Join us this Sunday as we ride to respect and honor our flying heroes in the Rayak Airbase. We will have the privilege to have a private guided tour and look at the grounded aircraft.

Did you know that?

  1. Rayak Airbase was constructed and used by the Germans in World War I
  2. Rayak Airbase was visited by General De Gaulle.
  3. Rayak Airbase was considered to be the “jewel” of the Airbases and the center of attraction of all other military units in the region. It had many entertainment facilities, luxuries, flowering gardens, and central heating, which at that time were not found in military sites elsewhere in the region.

Please note that ONLY riders with Lebanese nationality will be allowed entrance to the airbase.
