Main takeoff place :


"East Start" 1420m ASL is facing east - northeast towards Pelagonia Valley. It is several minutes drive from the town and an asphalt road goes almost through the launch. When you take the paraglider out from the car, it is already on the place where it should be open. Lazy pilots will love this launch.

"East Start" is a grassy shallow slope bordered by big trees from south, which offers thick shadows in sunny days. Home thermals are on the left or on the right side from the takeoff. Sometimes straight ahead!


"East Start" offers all kind of different cross-country flights. Usual flights are out-and-return to town Prilep to east, all kind of triangles and zigzags in the valley or over the ridge or distance flights to south up to the Greek border. Coming back from south is quite difficult because in "normal" summer afternoon light north wind is blowing trough the valley. A good road connection helps coming back!


Secondary takeoff place "West Start" (1440m ASL) facing west - southwest is on 500 meters from "East Start", cars, again, can be driven right up to the launch.

The same cross-country flights can be done from here. Landing fields under this launch are smaller than on the other side of mountain where there are very big fields, mostly grassy. This launch is also used for beginners so landings should suit competition pilots too!
