Flying site

El Yelmo is located in the heart of the Sierra de Segura, framed within the Natural Park including Sierras de Cazorla, Segura and Las Villas, in the northeastern part of Jaen. This is a mountainous part of Andalusia province famous for its olives.
The two nearby towns are Segura de la Sierra and Cortijos Nuevos. The latter is also the site of famous air sports festival FIA El Yelmo.
The best days for distance flights are in spring and autumn, with good thermal contrasts and weather activity that ensures good roofs , often above 3000m beating 4,000 times . Summer is also good for distance, but in the middle of the day thermal activity is very strong .

Classic route for El Yelmo is going the north-east , outside of the Sierra crossing mountains and limestone quarries . It is also possible to make good triangles in the valley.

The sun shines since morning but the thermal start working first over the stone, which is before the take off to the right. In the evenings the entire slope works. During warm weather, with light winds from the east, south or north, the slope usually wins. With moderate winds from north take off is something like lee side.

In late summer flights are a delight, we reward El Yelmo strong midday heat with a soft thermal activity, remain reasonably smooth ceilings with large ancestries hour flight ahead. Late refunds are good in the valley, generally runs from the 20/21 h after landing or overfly Cortijos Nuevos and usually last until nightfall.

Take off – 1809 ASL - 38 ° 15'14 .21 " N / 2 ° 39'30 .71 " W (38.253979,38.253979)
Exposure W-E
Launch ground: Spacious and clean , not a problem . Just be careful of strong winds, as there are antennas behind.
Take off Levante: Use more than the take off itself, the race in the left turn . Turbulent at the beginning but with good potential for cross flight.
Landings:
West - the "official" is next to the football field Villas New seen perfectly from the off . For those who are slightly short Ojuelillo is the landing to the right of the second village that can be seen in the direction of flight .
In front of take off - the landing is a clearing among pine that one can see right before takeoff, but you should not go directly to it, but open to the right, because in that area there are important sinks .
Access: From Cortijos Nuevos and at the roundabout take the Ojuelo address , and pass two villages straight . Ascend the mountain by a paved forest road in good condition. Find a marked crossing take a left and in five minutes you're on top . You will pass the take off and if you continue to the West .
Difficulties : There is a power electric line on the right, no problem but should be taken into account when doing low-level slope .

From Madrid the best way is to take the motorway A- 4 to Andalucía Manzanares (Ciudad Real), where you take the CM- 3127 to La Solana and then following by Villanueva de los Infantes and Albadalejo to the N -322 ( coming in genve forwarding). At the height of the bridge Genave we diverted to the Puerta de Segura (A -317 ) and once past the village follow direction Hornos de Segura, Cortijos Nuevos.

There are several possibilities from Jaén. The easiest is to take the A- 316 to Úbeda and continue along the N -322 to Albacete to reach the bridge and take Genave road to Puerta de Segura (A -317 ) and then to Hornos de Segura, Cortijos Nuevos. Another possibility is to get the N -322 until it joins the A- 6301 address Beas de Segura and continue along this road until Cortijos Nuevos. A third possibility is to get the N -322 to Villanueva del Arzobispo and take the A- 6202 to the then stride to link with the A- 319 and A-317 Cortijos Nuevos direction.

From Seville take the A -4 towards Córdoba until we reach that city and follow direction Andujar, then taking the exit Bailen / Linares and linking to the N -322 . We will then address Úbeda / Albacete to reach the bridge and take Genave road to Puerta de Segura (A -317 ) and then to Hornos de Segura, Cortijos Nuevos.

From Albacete just have to take the N -322 to the bridge and take Genave road to Puerta de Segura (A -317 ) and then to Orcera .

From Valencia and Murcia can choose several options. You can take direction Albacete , connecting there with the N -322 (the most comfortable option ) . You can take the A- 330 to Puebla de Don Fabrique, then joining the A - 317 to Santiago de la Espada and following the secondary network to Segura de la Sierra or prior to turning off Hornos de Segura and Cortijos Nuevos. We can also go to Elche Siles o Toba and then follow the secondary network through the mountains to Segura de la Sierra.
