Jeseniky area is situated on the northest side of Moravia, which is a part of Czech Republic. It's core is Hruby Jesenik mountains. Other parts are Kralicky Sneznik massif, Rychleby and Nizky Jesenik mountains. All of them except Nizky Jesenik exceed 1000 meters of elevation. Highest mountain on Moravia and Silesia also belongs to this area - it is Praded with 1492 meters of elevation. Rychleby mountains create natural border with Kladsko, a district of Poland. The northern part of Jeseniky area is almost flat with elevation approx. 300 meters.
The scenery just covers area of Hruby Jesenik and Rychleby mountains. There are two important airfields, especially for gliding - Mikulovice (near Hradec - Nová Ves village) and Šumperk.
Mikulovice airfield has unique location regarding to the ridge on the north side of Jeseniky mountains. Mountains offer early thermals in the spring and summer. Southwest wind, especially during fall and winter, makes so called "long wave" (dlouhá vlna) over the ridge, which makes the fall and winter flying possible. It's the part of the year, when the gliding season on other airfields is already closed many weeks ago.
Šumperk airfield is a gateway to Jeseníky. It has long gliders tradition, it has it's importance also for parachutists and engined-planes. It's ideal place to start journey over and into Jesenicko area.
