Kalkan Sky Activities Flight Tours Paragliding Microlight Paramotor Flying Courses Turkey

I have not tried paragliding from Baba Dağ so am unable to give you a comparision. All I can say is that the team were very professional and we felt very safe (well, as safe as you can given the activity). Our first attempt was aborted because by the time we got to the top of the mountain the pilots (is that the correct term?) decided that it was just a little too windy so we drove the 45 minutes back down to Kas and did it another day when the weather was better. The drive is a little shorter now because a new road has been constructed, but the journey itself is great, lots of views etc.

We used Sky Sports who no longer appear to operate in Kas, but there are at least 2 or 3 other companies. It cost us (in 2004) around £60 or £65, I'm sorry but I do not know current rates. We were airborne for about an hour, I believe that the weather conditons were particularly good, plus the pilots were enjoying themselves. For me it was money well spent.

The views over Kas are fantastic and most of the time the paragliders land right on the harbour.

As for safety, I have no reason to doubt the operators' claims about high standards. I beleive that there are occaisional accidents, but mostly these appear to involve the solo paragliders who perhaps push themselves a little more or will take more of a chance with the weather than the tourist tandem paragliders. We have had some scaremongers on TA about this subject who have claimed that there are high numbers of deaths, particularly off Baba Dağ but in my opinion no evidence was given to support these claims.
