Under the Leszno sky

The biggest European airfield of the Polish Aero Club Central Gliding School in Leszno is one of the most convenient places for gliding in the world. Leszno is the only town which has hosted the World Gliding Championships three times (1958, 1968, 2003). Open space on three sides at the 126-hectare grass airfield and the nearby sprawling fields make gliding safe and comfortable. Enthusiasts of flying will find well-qualified staff and excellent equipment here. Other assets of the airfield in Leszno are favourable weather conditions, location making it possible to fly long distances within the borders of Poland and many areas suitable for accidental landings. The airfield also has a hotel and restaurant.
