You can get to Międzybrodzie Żywieckie via road K947 Kęty-Żywiec. There are also the buses from Żywiec and Bielsko going by this road.
You may too choose a vivid road from Bielsko through Straconka mountain pass.
The location of Żar is described by the followinf coordinates: 19°14'E and 49°46'N
There is a grass runway with the lenght of about 650 meters, inclined by the angle of 5° in the lower part and 12° above the hangars.
The approach and landing must always be made against ( up ) to the slope , heading 50° and take-off is made other way.
Plane pilots are advised to land "with some throttle power".
Sailplanes , before the final idle glide , should be flown with a speed around 10% higher then the usual planned final speed.
With calm and gentle winds , sailplanes should descend to 100-150 metres and touch down slightly below the concrete arrow - right of it, of course.
With strong S or SW winds, to avoid wind shear and turbulence behind Magurka mountain , the approach should be made from above Żar, making a 180° turn.
Aircraft coming from the North should be make a final leg turn for landing. From the South, landing should be planned as "long straight approach".
With a little turbulence you make perform a tight circuit pattern over the airfield.
On missed approach , the go-round is made by turning left to the lake.
The manouver may be done safely only from above the lower part of the airfield, but even quite high approach is relatively safe since the upper step part of the airfield will effectively shorten the breaking distance.
