LAUNCH AREA

The land is protected by an air show order and TRA (Temporary restricted area). Only the Flight Director will give the permission to enter. The aerodrome frequency is 119.55.
BADGES
Wearing a badge or wristband is required to access “Ballonville Pilote” and the launch area. You must put the pass on your vehicle which will have to access on the airfield. There will be no replacement if lost.

GAS

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.
With very few exceptions, refueling hours are as follows: from 08:30 am to 11:30 am, and from 08:30 pm to 11:30 pm. On July 26th : 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm and from 8:30 to 11:30.
CAREFUL: if the flight director cancels a flight, it is forbidden to enter, take off, land, fly, and fly over the TRA. If a flight is cancelled, the gas station is closed.
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.
