Take-off

Gozd

The Gozd take-off is one of the best maintained take-offs in Slovenia. Due to local weather conditions, it is also one of the most volatile take-offs in Slovenia. It is located at an altitude of 926 m and is easily accessible (5 minutes walk from the parking lot). The take-off is very suitable for paragliding training. It enables experienced pilots to sail in thermals for several hours in the near and far surroundings. They record many flights, from 20 to 250 km.

Due to the proximity of the Jože Pučnik International Airport, Ljubljana flying is limited to 300 m above the ground, but to the east, north and west you can fly at an altitude of 2900 m.

When you leave the motorway at the "Kranj zahod" exit, continue driving in the direction of Kokrica ̶ Golnik, then before the village of Senično turn left towards the village of Novake. A wind bag at the landing site will guide and lead you to the parking lot.

There are no power lines or any other disturbing obstacles in the vicinity, so landing on the landing site is quite easy. A small hill above the landing site allows initial training of paraglider pilots.
