I would say no. Not a single word about that in the VAC or NOTAM.
Sorry. Only VFR night is restricted.
Thanks Aviathor, yes I just saw that too.
It also looks like cash is accepted for fuel but I won’t take any chances just in case

The thing is that you need to find someone willing to do the transaction. If they are all busy flying or launching gliders, or out for lunch, do not count on it. And they will be very crossed if you “demand” fuel. This is most probably a service they offer benevolently. I know of an aerodrome where they told me in no uncertain terms that they stopped advertising fuel on the VAC because they were too many pilots turning up demanding to be served in a hurry.
So don’t count on fuel being available, and plan to have enough to go somewhere where you are assured to get fuel.
Good advice; thanks!
Nice little field.
If you are into champagne, you can call the nearby champagne house Dhondt-Grellet up front and they will pick you up for tasting or to deliver the bottles at your airplane.
The owner is a pilot himself.

Great post, Niner_Mike. Sadly I missed this before I flew, but I will make a note of Dhont-Grellet for a future visit!
Thanks to all for the helpful tips. The trip to Epernay was lovely – huge grass strips (reminded me of White Waltham) and super-friendly service. It’s definitely ‘ouvert a la CAP’ and I even paid cash for fuel with the airfield’s Total card. They couldn’t have been more hospitable. They also serve a great Leffe on tap
Will definitely return.
