Airsport is more than a school it is a club where you can keep flying, to enjoy, to learn … to explore the skies. Once an air-sporter, always an Airsporter!
Club Airsport was born out of the need to allow pilots with the initial certification, which we also called semi-autonomous pilots, to continue to grow at their own pace. In the meantime, it has grown to much more than that, we offer all kinds of activities, to let the autonomous pilot enjoy an organized offer, where flying safely is central. Some activities are aimed at growing independently in a framework that is not a training, others are purely enjoying a flight accompanied by experts from the region, who will take you to the best places at the given moment.
Our guides are, tour guides, coaches, jacks-of-all-trades, and top pilots. Their objective is to take you to the right place at the right time, to explain the site, the forecast, … They will help you where necessary, learn tips and tricks, sign off your flights, arrange accommodation and transport, help where necessary….
It is the ideal formula to evolve from initial certification to pilot’s license or even certified XC pilot in a budget-friendly way.
