Easyjet www.easyjet.com, Ryanair www.ryanair.com and BA www.ba.com all offer very cheap and frequent services to Marseille or Nice airports from regional airports (Manchester, Liverpool, E Midlands, Glasgow, Edinburgh etc.) via Luton, Heathrow or Gatwick. Marseille is the nearest airport and is also well served daily by inexpensive and frequent flights. Marseille arrivals can take the rapid direct bus service from the airport to Sisteron from where we provide a FREE pickup. Alternatively if you arrive at Nice, you should take the bus to Sisteron. Full transfer details are provided along with your booking confirmation
It couldn't be simpler - by car we're about a 9 hour drive from the main channel ports. You can drive on motorways avoiding Paris to Lyon then follow the motorway on to
Grenoble. From Grenoble the N75 will take you to Sisteron from where La Motte du Caire is well signposted (D951).
Learning to thermal is the next step in your pilot developement - this can be easily achieved once CP is completed. We offer regular thermalling courses which take our students through the often daunting post CP period. You can learn to thermal in the UK but good thermalling days are often few and far between. Doesn't it make more sense to learn in Alpine France where thermalling conditions are the norm and the weather is much more favourable?
