Remark Photographer
An overview of the famous Altiport tucked away in the mountains of Courchevel! First time I've done some spotting on skis! ;-) The field, at a height of 6581ft has a runway 525m in length and slopes up the mountain at 18.5% - an amazing landing site!

OMG! what an incredible airport! Excelent comment about the landing procedure by the visitor below. Ten stars pic. Regards, Frank

A visitor from Venezuela posted Thu July 30, 2009:
You could try X-Plane 9 which actually supports sloped rwys, too bad I don´t have the Europe Scenery

A visitor from United States posted Mon November 3, 2008:
"Hey, I have an idea. Let's make a runway, but not just any runway. No, this one will be on the side of a mountain, and we'll angle it so it slopes inconsistently and isn't horizontal!"

"It's genius..."

A visitor from Switzerland posted Wed June 4, 2008:
Great Picture. It's a marvelous, little Airport, and a big experience to start and land on it. (Also in MS-Flightsimulator 2004 - for it is an Airport-scenery-file on avsim.com available.)

Just impressing

A visitor from Norway posted Tue August 15, 2006:
Nice place. And look at that sweet little blue helicopter near the house. Not to forget the other helicopter and the plane. All in all a nice pic.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue June 13, 2006:
It is so different from english landscapes our flying clubs are not quite so remote.

A visitor from Australia posted Fri April 21, 2006:
This photo is absolutely amazing wuth the mountains int the background. i love the sight of a little airfield in the middle of these big mountains covered in snow.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed March 1, 2006:
Couldn't we make getting in and out of here an Olympic sport? ;-)

A visitor from United States posted Mon February 20, 2006:
If only the runway in fs2004 was sloped

A visitor from France posted Thu February 16, 2006:
The aircrafts land up hill and take off the down hill. Landing on the snow and slope is a great experience. As soon as you're on the ground you put full power again to keep going up to the flat parking area. My first altitude landing experience was there....

A visitor from United States posted Fri February 10, 2006:
It really is too bad that the Courchevel runway in FS2004 is just normal...not sloped. :(

A visitor from Portugal posted Mon January 30, 2006:
Very nice

A visitor from El Salvador posted Fri January 20, 2006:
Great picture

A visitor from Sweden posted Wed January 18, 2006:
Beautiful! Makes me wanna go skiing...
...and flying.

A visitor from Canada posted Wed January 18, 2006:
Great Pic! Perfect view of the mountains. Which way do aircraft take off and land?

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 11, 2005:
Perspective, resolution, light, composition all excellent

A visitor from Greece posted Mon October 31, 2005:
One of the most scaryest airfields of the world, if not THE scaryest. I tried to land there with a piper and after 5 crashes I finally made it. All that of course, while playing FS2004. ;-)
