Tizi-N-Test is a site in the high Atlas and it works like an Alpine site on the dryer side of the Atlas, facing Taroudant.

This site works with valley breeze and thermals. It can be turbulent and difficult to fly but the landing is the most technical aspect for this site.

The parking is done at the restaurant Belle-Vue. The restaurant owner will welcome you if you consume a tea or some food on that day. The takeoff is directly below the road and the restaurant. The landing is one of the flat field along the road (please see the map above). This valley is V shaped and very steep making it very difficult to land anywhere else.

To fly this site, you definitely the CAA flight authorisation as the Gendarme will come and greet you on your landing.
