Millau is also known in the industry for offering particularly complete and pleasant exhibitions and flying conditions.

The other two sites

One of the advantages of our Causses… is that they’re all around us.

The Pic d’Andan and the Granède are two additional take-off sites facing each other. one is named after the “mini Causse” on which it sits and the second is also a model aircraft area on the Larzac ledges.
