Tahtali Mountain Paragliding Package Tour Trips Excursions Deals Flying Booking Turkey

We took off for Tahtalı the next morning at 7 am. Although the clouds around the peak had cleared by 16.00 pm the previous day, we could see that they were slowly gathering again. If we were fast enough in reaching the peak, flying could be possible. Strong and cold winds greeted us at the peak. Pal Takats was one with the courage to fly in this weather, quickly taking off from the shady side of the peak. The clouds were gathering even faster and our field of vision covering the shoreline was gradually disappearing. Pal had made all his preparations when climbing up in the cable car and immediately took a start. Two crew members held his small “Acro” parachute (only 17 m2) and off he flew. After a few acrobatic maneuvers, he disappeared in the horizon towards the clearer space of Finike. The wind was gathering even more speed and couple of attempts by other pilots failed. The most important reason for the failed attempts was the normal parachute dimensions of over 20 m2. After a brief discussion, the group was divided into two: Some decided to stay on the mountain and yet some felt that the beach was a better alternative. So there was not going to be any more attempts at a long flight and it was decided that the flights at Beyşehir would be considered to be the finale of XC Turkey contest. As we were returning from our beach excursion, there appeared above in the sky the pilots Mustafa Ulutaş and Chris Arnu, peacefully flowing in air. Apparently, the weather had cleared by 15.00 pm. Surely patience is a virtue and most of the time he who is patient turns out to be right.

The finale of the event was held at 16.00 pm. with the participation of all pilots, officials from Karaman, Beyşehir and Olympos regions at an award ceremony. Winners were presented with their awards at the five star Rixos Hotel at Tekirova. Murat Çakmak, the organizer expressed his appreciation for the participation by the pilots and the generous support to the project by the officials. The overall winner was Trian Gkikopoulos with his 184,2 kilometers of flight, the longest in the contest (total 236,3 kilometers), runner up award was given to Pal Takats with his 141,7 kilometer flight (total 225,8 kilometers) and the third place went to Dmitriy Chernyak with his 104,2 kilometers of flight ( total 217,5 kilometers). The pilots of course were grateful to Murat for his successful organization of XCTurkey and were sincere in their complements about their new and many experiences in Turkey, which they said they will make use of in terms of paragliding activities in the future.
