Acrolac (also a staion of the World Aerobatics Tour) started in 2002 and till 2004, and it took place at Lac d'Aiguebelette, close to Chambéry (France).
However Lac d'Aiguebelette was not the perfect spot for an aerobatics competition and many times the competitors doesn’t have enough altitude above the lake to finish their programs. In 2005 the organizers decided to move the competition to the nearby Lac du Borget. At Mont du Chat they opened a new take off place with a ramp which faces to the east and it usually allows the pilots to start till midday or early afternoon. If the conditions are not good at the take-off, pilots gets in the air from the beach by boat towing.
This competition is a station of the World Aerobatics Tour (WAT).
