Night glow and Burners Song, gas station close at 10:30 pm
Let’s enjoy a larger propane station, unique in Europe! The Gas Station is located near the Chapel in the south of the base. Access is strictly pedestrian and pilots conduct filling operations themselves, under the supervision of expert technicians.
CAREFUL: if the flight director cancels a flight, it is forbidden to enter, take off, land, fly, and fly over the TRA.
In the morning, if a flight is cancelled, the gas station is closed. In the evening if there is Bruners Song, instead of flight, gas station will open: 8:30 pm until 10:30 pm.
Only the vehicle with proper BLUE pass will be admitted in the gas parking lot. Your crews have a PINK pass (without access to the launch field and the Gas Station). You must bring your GAS CARD. Without this card, the organizers will refuse to serve you. You will also need to present the blue coupon (duly filled)
The purge of the gas cylinders for balloons travelling by plane or boat will take place on August 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 3rd & 5th from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Booking at registration is mandatory.
