Aussie Group Flights Team - Andorra Ski Planes

Join us as we discover the recently enhanced areas around Andorra. As there is plenty of snow around, we will choose Ski Planes for the first time in these events.

IMPORTANT: As this is a short route (only 74nm) please restrict your aircraft to the slower variety, or it will be all over in the blink of an eye.

We will start our journey in La Seu D Urgell(LESU) Eastern Spain and make our way to La Cerdanya(LECD) also in Spain. From here we will make our way into Andorra via a number of Ski landings. One in a field, one next to a Ski Resort, one on the top of a Mountain and one on an ice lake. During the route, you will need to climb up to about 9,500’ to clear the terrain and navigate valleys containing Andorra’s towns. Finally we will make our way back to our starting airport - La Seu D Urgell(LESU).

Details to follow. Hope you can join us.


Regards, Paul
