Directions to Avignonesi
Exit the Bettolle – Perugia Autostradale (Superstrada) at the Cortona exit and head south towards Montepulciano on road SP32. Carry on straight for 4-5 km and pass straight through a junction towards Valiano. About 300 m after the junction there will be a sign left for Avignonesi (it’s a dirt road). The first buildings you see on the right, after about 400 m, is Avignonesi. Please note that the crew might not be on site until 15 minutes before the scheduled meeting time so if you are early, don’t panic, you are probably at the correct location waiting for us to arrive. You should consider using a taxi on the day of your flight since the excellent wine is plentiful at the brunch.
Backup Locations – What Are They?
Sometimes flights are moved from one of our stunning locations to another, equally beautiful launch site.
This happens when the forecast, such as unsuitable wind direction or other weather conditions, means it is not flyable at the original location but it is from another.
Being able to move the flights to a back-up site further increases the chance of it going ahead.
We might also on rare occasions move flights for an operational reason, such as the original launch site becoming unavailable on that day.
How Will I Find Out If My Flight Is Being Moved?
You will be informed by your pilot via the flight status page on the website at the time your flight is confirmed as going ahead if there has been any change to the original location.
If this happens, you will need to attend the flight at the back-up launch site or your flight vouchers will become invalid.
Please ensure you have all maps, directions and transport arrangements ready to get to any of our potential launch sites on the morning of your flight.
