Babadag mountain comes straight out of the sea and tops at 2000m providing a perfect flying site for all wind directions. Light winds and cloudbase at 2500-3500m are normal during the day. The most commonly used and biggest launch stands at 1,700m, where the busses stop first and there are some support facilities. At 1,800m there is another take-off, facing the opposite direction. The 1,900m take-off allows for launch in two different directions. There is also a new 1200m launch place– useful in stronger conditions or when the top gets covered by clouds.
