This trip is something what we call ‘extraordinary‘. We will start off our week in our favourite and friendly Slovenia, where we set a base. Depending on the best weather forecast we will start from west in Gemmona (take off 1170 m.a.s.l.) under the Mt. Cuarnan with local landing place at 185 m.a.s.l., Kobaridsky Stol around the highest mountain Krn (2224 m.a.s.l.) and following the rear ridge to magical and unspoiled Sorica. Most of our students achieve very first proper XC flights in theirs flying careers and those familiar with thermalling very often do their first 100 km flights. Slovenia is a very reliable destination with 300 flying days a year. Even, if you are a complete beginner, you will enjoy the hours of airtime boosting your confidence.

Supplementary one day trip £20/person: Speikboden or Greifenburg!

We constantly monitor the weather to make most out of our trip. Once we get the green light from the weather and clients we travel to Speikboden (The Central Dolomites) or the Greifenburg (Tyrol Alps) to experience amazing flying where less experienced pilots can under our guidance achieve first pure 100km FAI triangle.

To Speikboden take off (2450 m.a.s.l) we will get by cable car, followed by a short walk – easy peazy. Take off is possible on south, east and north winds. Landing place is a huge obstacle free meadow, which you will be shown on the briefing. For beginners there is a guarantee of local soaring with incredible views on the Central Dolomites

Greifenburg is also very interesting flying site for serious FAI triangles. Even beginners on this trip massively progress and are surprised by gained hours of airtime. This is an ideal trip for pilots with certain level of confidence, who are bored with flying around the take off and are hungry for XC flying.

On our trips we always work minimally in a team of one chief instructor and a driver, however most of the times you are looked after by three and more instructors to give you the maximum value on your XC day. One is flying in the front of the squadron with high performance wing, searching for the best thermals and route and the second pilot is closing the group looking after the slower ones and pilots flying school wings. If you are unlucky and had to lend, there is always our driver here to pick you up. This is ideal way of flying in a group and maximizes your chance for a good flight. Not like the others we do our best to keep you airborne.

*Accommodation – Stay Connected To The Nature

We know that your life is very busy and sometimes could be very stressful and hectic. That’s why we offer staying in the campsites instead of luxury hotels in the summer. We believe that making a barbeque, fire, having a good beer and chat is a real stress relief. Most of our clients even decide to sleep under the stars. The camps we use have all necessary facilities – showers, toilets, fridge, barbecue and social area.

We can provide you with a tent and self-inflating mat, just give us a shout. All you need to bring is your sleeping bag. Quite often we are asked by pilots to get a keg of Czech beer in our van – no problem. We are here to make you happy. At least for one week of holidays forget about your daily stress and enjoy yourself! Customers wishing to stay in hotel will be dropped off in the evening and picked up in the morning for the flying action :-)

Generally campsites cost 6-10 euros/night and hotels between 15-20 euros/night.
