We flew into Le Touquet very short notice from Gt Oakley (Nr Harwich), Skydemon made filing the flight plans and GAR very easy.
Worked London info' to activate flight plan and stayed with them till mid channel, over to Lille and then Le Touquet approach after having a listen to the ATIS (good speed and understandable). Le T asked us to call left base, not much traffic about although it was the weekend. Parked up "anywhere".
No one in Customs so the Aeroclub looked after that, rented two bikes (12E each for a half day each, I felt that expensive as a taxi would have cost that each way, but it was a lovely day for a ride, and they were nice bikes).
Had a couple of buckets of Moules and Frites, a little walk around and cycled back.
Whilst we were away the aeroclub refueled 25L each side at 1.5E/L. Landing only 15E.
The ATC and club were very helpful, and I would recommend Le T' as an excellent stop to refuel plane and soul.
I will be back soon!
