This page is intended to draw commercial and private pilots’ attention to the aeronautical context and main threats related to an aerodrome. They have been identified in a collaborative way by the main organisations operating, to, on the platform (airlines, airport operator, air navigation service provider, aero clubs, Meteo France…) by comparing items from their respective safety management systems (SMS). Such information has been validated by the members of the Local Safety Teams (LST) of the aerodromes.

Coverage area of radio altimeter is 300 m upstream of threshold 12. Terrain profile upstream of this coverage area is irregular (step profile). Variation of indications provided by radio altimeter between roughly 230 ft (RA) and 100 ft (RA) is very fast, due to terrain profile upstream the threshold.
- Longitudinal slope of 0.97% (greater than the maximum value of 0.80%) on the first quarter of the RWY ;
- No PAPI.
Common crosswind on RWY 12/30. Strong upper winds routinely reported.
By night or in poor visibility conditions, after landing on RWY 12, possible confusion between the turn pad marks/lighting threshold 30 (first yellow line turning to the left after backtracking RWY 30, green lighting, turn pad marking on the ground) and the Exit R2 (second yellow painted lead-off line, no centerline lighting, R2 marking on the ground).
After landing RWY 12 and vacating via R2 at the end of the RWY, maintain on TWY R at holding point 30/12 before RWY 12/30 until further clearance. The holding point is not perpendicular to the RWY (blind spot : reduced visibility on traffic using RWY 30).
The holding point is at a perpendicular distance of 150 m from the axis of RWY 12/30, but 300 m longitudinally
IFR CLEARANCE / TAXI
In absence of marshaller :
- Last turn to the aircraft stand prohibited,
- Autonomous departure subject to authorization.
