A Weekend in Le Touquet Paris Plage
21st - 22nd July 2018
Le Touquet is the most elegant holiday destination in Northern France. Known as Paris Plage (Paris Beech) often described as the Monaco of the North, it is the playground of rich and famous Parisians including the President of France, Emmanuel Macron, who was apparently in town on the weekend of the Take Flight visit which meant an armed guard at our main accommodation. Hotels were in short supply with the town and surrounding areas 100% fully booked which meant a few member cancellations due to the lack of somewhere to stay!
Four aircraft - Two Piper PA-28s, One Cessna 172 and One PA-32 made the trip across the channel to the friendly airport Le Touquet Cote d'Opale (LFAT), where we enjoyed a weekend of the usual routine of food and drink in good company, mixed in with some chilling on the beach, people watching in town and a little bit of exercise on push bikes.
