Oludeniz SIV


May 10th - 15th

5 Days of SIV training in Oludeniz turkey.

Day 1 – Gear check, ground school, site briefing and 1-2 flights

Days 2-5 – Two to three coached flights per day. Each flight will start with a briefing. In the evening we’ll do an in depth video debrief of all runs.

Required Gear:

  • Paraglider and Harness
  • Reserve Parachute – 2 reserves required
  • Helmet – duh
  • PFD (life jacket) – You can rent these in turkey for around $3 a day if you don’t own one.
  • Radio – Baofeng has $25 dollar radios on amazon that work and then its not a big deal if they go in the water.

Recommended Gear:

  • Puffy Jacket – Although Oludeniz is quite warm the mountain we launch off of is about 6,000 ft tall and occasionally chilly
  • Light Gloves – Paraglider lines can be sharp and you may have to pull on them so gloves help.
  • Low B Wing – Unless you’ve SIVed before a low b wing is going to allow you the most progression.
  • Open Harness – Learning maneuvers is a lot better in an open harness than a pod.

If you have any other questions on what to bring just ask.

The main thing here is the ability to launch and land. I won’t be on launch to coach you so you need to be comfortable launching from a large mountain. Landings are quite easy as you’ll have the entire beach to land on. Other than that just be ready to have fun and level up your paragliding.

Common Questions

No, you will be responsible for paying for your runs. Currently, runs are about $15 each.

You can SIV on any wing but for most students we recommend a low B with an open harness. This will allow for easiest and safest progression.

Two reserves are required. If you don’t own and can’t borrow a second reserve I can loan you one with a front mount
