WHAT WILL GIVE YOU A TOUR

FOR TRAINED PILOTS

For trained pilots, mountains in Slovenia are ideal conditions for improving their thermals skills, route planning, reading terrain and finding triggers.

The relief, as from textbooks, allows you to gain practical route experience, and the abundance of landings forgives mistakes.

FOR EXPERIENCED PILOTS

For experienced pilots, the Julian Alps offers a classic 100 km air high-way route from Slovenia to Italy with a return, as well as ample opportunities for route creativity in the “big mountains”.

The friendly attitude of the local people in case of an unplanned landing on a private territory, the presence of highways in the mountains, public transport flights, numerous hiking trails with signs significantly expand the scope when building routes

Do I have enough paragliding skills to fly in Slovenia?

Slovenia is budget friendly?

Thanks to the experience and knowledge of local aerology, we strive to make all the days of the fly tour as flying as possible. In case of bad weather in our valley, we go to flight starts not only in Slovenia, but also in flying places in the nearby regions of Italy and Croatia. Long distance travel costs are included in the tour price.

FEEDBACKS FROM OUR GUESTS

We went to Yaroslav and Anya for 12 days. This was my first trip to the mountains (experience – the second season of independent flights began). According to my impressions – the place is my personal paradise), for the first time in my life I flew cross-country flights, albeit small 15-18 km, but for me it is huge). 15 km is the route from Kobala to the house), and there is much to fly there almost to infinity). Yaroslav is a very cool instructor, guide and, most importantly, a person. It helps exactly as much as necessary, it will definitely instruct on the terrain and explain what to where and how.Artem Semikov

Yaroslav and Anya, thanks for the incredibly cool 2 weeks, this is a complete delight! 🙂 …

The guys were received and accommodated as a family – attention and sincerity non-stop, felt like an exceptionally important guest for all two weeks. Yaroslav professionally read the briefing on the aerology of the terrain and outlined the promising directions of the routes, supported by radio during the flight. Largely thanks to this information, it was possible to perform two flights of ~ 100 km with landings in Italy and fascinating returns to the base and one 70 km from Italy with landing at home.

Alexander

The trip from June 1-14 was very fruitful. Out of the planned 10 flight days, we flew 9 days.

The weather made it possible to make routes daily. Thermal activity was average all days, with fluxes up to +3 m / s, which made it possible to feel comfortable in the air. Turbulence was observed only for a couple of flying days with a strong East wind. During the trip, we managed to fly over 25 hours or a distance of 450 km. Since the place was new for me, I am satisfied with the performance!

 Andrey Mashak

The magical country of Slovenia … While waiting for a trip to Slovenia, I was anticipating that it would be interesting, but I did not even know how cool it would be. Two weeks of delight and euphoria … Fabulous landscapes, wonderful atmosphere, sincere, different and interesting company …

Yaroslav and Anya, thank you very much! It is difficult to assess in words that what you are doing is magical … Coziness, warmth, care, fun, adventure, friends, these are associations with you that have settled in our hearts forever.

Thanks to Yar and Anya, thanks to fly-art.com.
