Turkey Paragliding Flight Flying Centre Club Reviews Tandem Company

The interview with Veske taught me a lot about paragliding in Turkey; however, the prize of the day was to actually watch him in action.

Veske did offer to Tandem paraglide with me but my fear of heights stopped me from saying yes! Instead I jumped in the company van with customers and we drove 20 minutes up winding mountain roads until we reached the takeoff point.

I watched eagerly behind the lens of my camera as the customers were fitted out with their safety gear and given safety briefings. Veske was still relaxed and confident leading to a calming effect on the customers who at this point were looking rather nervous.

One by one, I watched as Veske waited for the right wind speed and then upon his signal, instructed the tandem pilot and customer to start running. A helper pulled them towards the edge to assist the chute in filling up with air.

They then soared into the sky and out of sight behind the mountain.

I was desperate to get back down to the harbor to watch them land and to speak to the customers of their experience. I made it just as the last person was landing. He had unfortunately thrown up upon landing but the other two customers were full of high spirits and a confident sense of achievement. I asked them if they would do it again and the answer was definitely!

About this interview – Many thanks to Bougainville Travel for giving me a behind the scenes look at their travel excursions. If you want to experience paragliding in Turkey, head to the Bougainville Travel office in Kas and speak to professional paragliding pilot Veske, whose motto is

“If you do anything once in life, it should always be to fly”

Have you been paragliding? If so, did you have any concerns about safety?
