Albacete (LEAB) 2020 - MIL (TLP)

Post by TomHouquet »

Hello,

I'm interested in visiting Albacete for the first TLP 2020 course next February, but I have a few questions. Is week 1 of 3, a non-flying week? Are there night-flying missions or academic days in week 2?

Many thanks for your help!

Tom

Tom
It's worth adding that the TLP aircraft usually only fly in the afternoons. When I've visited over the last few years they've departed around 1430-1530 and returned about 1.5 hours later.
The based EFs do some flying in the mornings and the Airbus helicopter factory often has some activity

Depends on what runway they are on and if you are doing photos??
The civil/Airbus helicopter end you can see most of tlp ramp but not all as they go around the corner.
Monday tlp launch was 15.40 local and returned by about 17.00
