AERONAUTICAL ENVIRONMENT

Carte Espace Supérieur - © SIA
Situated at 2h from Paris by TGV, the Merville-Calonne airfield has been historically dedicated to flight training.

Facilities:

The infrastructure dedicated to flight consists of: a 1,000m grass strip, a paved 1,840m RWY 22 with instrument approach lights and full night capacity, approach locator with ILS/DME and on RWY 04 an approach locator with DME and GNSS Rnav

Weather conditions:

For IFR and VFR, Merville has a temperate western climate with varied and changeable weather conditions exposing students to flight in "real weather" (crosswind, low visibility, icing, turbulence) and the associated decisions.

Environment:

The proximity of complex TMAs with dense traffic (Paris, London, Brussels, Amsterdam and Luxembourg) along with systematic use of English radiotelephony are a great training asset.
