About us

About us

The beginnings of the company date back to 1988, when Franc Novak started restoring gliders.
In 2000, the company moved to new facilities with the most up-to-date equipment near the motorway and Lesce aerodrome.
The company was renamed into GLIDERSERVICE Novak d.o.o. in 2015, continuing the tradition as a family company under the management of the second generation, a team of 15 and several contractors.

The mission of GLIDERSERVICE Novak d.o.o. is to provide comprehensive glider maintenance services according to the highest quality standards.
