La Môle (St Tropez) Competency Check             [ MORE INFO ]

Do you want to land at La Môle?
Since 2019, a new decree governs the use of this particular platform.

Several instructors from our team are approved to deliver this training to you.

Caution ! Your mountain rating does NOT exempt you from this specific training. Moreover, you should be trained for each airplane class you expect to use at La Môle.
Are you unsure of your situation with regard to the new decree? Contact us!

Our training is offered in two phases: a first phase in e-learning, from the comfort of your living room, and a second phase in flight on the La Môle site, on your plane or on one of ours.

The e-learning phase addresses the following points:
  • Airspaces and topography
  • Infrastructures and restrictions
  • Noise abatment procedures
  • La Môle Specific Regulation
  • Decree dated 25 July 2019
  • Visual procedures
  • Instrument procedures
  • A final quizz to make sure you got it !

For the flying part, here is the required process :
  • Perform an aerodrome reconnaissance flight training as pilot with an approved instructor (this course) ;
  • Make a first flight to La Môle as Pilot in command within the next 6 months after this reconnaissance flight ;
  • Then keep your approval current by performing a landing and a take-off at La Môle every 24 months maximum.

Please note : these approvals are class-specific.

Therefore, if you fly on :

- DR400 (SEP land)
- DA42 (MEP land)
- PA46 Meridian (SET PA46)
- TBM 700 (SET TBM)

If you want to land at La Môle with all these airplanes, you will need 4 separate reconnaissance flights, and keep all these privileges current separately by performing a landing and a take-off every 24 months with an airplane of each class.

✈ How can I prove that I did the reconnaissance flight with an instructor ?

Once the reconnaissance flight is done, the instructor will endorse your logbook to certify that the training was satisfactorily completed with an approved instructor. If you only hold an electronic logbook, he can issue a certificate.
