Markai is the main takeoff in Jalalabad. Very good takeoff with grassy flat top and progressively tilted runway. Very big – More than 10 wings can be sprad and prepared here for the launch simultaneosely.
Just in front and little bit on the right side you will meet the chain of home thermals – on by one. So if the first thermal is not in it’s phase, you just go further to the next home thermal.
If you will fly over the Markai ridge to the NorthEast, which is easy, you can jump to the main ridge of Fergana Range – very high and beautiful.
If you want to fly in the smooth flatland thermals, you just go to th West to the valley. But the flats start to work on the late afternoon only.
All the valley is just big grass field, so you can easily land wherever you want. You can make really big XC flights here.
