Aero club Split was formed in the year 1927. in Split, where since the very beginning it had its flying activities. During 1930s because of lack of space, it transforms its operations to 30km far Sinj, where it stays until the present day. Aero club Split trough its history was merely based on educating young modelers, gliding pilots, sports pilots of engine jets and parachutes. The longest tradition of Aero Club Split is indeed in educating gliding pilot, whom in the longer development have archived good result. Aero club Split has possibility to educate pilots of gliders by pulling them on planes, or on the winch. Quality of training is made on high professional rank where from year to year we are developing professionally, structurally as well as technically. Our system and educational plan is in accordance with laws of the European Union Why Aero club Split? Theoretical part is held in one of the prettiest towns in the Mediterian. Quality and expertise of professors. Flying top gliders. Top jet for carrying gliders. Possibility of teaching on winch. Spaced and ideal Airport for education. Huge experience of flying instructors. Pleasant and dry climate. Pleasant and friendly environment. Because of the very favorable weather conditions and free airspace primary activity of the club is gliding. Many testify that this is the most beautiful form of flight when the pilot and glider merge in search of heights and distances using winds, mountain slopes and thermal air currents which in our region does not lack, indeed, Split and its surroundings abound Meteorological diversity that benefits all the techniques of aeronautical races .
Such flying or sailing without engine noise and with the sound of the wind, with the birds in the clouds in a beautiful landscape above the lake and the sea, is a challenge and enjoyment provided by gliding. Sailing or flights with gliders last on average for several hours and several hundred kilometers of overflight, which of course depends on the skill and knowledge of the pilot, but a lot about the daily weather conditions and the micro-climate region.
In addition to the pleasure sailing and there are sporting disciplines in competition gliding used for ranking competitors.
A simplified, it is a flyby few points / angle marked on the map where the flight each boat stored in the GPS device, after the landing of processed data and are ranked by time, speed or length of overflight depending on the given discipline is set to Day.
Cro open national gliding Cup is a regional competition that is organized at the airport every year and each year increased the quality and number of competitors. Also sailing camps and weekend visiting sailors from different European countries over a long period of sailing the annual club activities that contribute to the promotion and development of yachting, tourism and this region of the world as an attractive tourist and sports destination.
Who ever experienced or mastered flying boats remained indifferent and again he returns because of the indescribable feeling that gives this sport or in the words of Leonardo da Vinci:
"Once you've felt flight,
you'll go underground eyes on the sky,
where have you been
and where you want to go "
