The place is on of our best spot for cross-country flying in Hungary.
The tasks flown here are usually include flatland as well as "mountain" flying.
Thermal conditions are moderate to medium strong thermals, in average conditions 2-4 m/s. Cloudbase is usually about 2000 m.
The most favorable condition is NW-W wind, and usual flying routes are going towards E-S (also the best in terms of easy retrieval).
Here is a link to check out routes of some of the best flights from here: XContext
Nagy-Eged has been the official site for the Hungarian League for many years
