Characteristics of Fethiye Paragliding and Babadag
Flight Season – Is It Possible To Paraglide In Winter?
Between April and October is considered the summer season, but flights take place throughout the year. In other words, paragliding is done in winter.
Fethiye Region Features in terms of Paragliding
Fethiye Ölüdeniz, where paragliding was done for the first time in Turkey, is also known to the world. It attracts and fascinates thousands of local and foreign tourists with its unique nature, beautiful scenery and sea. The venue also has a suitable environment for outdoor activities. Ölüdeniz is a sophisticated tourism center where you can enjoy your stay for a long time, even if there is a logistics or accommodation problem. Besides the stunning boat tours, Babadag is a preferred hiking and camping site in Fethiye.
There are more than three departure areas in Babadağ. It allows for 1700 meters south departure. The 1800 meters northward takeoff is a bit small and steep. The 1900 meter north-peak takeoff is comfortable enough to start the flight. The 1700 meter south take-off is usually wind-fighted during the day and is therefore the most preferred. This area is large enough to place about 20 wings at a time.
Belcekiz Beach, located on the coast of Ölüdeniz, is a long, wide, very comfortable and safe landing zone.
The weather in summer is sometimes stable and consistent. Sometimes in the morning the north wind blows and the departures take place in the valley. The south take-off faces a 5-20 km/h wind for parts of the day.
Things to Consider, Is Paragliding Dangerous?
Especially at the beginning and end of the seasons, the change of season causes sudden changes in weather conditions and clouds can be in the take-off area. On southbound takeoff, a westerly wind from the west of the mountain until noon can create a false southerly wind and confuse solo or inexperienced pilots. It is in their favor to follow and follow the advice of local and not overly ambitious pilots.
