Now in: All feedback
Grita Rose-Innes, London, England
Flybubble Paragliding: "How would you describe Turkey as a place to visit to other paraglider pilots who might be thinking about going there?"
Grita: "I love it: the Turkish atmosphere, very friendly people, the sea, the landscape and delicious Turkish food."
Flybubble Paragliding: "As a place to fly, how would you describe Oludeniz and Baba Dag to other paraglider pilots?"
Grita: "Excellent. It has probably become a kind of paragliding Mecca for doing SIV."
"Take-off is at around 1700 meters ASL and you arrive above the manoeuvring area at around 1200 meters. Although we flew directly out on a glide towards the sea in order to perform our manoeuvres, other non-SIV pilots seem to soar and thermal near the mountain range. The thermals can be quite punchy."
"The view all round is awesome."
Flybubble Paragliding: "Do you think that you would like to go paragliding in Oludeniz again?"
Grita: "Yes, for doing another SIV and I might stay on for another week of general flying. I would like to go XC under Carlo??
