Lijak is one of the most favorite take-off places in Slovenia.
Its special location offers an extraordinary number of flying days throughout the year. There are very good weather conditions for flight also during winter time; even when in the nearby Vipava valley blows strong bora, Lijak is quite well protected. Also, in the winter time the cloud base can be higher than in summer. This geat take-off place is situated above a karstic spring of the brook Lijak, on a sharp edge of the Trnovo landscape rising over the characteristic, funnel-shaped steep slope – hence the name; Lijak is a Slovenian word for funnel.
Landing : PG / HG ASL : 65m

LZ is a flat area near Šmihel a little village at the 'foot' of Lijak flying area. At LZ is a little pizzeria called PIZZA & GRILL LIJAK where you can find all infos about flying, transport to TO, accomodation....

If going there by bus (from Ajdovscina or Nova Goricia) ask to get off at 'Smihel' (pronounced like 'Schmihehl'), the bus stop is right at the LZ
