Flying at Palava

Povolené starty v CHKO

Since the Stolova hora Hill is part of the Pálava Protected Landscape Area (PLA), there are certain limitations to flying here.

The PG Pálava citizens association (PGP c.a.) was granted an exception by the Administration of the Pálava Protected Landscape Area allowing us to fly in this area in a period of one year.

To protect our site and the pilots who fly here, flying is allowed only for members of the PGP c.a.

 

Stolova hora Hill is the only permitted flying site for paragliding and hang gliding in the entire Pálava PLA.We strongly ask all pilots to respect this regulation. Please, do not use any other area for take-off or landing.

 

If these rules are not respected flying will be outlawed again.

Thank you for understanding.
