Low Flying Area 5, the Netherlands (GLV-V)

Recently I was able to visit GLV-V at the Oirschotse Hei in the Netherlands on two separate occasions. Both times I was lucky to find helicopter practicing there. This area is open to the public, although caution is necessary to keep things safe. Below is a map where you can find a parking spot along the Eindhovensedijk in Oirschot. The red stars represent the locations the helicopters were practicing on these occasions, although any other spot is possible too. Once you get into the field, just follow the noise and you’ll find the choppers. If you’re lucky they repeat their routine several times, so you can reach the spot in time to catch the next go around. If you’re not so lucky…. you can run up and down these dunes forever chasing choppers. Good luck!
