Welcome to Béarn!

International Pau-Uzein Pyrénées airport is located on the town of Uzein, at some kilometers of Pau, 3rd biggest town of south west of France, after Bordeaux and Toulouse.
Airport is a gateway to the entire region, including southern Landes, Gers, Bigorre, Spain and of course Béarn.

Along with Bordeaux and Toulouse, Pau Airport is one of three airports in southwestern France that is equipped with an all-weather landing system.

It is centrally located in a business area with both civil (manufacturing and service) and military activities.

The airpark contains 500 businesses and 4,000 jobs near the airport, including aerospace companies (Exameca, MAP, CGTM, USINECA, SEDEMECA, and future manufacturing plant of l'E-FAN, electric plane made by Airbus aviation, which also performs tests and pilot training aircraft on the platform), logistics companies (SDV Logistique, Dachser France, Partn Air, Henry Johnson Co Ltd), electronics companies (Aquitaine Electronique), and services (La Poste, regional logistics centre, Météo France centre, Customs Services 64, Paf) in the business area.

Pau Airport attracts business customers (70% of passenger traffic) affiliated with major companies in the region (Total, Safran, Euralis, Schlumberger, Lindt, Alstom, EADS, Toray, Socata, etc.), but it also handles customers travelling for leisure.

The runway also accommodates military traffic from the nearby School of Airborne Troops. (ALAT base)
There is a regiment of combat helicopters, the 5th RHC, based to the south of the airport, along with the 4th Special Forces Helicopter Regiment (4th RHFS).
This adds up to 80 Gazelle, Puma, Cougar, and Tiger military helicopters with its maintenance centre.

Do not forget to admire the beautifull view on the Pyrenees in the south of the runway! Good flights everybody!
