Landing

Brêt (1020m)

The official Brêt landing, visible from the Pas-de-Maimbré, is located above the village of St-Romain, directly beside the main road. The field, with a slightly slope, is quite technical, especially under sustained thermal conditions. A bus stop is on the main road 50 meters below the landing.

Weather station

A weather station is located at the top of the Chamossaire (200m above the take-off of the Pas-de-maimbré) and can be consulted here. You can also access the data using the application "Wind Mobile" available on iPhone and Android.

Weather

Before flying, it is important to take the weather. There are several websites for this:

It is particularly important to pay attention to the phenomenon of foehn. In our region there are two types of foehn:

The foehn appears most often when the difference of pressures between Lugano and Zürich exceeds 4 hPa. These pressures are available here.

Southern Foehn

If you see a foehn dam on the Simplon, the take-off wind is zero or light. Do not take-off.

Northern Foehn

If the weather station indicates more than 25km/h from the north, do not take-off.
