Nice GA airport, no landing/parking fee

Nice airport, with a good restaurant on the field. It is close to Toulouse-Blaganc International airport (LFBO) so IFR pilots can do ILS approaches, cancel IFR and go to Lasbordes. With 950m, it is OK for take-offs but landings on QFU16 have a displaced threshold of 140m due to the road. A bit tricky for planes that do not slow down easily like Mooneys. The solution is to do the approach high, with 3 whites on the VASI to clear the road, aim touch down point at the beginning of the runway (before the threshold), do the flare to lose speed and touch down actually at the displaced threshold. Tip when coming from the East to identify the airport: look for the white Ariane 5 rocket mock-up of the Aerospace museum, just next to the airport, across the motorway. A must to visit, by the way.

Thanks - I've added those as "CTAF" for now, but please feel free to edit them (under the "Pilot info" tab) to be more specific.

It's the people

What a reception. We visited twice in 2011. Once with 5 other CTSWs and later alone. Each time the welcome was exceptional. This included

1. The controller staying late because we were delayed by adverse winds

2. Genevieve - wonderful lady - not only helping us tie down, but running us to our hotel and picking us up in the morning!

3. The parachute club driving us to the local supermarket for petrol as the airfield had run out of AVGAS

We really do like this place!

refuelling and staying over

Campanile hotel 10 minutes away for sleeping and very nice food. The airport is not always open so call first. Nice people good prices like 14 for landing and normal fuelprices. Custom is kind of keen on N tailnumbers.
