Landed there as it is just across the fence of the ITER research facility. General impression: busy, windy & French. There are hundreds of sailplanes, several clubs, many hangars, three runways (depends on how you count them). People are very friendly & helpful, but do not expect too much English there. They understand English on the radio but do not reply (neither in English nor in French), so you should look out and behave. No landing fee, no complications, but also no taxi phone numbers, no easy transportation service from the airport to the nearby Manosque. Will come back.
I don't see any aircraft at this "airport". Or marked runways, grass or tarmac for that matter.
Marseille is the airport where Air France 8969 hijacking ended....
A mandatory training procedure was put in place at Cannes ( LFMD). Feb_2010
Please visit the website http://www.cannes.aeroport.fr/index.html and register.
Cannes is very noise sensitive and you might be checked after landing if you have done the briefing!
I've added the link.
