAI World Championship! We are building the new perimeter airport road, even pedestrian. We completed the future relax area available to all the visitors. Other works are going on to the realization of the methane gas distribution network and to bring water in grid for the gliders. The airport will remain closed to traffic until 3 May for the execution of a new paving of the runway. Helicopter activity will continue regularly.
