Southern Alps Airspace

As noted on the BGA airspace webpage, many UK glider pilots visit the French Alps. The airspace arrangements can be surprisingly complex, but do ensure the needs of gliding and commercial air transport are safely and reasonably accomodated.

As ever, it is vitally important that pilots respect the rules. The FFVV has a dedicated French Alps airspace webpage here, which includes very important advice from the FFVV in French and English regarding vertical limits of climbs, including in the area of the Pic de Bure.
