    Trip to the RSA rally St Yan France 14-18 July

    by Bluebeard » Fri May 28, 2010 9:54 am

    Various flyers from Ireland are planning to go to the RSA rally in July, preliminary plans involve assembling at Chaveney (west of Paris) on 15 July. Currently there are at least 5 interested aircraft.

    The RSA has adopted St Yan (north of Lyon) as an intended permanent home for the rally, which was nearby at Vichy last year. The idea is that, with the support of the local Regional Council, a "European Oshkosh" will be developed over time; so they are making a big effort this year (the Tannkosh organisers may have something to say about this!).

    As plans develop more info will be posted here.

    Sounds like a good plan.. Chavenay LFPX St Yan LFLN :D

    From what I hear one needs to be careful with the Frog customs these days .... I spoke to an unfortunate they fined Eu500 recently for not declaring his aircraft when arriving at a small French airfield on a flight plan from Switzerland - another schengen country :shock:

    Switzerland may be part of the Schengen area but it's not in the EU hence the problem with Customs.
