It sometimes happens that the conditions no longer allow a safe take-off, in this case we stop take-offs and observe the evolution of the conditions. A committee of pilots makes the decision whether or not to postpone the flights if necessary. Concerning the pilots already in the air, they will shorten their flights and come to land on our official landings.
Two possibilities: – the aerological conditions do not or no longer allow you to stay in the air in order to ensure a quality service. – the aerological conditions do not or no longer allow safe flying.
Our team keeps you informed of developments on a regular basis.
