This Saturday November 18th we will be venturing into the French Alps starting in the region of Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, tracking east into Alpes-Maritime close to the border with Italy. We land at the high-altitude Isola 2000 airfield (LIVI; just in France, but somehow has an Italian ICAO code?). From this cul-de-sac we retrace our flightpath a little and then turn northwest towards Lac de Serre-Ponçon. Following the Durance river north, past Briançon, we will end up at the high-altitude Val Thorens Alti Airport (LFVL; 8068 ft).
6 Landings in total, 181 nm. Highest point to pass at around 11,000 feet (approaching Val Thorens).
