Organized every year from 2007 to 2009 and every two years since 2011, Handiflight will see its next edition take place in 2018. But this time instead of inviting you to Gruyère we will leave with two light airplanes to meet other pilots around the world for a 9 months journey. These two CTLS, will be flown by Guillaume (Féral) and Paolo (Poccobelli). They will be alone on board to fly to Australia and then to cross the Pacific and the Atlantic. We offer you the opportunity of flying these airplanes for several periods of two weeks with Paolo or Guillaume as safety pilots on the following areas : Australia (March), New Zealand (April), South America (July) and North America (August).
The requirements are to have a PPL(A) or a Sport Pilot Licence and speak English or/and French. All the aeronautical expenses (airplanes, fuel, taxes, etc.) are paid by Handiflight, but you will have to pay for food, accommodation and airline tickets to join us (we hope to get discounted tickets).
These are not local flights but travelling, which can sometimes be long flights. As you can imagine, it will be impossible to satisfy the wishes of all. I will be solely responsible for the difficult choices that I will have to do. Thank you for your understanding.
If you are interested and you think fulfilling the conditions, thank you for contacting me as soon as possible.
On this map you can find the airfields where powered aircrafts and gliders with hand-controls are available.
