Welcome to the Orbidays !

The Orbidays are the "Get Together" event for all Orbiflyers, past, present, and even to come.

This is not an airshow or even an aeronautical event, but a great friendly celebration under the sign of aeronautics, which brings together Aviation fans.

This is an opportunity for Orbiflyers to meet other Orbiflyers, to see their instructors again, and to tell us about their great aerial adventures that have occurred since their training.

The Orbidays take place on various airports: Rouen, Le Touquet, or as in this photo, Périgueux. IFR Airports of course, but everyone can come with the aircraft of their choice ... whatever it is, turbine, ULM, helicopter, and even with a DC-3 for those who are lucky enough to fly on such an aircraft!

    The Orbidays are also an opportunity for the Orbiflyers to meet with each other and present their aircraft, to share their experience of travel or aircraft ownership, and to glean advice for their projects.

We also often have the pleasure of welcoming manufacturers representatives, many of whom are Orbiflyers themselves, and who sometimes come with demo planes.

The conferences

The Orbidays are an opportunity for us to offer you a serie of small conferences on various themes, presented by instructors, guest experts or even by Orbiflyers: meteorology, technology, beautiful trips, adventures or funny experiences...

Do you have an experience to share? Do not hesitate to contact us to participate as speaker!

The friendly meal

We generally organize a lunch and/or dinner, for those who want to extend the experience together.
Do not forget to register in advance if you want to join the dinner too !

Free Flight Reviews

For those who stay on Sunday, we generally offer to offer a series of Flight Reviews, divided into a ground part and a flight part.

If you hold an FAA Pilot Certificate, you certainly already know what a Flight Review is: this is the training that is required every 24 calendar months in order to be allowed to use the privileges of your Pilot Certificate, and which consists of a part of ground instruction of a minimum duration of one hour, and a part of flight instruction of a minimum duration of one hour also.

For the ground part, several lessons will be given during the day, in free access to all Orbiflyers.

For the flight part, you can either go fly on your plane with one of our instructors present (offered, of course within the limit of available slots and therefore planned in advance) or you can do it later, outside the event.

It's for us a real pleasure to see you all again during the Orbidays.
We hope to see you for the next edition!
