Good as ever as a customs port for lesser fields inland. I paid EUR 30.04 landing fees for an SR22. Did an ILS and was vactored a bit round the houses.

Very good airport, not too busy, with good access to Deauville and Honfleur. See full report on http://www.patrickflightreports.blogspot.com

Visited Deauville several times this year. Helpful, friendly and efficient ATC and other airfield staff, an enormous runway in perfect condition and a good restaurant. Landing fee was €25 with parking at €20 per night. There seemed to be a €10 discount off the landing fee when we parked there overnight. The flight planning computer was not working on any of our visits, so we had to file plans by telephone and it took a while to get through to Lille to do this. For now, we suggest filing in the UK for onward journeys if you can. The French OLIVIA system is easy and reliable. On one occasion a plan filed on AFPEX was not transmitted to the French, leading to a frustrating delay. We paid for fuel with a MasterCard without any difficulty.

I flew there in August 2006. I agree that this is a good place to visit, particularly as a first French airport. (It was my first; and at the time of writing, my only so far.)

Flew in from Alderney during a fly-out from Shoreham. Deauville were happy for us to route along the Normandy coast to check out the D-Day landing sites. (Great views of the Mulberry Harbours, even those that are submerged now. Cliff-top cemeteries provide a poignant reminder of what happened there...)

From this direction (west) at least, the airfield was tricky to spot until we were very near, as it's surrounded by pine forest. Thankfully our GPS helped a lot.

We were marshalled in to park on the south side of the main apron.

Staff at the reporting point very friendly. As at many large airfields, we were asked to pay by fuel card (eg AirBP). Fortunately one of our party had one. Maybe booking fuel in advance would get round this? Worth checking before you set off anyway.

I have visited this airport many times, it has a big long runway and a small grass run way to the west of the hard runway. the resturant in the airport is good with a plenty full supply of beer and wine and food.

I have stopped off to clear customs on route to else where and also as a final destination. Like all large french airports english is spoken by ATC but not by the french pilots as a rule, but some times they will.

Once landing you are escorted to the GA parking by the follow me van. but if you want fuel ask it is got from the main apron. Pay your fees fuel landing and customs in the terminal. these days a pilots licence and passport is a good idea.

The normal french flight planning and pilots briefing unit is there too.

If you are using as your final destination a trip to Honflour is worth it but watch the taxi as 30 euro each way. the country side of this part of Normandy is very much like West Wales. The beaches near by are nice but the water of the channel a bit cold even in the summer.

A good first french airport as right on the coast. and English spoken. A nice area for camping cycling and B&B etc,
