RSA Fly in at Blois le Breuil France

Post by Jean »

RSA is a French association of home builders and vintage aircraft restorers. They held there summer fly in at Blois le Breuil in the fine Loire Valley.
We took of from EBST under an overcast sky, but we soon topped off in the sun, and the rest of the day was very sunny (and bumpy !). the flight is displayed in the REPORTS page.
We could appreciate many nice constructions, I especially liked the "Gaz'Aile 2", a wooden construction with a diesel Peugeot engine

I probably will build such an aircraft if AVGAS 'prices keep climbing (€2.60/L at my home base).
On the way back home we made a tour over some "Châteaux de la Loire". We visited Chaumont, Chenonceau, Cheverny and Chambord.

My copilot, a Cardinal owner and pilot took some nice pictures that he authorized me to post here. I will upload them in the Gallery page
