We are first and foremost a CLUB, and at CVVE Bailleau we do our utmost to ensure that the Club spirit endures.

Nos membres

A passion for flying links all our members, from 15 to over 80, in a spirit of simplicity and sharing. There are the "old-timers" who knew the beginnings of gliding, the administrators, the instructors, the perfo pilots, the aerobatics pilots, the students and the "newbies". Each member has the same rights and duties, no more, no less. We call each other by our first names and do our best to help new members integrate.

Lors de votre inscription, vous disposerez d’un livret d’accueil. Il va vous permettre de « rentrer dans le bain » plus facilement ; il explique le déroulement d’une journée type, il précise certaines règles, il décode le vocabulaire des vélivoles : il est fort utile !


The Bailleau Armenonville airfield is one of the few in France to have been entirely designed and built for the sole purpose of gliding. Located on the territory of the Communauté de Commune du Val de Voise, it is one of a kind!

It's unique in that it's reserved exclusively for glider pilots (although our members, who are airplane pilots, can fly on tugboats for their own pleasure).

⛅ Unique in that its aerology is highly conducive to gliding.

?️ Unique par sa situation géographique qui, en plus d’être une région où les conditions météo sont très favorable, permet de disposer à proximité d’un grand nombre de pôles d’attraction : Paris à 1 heure, Chartres et sa cathédrale à 15 minutes, Maintenon et son château à 10 minutes, plusieurs piscines à proximité du terrain, ainsi que des clubs de Montgolfières, de golf, d’équitation, un bowling, un parc animalier, des musées, des hôtels dont le magnifique Château d’Esclimont.
