Thermik und Strecke in Bergen und Flachland. Mehrmaliges FAI1 Wettbewerbsgebiet für Drachen.

The take off site is just 5 minutes drive from the town Krusevo, and is accessed by a tarmac road, and has lots of parking space. At a height of 1400 ASL ,the grassy take off slope, looking over the Pelagonian valley.Take off faces East and so the flying day starts early.The valley floor itself is 600 metres ASL and is encircled by mountains. There is therefore lots of opportunity for closed circle tasks and triangular tasks and the thermals function very well in the valley after midday. Landing is never a problem with large, unfenced and often empty fields everywhere and very friendly local farmers! The valley also has a good network of roads and that makes retrieval easy .​

Flacher Naturstart, teilweise mit Matten ausgelegt. Sehr viel Aufbauplatz. It 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 the South, which offers thick shadows in sunny days. Home thermals are everywhere: on the left, on the right side from the take off and sometimes straight ahead. All kind of different cross-country flights can be made from East start. Usual flights are out-and-return to town Prilep to the East, all kind of triangles and zigzags in the valley or over the ridge or distance flights to the South up to the Greek border. Coming back from the South is quite difficult because in “normal” summer afternoon light north wind is blowing through the valley. A good road connection helps coming back.

Flacher Naturstart It’s a secondary smaller take off place facing west – southwest, it is 500 meters away 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 large fields, mostly grassy. This launch can also be used for beginners so landings should suit competition pilots too!

In the begining of the year there is more moisture and more clouds, but as the year progresses it becomes drier with fewer clouds. Conditions don’t generally change very quickly and it is very predictable, making the flying safe. There are no strong valley winds in the area. Average cloudbase: 2,500-3,000m

Keine Lufträume?

Startzeit gegen 1200, Thermik dann vom Oststart an der Kuppe/Kante Nordöstlich vom Start


Vlcsnap-2020-12-29-12h42m51s564.pngVlcsnap-2020-12-29-12h43m28s629.png With its mix of flatland and mountain terrain Kruševo is a great venue for flying cross country. The area is suitable for all levels of pilot, with wooded hills on the on the west side of the valley creating conditions that aren’t too strong, and rocky ridges on the east side create booming thermals for the experienced XC hounds. The flying arena is a natural bowl, making it great for triangles.

From launch, pilots can easily follow the ridge north or south. Going north you can follow the hills round to the east side of the plains and the town of Prilep, where conditions are often stronger amongst the rocky mountains in this area. There are two launches on this side, accessed by tarmac roads.

For the more adventurous it is possible to leave the immediate area and fly north back towards Skopje. Macedonia is a country of mountains so there are plenty of possible routes.
