    Guided XC Week In Savoie - French Alps, Annecy, Bauges, Aravais region

    This Guided week in the French Alps is open to qualified pilots with at least 30 hrs experience (preferably more) to Introduce you to the delights of XC and thermal flying in this magnificent region.

    Too many years have passed since Axis regularly ran trips here, and we have put that right. The last two trips in June were enormously successful, with lots of XC Kms and big fun had. This is unquestionably one of the best places in the world to fly XC. Not only is the flying great, the conditions are often at their best in May/June, and the scenery is stunning, with some snow still on the high peaks.

    The Course will be run by Steve Millson and Chris White, possibly assisted by Craig Jenkins, a local and hugely experienced commercial tandem and xc pilot.

    Between us, we have a wealth of experience in the area and know all the best places to fly and how to stay away from the crowds.if the conditions are good, this place is amazing.

    All aspects of mountain flying will be covered, with some thermal guidance on radio for those who need it, route planning, transitions, local weather, valley winds, convergences, and other technical aspects of XC mountain flying.

    The accommodation is the lovely chalet-les-vernets (see pics); close to Albertville and many of the sites we want to access. The chalet sleeps 12  It is a nice chalet, not luxurious, basic, comfortable. Breakfast inc
