Calling Fournier pilots...
Posted Feb 27, 2007 - 12:00 AM

AWE Announcements
The Fournier Club is 20 years old and held its anniversary meeting at Gap in the French Alps.

Fournier aircraft from all over Europe attended.

They were welcomed by Rene Fournier, who opened his first factory at Gap when his company was called Alpavia. The hangar in which all FR3s were manufactured is still there, and was used during the anniversary event.

Mountains rise to 6,000 feet close by, but access to Gap Tallard airfield is relatively easy. Each afternoon there were fly-outs into the Alps, and non-French Fournier pilots who turned up without their aircraft were priority passengers in the two-seat Fournier motor-gliders.

Guests of honour included Rene Fournier himself, Gerard Moss, a Brazilian who flew around the world in his RF10, Mira Slovak, an American who flew the Atlantic in his 39 hp RF4 in 1968, and Michel Tognini, the European Space Agency manager, who has flown on the world's biggest motor glider, the Columbia shuttle.

The International Meeting took place on May 26th, 27th and 28th, 2007.
