The lack of vehicle access to the beach is this site’s only irritation. To get to Karaburun leave the European side of Istanbul, take the O-2 ring road then the North Exit 2. Pass through the nondescript city of Kemerburgaz after which the road becomes a rough track through numerous villages.

Sile is still located on the black sea but is the other side of the Bosphorus. It’s a delightfully pretty place to paraglide. Essentially a lush meadow that sweeps up into a bushy needle, the 35m elevation over the ocean offers plenty for the acro pilot.

Infinity tumbles and helicopters are favourite moves here, but newbies may be sent spiral diving by off-season lightning storms. If the breakfast from your Istanbul hotel has been used up and you get peckish before or after you fly, a modest restaurant serving hearty local dishes is located near the launch area.

Aydos Tepe
As one of the the closest launches to the city Aydos Tepe needed to be included in this guide to paragliding in Istanbul. Located to the east of the city it’s 473m altitude provides great views at the launch site. You can fly here if the winds are SW, W or NW.

Catalca Elbasan
Çatalca is another inland launch, and is the closest paragliding on the European side of Istanbul. The take off is a ridge of hills with an elevation of over 100m.

This is a good spot in both NE and SW winds and is worth checking out if the wind is too unstable at the Black Sea launches. It is located quite near Ataturk Airport so some caution is required although local pilots have been known to reach altitudes of 1500m.

Silivri Falezler
On the Sea of Marmara located to the west of Istanbul is Silivri Falezler. It’s a relatively flat launch that is suitable for P5 pilots and up. Typically it is a twisted launch and you can fly if the wind is SE, S or SW. It is a popular launch for paramotoring.
