Event info

After 4 year interrupted by Organizing big comps XSC - Ohrid once more will organize fun and friendly competition in the end of August when the flat is burn by the sun, all fields are harvested and highest cloud-base are expected.

Flying site

Situated at an altitude of 1350m, Krushevo is the highest town in the Balkans, 159 km from the capital Skopje, 55 km from Bitola, 32 km from Prilep, and only 68 km from the Macedonian - Greek crossing border “Medzitlia - Niki”. The Krusevo take-off is located on just a 5 minute drive from the small city of Krusevo, the usual place of residence during the competition. It is easily accessible, as the road is tarmac, and there is also a lot of parking space.

Krushevo take off 1400 ASL (41.340331, 21.256859)
It faces East with a grassy slope and is about 45° steep, while the landing valley beneath is at 600 ASL.
In the summer, the general wind direction is NE, E, SE.

With the valley being encircled by mountains, there are a lot of opportunities for closed-circle, and triangular tasks.
Within the valley, there are a lot of large, unfenced and often empty spaces, so landing is never a problem. It also has a well developed road infrastructure, so the retrieval is easy.

Selection and entry fee

80EUR

Unfortunately there is no way we can use PayPal to receive payments. The only we can use is a Bank Transfer and it comes with high bank fees (probably more than 20EUR to send 80EUR). For that reason we are willing to accept payment on site. All we need from pilots, that are positive to take a part in Krusevo Open 2019, is to send a confirmation e-mail for their participation on the competition at least 10 days before the beginning of the comp so we can be in position to prepare gadgets and t-shirts for them. For the pilots that will come to the comp, without notice for their arrival, there is no guaranties that we can provide gadgets and t-shirt.

Plane

International airports in Skopje and Ohrid connects Macedonia with several major European cities. Close regional airports in Belgrade, Sofia and Thessaloniki can also be used, as they are all within a few hours' drive from Macedonia.

Train

An international train, operating daily, twice a day, connects Ljubljana (Slovenia) and Thessaloniki (Greece) via Macedonia. It stops at Tabanovce (the Macedonia-Serbia border crossing point), Kumanovo, Skopje, Veles, Gradsko, Negotino, DemirKapija, and Gevgelija (Greek border crossing point), as well as a few small villages. From Skopje, Veles and Gradsko there are train connections to Prilep (35 km from Krusevo).

Car

The international highway E-75 runs north-south from Serbia to Greece, bisecting Macedonia. This is the most common route for overland tourists to take for entering Macedonia. There are also good roads connecting the country with Bulgaria to the East and Albania to the West.
Krusevo is on around a 2 hour drive (160 km) from Skopje Airport, via Motorway "Alexander of Macedon"/A1/А1 and A1, or on about 1 h 36 min drive (119.7 km) from Ohrid Airport via E65 and R1305 (note that this path is not a highway).

Rent-a-car
Numerous car-rental companies, run by both Macedonian companies and local representatives of recognized Western companies are available in Macedonia. Among the latter there are Sixth, Avis and Hertz, whereas among the most prominent Macedonian companies one should name Biveks, Ineks, Mn, Ni-Mar Komerc and Putnik-Eurodolar.
Rental car prices in Macedonia generally start from 40-50 euros per day, though for longer periods the rate can be somewhat lower. In order to rent a car, be prepared to present a valid passport and driver's license from your home country.


Driving tips
Driving in Macedonia by car: While roads in Macedonia are generally good, drivers should watch out for falling rock zones in mountainous areas, and dogs, cows and sheep in rural areas. Drivers should also note that in Macedonia it is illegal to talk on a mobile phone while driving, seatbelts are mandatory and headlights have to be on during the day.
