Airfield Nitra-Janíkovce is our home airport.
We fly only during good weather conditions – safety is the number one priority! Good weather is: only light wind or no wind at all, no rain (we do not want to get wet) and good visibility (no fog, etc.).
We usually fly either in the morning just after sunrise or in the late afternoon before sunset during summer. It is because of so called “thermals”, which appear when the ground heated by the sunlight causes turbulences. It is possible to fly practically all day long in the early spring, during the autumn and winter too.
What to wear for flying?
Cloths should be appropriate for the weather. One has to consider that it is colder in higher altitudes then on the ground. Imagine driving a motorcycle (80-100 km/h) in temperatures 3-5 °C lower than on the ground level.
It is important not to underestimate the necessity of warm clothing, especially in spring and autumn, not to mention in winter. Double pants, thermal undergarments, windproof outwear and warm gloves are important to consider if you want to fully enjoy our flight.
