Cherbourg.
<IMG_0608.JPG>Cherbourg remains the most convenient entry point for many wishing to visit France. Although the tower is manned is it is now "information" only, they are not controllers. There is cover at the weekends but in the form of information only,   Even so the airport remains open during the published hours .
On first contact with Deauville if the Tower is not manned you will be directed to make all calls in French when joining.  Some do, others don't . You should not be put off from landing there.
Luc tells me the problems will be resolved by the end of April.
Note also that French Customs are in attendance EVERY day and you need to carry a passport and aircraft documents must be carried and up to date.
