Road access


To access the Pipistrel d.o.o. Ajdovščina production hall and airfield:
there are several possibilities:

If you arrive from the eastern part (mainland):
The fastest way via motorway: take the motorway (A 1) Ljubljana - Koper and take the exit - izhod Nanos, direction Nova Gorica (H4). The highway begins to descent into the Vipava valley. After passing Vipava, take exit Ajdovscina.


The shorter but slower, more picturesque way: also take the motorway Ljubljana - Koper but leave it already at the exit - izhod Logatec and head for Idrija. You will enjoy the landscape surrounded with forests and fields all the way to Ajdovscina. When arriving to Godovic, make a left turn towards Crni Vrh (direction Nova Gorica). After passing the village of Col, there are less than 10 kms to Ajdovscina. This way is more than 10 kms shorter than the one mentioned above, but takes more time because of the curvy roads.

If you arrive from the west (Italy), you take the motorway A4 from Venezia or Udine, direction Trieste, exit - uscita Villesse. After approximately 12 kms you arrive to border crossing between Italy and Slovenia called St.Andrea - Vrtojba. Follow the motorway eastbound and leave it in Ajdovscina (3rd exit). The airport is located on the west part of the town.

Once you exit the motorway, you will see a crossroads with the traffic lights. In the crossroads, go STRAIGHT on. After about 300 meters, you will arrive to a roundabout. Take THIRD exit (go left).
Then stay on the main road, after about 600 m you will see Pipistrel on your right, slightly removed from the main road.

Here are some maps to help you:
