the Air Plaza exalts the joy of flying. Suspended from 30-metre high towers is a dazzling collection of aircraft, kites, balloons, parachutes, gliders and inflatable sculptures that dominate the beautiful vintage aircraft parked on the runway. The mechanics of the Lysander aircraft can also be admired through its multicoloured frame.

In the neighbouring hangar, you can see old planes and the construction of unusual planes.

In the evening, the landing strip is decorated with beacons and the objects on the towers are illuminated. The aerostat, parked at the end of the runway on a landing platform, symbolises the renaissance of this type of aircraft.
