Come with us to Red Bull Air Race in Croatia!

Red Bull Air Race in Croatia is coming! Flying Academy can not miss it, join us! We are organizing a trip to Croatia for the Red Bull 2015! Do you want to see this race full of adrenaline? Join us, book your aircraft and fly with us to Croatia on 30 - 31th of May!

Get more information about the race HERE. For more information about the aircraft booking contact US

The challenging race track in Rovinj in Croatia will be set up along the north beach close to the old town and will feature tight turns with plenty of high Gs expected.

The Adriatic Coast is subject to the Bura wind, a gusty and tempestuous phenomenon that has the potential to wreak havoc – if the winds show up on race day, then race conditions could be marginal.

Flying Academy in the Flyer magazine UK

Flyer magazine in the UK is launching on March 26th it's yearly supplement "Learn to fly 2015-2016". We are happy that Flying Academy is the only European school featured in the Learn to Fly Abroad section!
 
Radim Olbrecht - Head of Training Flying Academy: "I'm proud that our continuos efforts to increase the quality of training while keeping the costs to a minimum are recognised internationally. It's a success for us that we are the only flight school in Europe being featured in the magazine and we will take this as a challenge to become better and better every day. 
 
Signs of our progress are shown to us daily and that's why students from 46 countries have decided to do or continue their training in Flying Academy at costs which are 60% cheaper than in the Western European countries, but at the same level of preparation and obtaining the same Pilot License. For this reason, we are confident to invite anybody that considers to become an Airline Pilot to come and visit us and we will reimburse the cost of the visit when the training will be started".

Why is the weather bomb so dangerous?

Difficult to predict and easy to confuse with other weather hazards, Explosive Cyclogenesis or, as often called, “The weather bomb”, constitutes one of the most interesting meteorological phenomena. Its basic scientific principle is a rapid fall in the central pressure of a depression. Due to the collision between warm Sub-tropical air and cold Artic air a massive release of energy that is converted into motion (wind) and temperature contrast is created which drives the jet stream. The bigger the contrast the faster the jet stream, creating a vacuum which causes a pressure drop and pressure gradient to increase, therefore wind to gain speed and storms to form.

In order to meet the criteria of an Explosive Cyclogenesis the pressure drop must be at least 24 mb in 24 hours. Scientific Meteorological researches show the upper trend of weather bombs in the Northern Hemisphere over the last years. Most of them agree that there is another dangerous situation added to the increasing trend which is associated with a rapid intercontinental air pollution transport.
