Aeroclub Nitra

Aeroclub Nitra is a society of people joined together by their common hobby - flying. The club is situated at a sport airport in Nitra where it allowes all interested people to meet and train themselves in their hobby: motor flying, gliding or parachuting.

Powered flying

A powered flying has a long tradition in our aero club. The club has available 5 single engine planes and 1 multi engine plane.

Directly at the airport there is also a producer of an ultralight planes Eurofox - Aeropro company and Aero Slovakia company. Therefore you can also see the Eurofox and "Čmeliak" aicrafts too.


Glider pilots are the largest department of aeroclub. You can see them above Nitra mainly during the hot summer weekends. Gliders get airborn by an aero-tow connected to a "tow plane". Immediatelly after a successful launch pilots need to continually look for rising hot-air themals to get into greater heights. More experienced pilots usually decide to fly cross-country flights around the Slovakian airspace. Many times they can reach the High Tatra area and come back to Nitra airport without the help of an engine.

Tha best glider pilots are regularly competing at different gliding contests organized all around Slovakia (Pribina Cup competition organized every year in Nitra) or abroad.


Our departmend of the aeroclub offers you an incredible opportunity to try a solo jump or tandem jump with a professional instructor out of Cessna 182. Over the years we have trained thousands of studends and some succesful parachutes. Our instructors may show you the beauties of this sport. There are two terms every year planed for tandem jumping, one in may, one in september. Our members try to use every nice weekend for skydiving from L-60 Brigadyr and you might see us obove your heads falling out of the sky :).
