Airspace in Slovenia
This article is not ment for popularizing Slovenia and flying in this country, but it is an information for all who fly and intend to fly here. In last years we notice a lot of foreign pilots especially from Eastern Europe. Slovenia is a small coutry in middle Europe. It has 20.273 km2 surface, 2.001.114 residents, and three airports with its own air space where flying is not allowed. Why mentioning airports? Because some people saw pilots which flew in this restricted area. Maybe they flew accidentally there because they didn't know for this restricted area. Penalties for that kind of violation are very high. For this reason we composed this warning for pilots from all over the world. Anyway, we don't want you driving away. On the contrary: you are very welcome in Slovenia because of very good flying conditions. For more informations about flying sites and restricted area please check this page. If you have any questions, send us an e-mail. Welcome in our country of thermic and exciting flying!
