Airport

Maribor Airport, which is close to the A1 and right next to the A4 motorway, is easily accessed by road, train or bus. Other cities near the airport are: Ljubljana (120 km), Graz (77 km) and Zagreb (107 km) away. It is also easily accessible by rail from all directions.

In 2005 the instrument landing system ILS CAT I and the distribution transformer station were renovated, and the airport was later served with scheduled flights by Slovenian Spirit, an arm of Styrian Spirit, which offered scheduled flights to Paris and Salzburg.

The airport's new terminal opened in 2012 with a capacity is at least 600,000 pax/year and in 2013 the old old terminal was also renovated. Air traffic control (ATC) is a service provided by ground-based controllers who direct aircraft on the ground and through controlled airspace, and can provide advisory services to aircraft in non-controlled airspace. The primary purpose of ATC worldwide is to prevent collisions, organize and expedite the flow of traffic, and provide information and other support for pilots. air traffic control service provider in Slovenia is the Slovenia Air Navigation Services or SLOVENIA CONTROL, with Single European Sky certification, providing air navigation services that are safe, flexible and of the highest quality in Slovenian airspace. Attaining, guaranteeing and constantly improving the defined safety levels.

The students in that kind of environment proceed much more efficient with their learning progress, and get well adopted to the traffic situation and behaviour in such environment, during all flight modules, becoming competitive, successful and safe pilots.

Airspaces and airports

Training is provided in the heart of EU, with exceptionally dense environment and options for the optimal flight training, from the Alps, to Mediterranean sea. All airports in the vicinity are also used by our flight school for an extended Pilot training. The training location represents ideal environment for the student, as he learns precision visual and instrumental navigation in different types of airspaces and landmarks.

In Slovenia there are three international, major airports. They are equipped with different types of equipment, preparing the student pilot to get familiar with all of these types, that he can meet later in his actual job position as a co-pilot or captain. All the airports have precision (ILS) and non-precision aids (VOR-DME, NDB-Locator, etc.) approach systems available for high quality IR (instrument rating) training.

The majority of Slovenian largest part of the airspace is categorized as Class E, up to 7.500 ft, which means almost free flying for all visual training flights. The students can choose among 15 different airports, where 13 of them are free of charge for all landings and departures. The airports are paved (having asphalt runways) and grass airfields. The students use both of them to learn the differences in the landing techniques.

Announcing the flight is a very easy task - all flight plans are being submitted via the internet min. 30 minutes before the flight and there is no other paperwork or approval required by the state, for unlimited flight training and exercising the training syllabus.
