Flying site

Kobala is a famous flying site in Soca river valley in Slovenia. With the landing place in Tolmin it is intended for flying hang gliders and paragliders, for sport flying, competitions, events and training hang glider and paraglider pilots. Kobala ia a popular paragliding and hang gliding take-off, as well as an excellent starting point for long cross-country flights on the southern crest of the Julian Alps and a well-known competition site. The best conditions for long cross-country flights are with a very weak general N or E wind. However, the western wind, more suitable for local flying, will normally predominate. Allowed airspace up to 2900 m AMSL.

Kobala take-off 1080 m ASL, N46° 10.86, E13° 46.76.
Suitable wind direction: E, SE, SW, W.
A very large ,nicely maintained meadow on the pointed top of the forest-covered Kobala hill. Two take-off directions are possible depending on the direction of the wind. It is located above the town of Tolmin offers good conditions to launch in a wide range of winds, from ENE to WNW. Although not too big, on a flying day gentle breeze allows many pilots to launch quick without any problems. Access 4 km by car, right to the take-off area.

Landing: official Kobala landing is 2 km after the city of Tolmin on the road going to Kobarid, rigth side of the road along a dirt road, 500m from main road. good reference point is the helipad, there're two windsocks on this field. the emergency landing field is in front of Tolmin, where the road splits like figure V.
