The goal for this clinic is to improve your skills in XC by maximizing your time in the air and receiving guidance and feedback from experienced instructors. We will help you analyze your flights and identify areas where you can improve, as well as provide tips and strategies for maximizing your efficiency and minimizing mistakes.
In addition to personal flight analysis, group feedback is very motivating and can help you learn from the experiences of others. Since we have a 3-to-1 guide to pilot ratio, and having 6 pilots in the clinic you’ll benefit a lot from this small group flying experience.
Overall, with a clear goal in mind and a strong focus on improving your skills, this clinic has the potential to be a very rewarding and educational experience for you as a keen XC pilot.
Our ultimate goal as Condor Air Sports is to make you fly your personal best during this clinic!
This clinic is for autonomous pilots who have a solid foundation in the basics of thermal flying. In addition to having a minimum level of qualification, it’s also ideal for pilots who have had XC flying experience before and want to progress in a safe, reliable and guided conditions.
The flying site(s)
We have a lot of great options for XC flying in Turkey! Çameli, as the main XC site in the southwest (just 90 min drive away from Ölüdeniz), offers a wide range of XC routes and is known for its reliable thermals and consistent conditions. All the current national records for free distance, FAI triangle, and flat triangle have been broken in Çameli! This is a testament to the quality of the flying conditions in this area!
Depending on the weather, other nearby sites such as Çökelez, Pamukkale, and Nikfer in the north, Seki and Elmalı in the east, and Babadağ, Akdağ, and Sinekçibel in the south may also offer great flying opportunities. Each of these locations offers unique flying conditions and scenic views, which can make for an exciting and diverse paragliding experience. We keep an eye on weather conditions and decide to get a sense of which sites are best for flying on a given day.
Exploring different flying locations can also help you develop your paragliding skills by exposing you to different types of terrain and weather conditions. This can help you become a more well-rounded and versatile pilot.
Overall, you have an exciting paragliding adventure ahead of you with plenty of beautiful spots to choose from!
Condor Air Sports Paragliding School has a in-house hostel with bunk beds for up to 10 people, and that it’s offered free of charge for pilots attending the clinic. This is a great option for pilots who are looking to keep their costs down and who want to be close to the action.
For pilots who are looking for a more luxurious and comfortable stay, the Stone Lodges Hotel, which is located right next to the school, offers private rooms that are available for those who want more privacy or who are looking to share a room with a friend or partner.
