Flying in the Dolomites

If you are considering flying in the Dolomites now or in the future, please read this and digest:

TVHGC received the following from Rodolfo Saccani of the FIVL:

Hi Everybody.

We keep having serious problems in the Dolomites (expecially in Canazei – Col Rodella – Pordoi – Marmolada).

The Dolomites area is again at risk of being closed to free flight.
