Our company, Airborne Paragliding lined up the most experienced and excellent pilots actively flying in the Babadağ paragliding area. It is recognized as unquestionably the best takeoff point in the world. We believe and guarantee you will not forget this half-hourly special activity all through your life. Our air-conditioned deluxe car picks you up from our office in Ölüdeniz and makes a 30-minute comfortable trip to the takeoff area. After arrival at the mountain’s summit, our pilots choose a takeoff area among 1700m, 1800m and 1960m points according to wind conditions.
After reaching the takeoff area, you have some time for a break and take pictures. After that, your pilot is introduced to you and he/she makes you ready for flight, gives you a short instruction, and brings you to the point to take off he/she has secured. After walking and running several steps, even you cannot realize when you have left the ground. Soon after the takeoff, lean back and open your arms to enjoy Ölüdeniz’s splendid scenery and perfectly clean air to your heart’s content. Now you are completely free as a bird. You’re feeling as light as a bird. While you are in the sky, your pilot captures your special moments with his/her camera equipment in order to make them permanent. Those images and video clips are shown after your flight and sold upon your request.
Also, during your flight, your pilot gives you a general explanation about Ölüdeniz’s surroundings as well as the flight information. If you wish to experience extra thrills and spills, you’re exactly in the right situation. Upon your request, your pilot can perform some acrobatic actions and gives you feelings you have never had and life-long memories. Those actions are performed by expert pilots and there’s nothing to hesitate to try. After your half-hour flight, you start being ready to land in Ölüdeniz. What you need to do for landing is just to stand up and take some steps. That’s all. You land just as a bird does.
In conclusion, Paragliding has almost no risk when performed with the right equipment and an expert. Moreover, it’s at the head of the safest air vehicles in the world. Now let’s fly!
