ASF-Switzerland is happy to announce that, after the first eleven flights of its programme "Les Ailes du Sourire" in 2019, another serie has just taken place in 2020 from and to Lausanne aerodrome, thanks to the ongoing generosity of its partners and sponsors!

Inspiring itself from the French programme "Les Ailes du Sourire" carried out since 1995 by ASF-France, ASF-Switzerland, in partnership with AéroFormation B. Hanhart SA, in Lausanne, and L'Espérance Foundation, in Etoy, co-organises and finances short circular private flights, for the benefit of selected residents (children and adults) from L'Espérance, who never had the chance to board a plane and, still less, to fly. Ground and in-flight safety responsability rests with Aéroformation, certified as a flying school.  Pilots in command are flying instructors only.

The first flights (11 in total) took place in 2019 from Lausanne aerodrome La Blécherette; each serie of 4 flight costs around CHF 1'000.00, excluding ASF-Switzerland's operating costs. During this month of March 2020, no less than four flights have already been operated under the same partnership.

Every single CHF franc counts! ASF-Switzerland is most grateful in advance to anyone wishing to financially support this operation. Let's meet in April for the next 2020 flights (weather permitting)!
