Alay Cross Country

If you love to open new possibilities for this cool combination, if you prefer new areas for making flight route discovers instead of good-known places, if you are real pilot-explorer who don’t feel anxious about making ascents, if you belong to those kinds of travelers who hunger for pure emotions and mysterious lands – then this program for you!
