Challenging Airports Annecy - France (LFLP)

Tucked away in the eastern corner of France, the city of Annecy is on the doorstep of the high Alps to the east, with the gorgeous namesake Lake Annecy to the southeast.
Pilots should consider contaminated runway factors when determining take-off and landing performance on Annecy’s short runway.

With obvious tourism attractions of historical sites, alpine resorts and lake activities, the city itself has a population of around 50,000 residents but when adding in nearby communities and urban areas, the regional population is more near a quarter of a million inhabitants. Air transportation is provided through the inclusively titled Annecy – Haute-Savoie – Mont Blanc Airport. You get the feeling that if you could spy the lights of the Eiffel Tower from the airfield they might throw Paris into the title!
