Refuelling is possible every day (including Sunday and legal holidays) at the business hours (100 LL and Jet A1).

For nuisance reasons and strong traffic (gliders, microlighting, planes, helicopters), it is imperative to respect scrupulously the landing instructions and the circuit indicated on VAC map on Iser'ULM web site

Attention also with the vertical axis flies installations between 2000 and 5000 feet.
