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.
This is a paragliding SIV (Safety Course) You will have an intense program, flying from high altitude over the water to test your limits and improve your skills at daytime, and have big fun by night. We will be flying from Babadag mountain, 2000m over the sea and landing at the beach. The program consist of performing several simulations of incidents, following the precise indications of the instructor. The manouvres will suit your level and you will progress and try out more extreme situations. All the manouvres are performed over the water, for safety reasons. There will be a boat for rescue, in case you end up throwing your reserve parachute and end up in the water. You'll have a minimum of 10 and maximum15 flights, according to the weather conditions. The safety course is run by a well known local pilot: the best acro pilot in Turkey.
You will be required to take your own personal equipment: glider, harness, helmet, rescue parachute and radio.
Besides this you must ensure you have a valid pilot license and a suitable insurance policy (liability and personal). Speaking and understanding english is mandatory.
Being a tourist resort, there are many clubs along the beach were you can have fun and relax after this intense experience. If you prefer something different you'll have the chance for a more cultural program as there are some nice historical places to visit around the area.
