Happy family – happy pilots!

Alanya is THE perfect spot to combine a family holiday with great flying. No need to say that Alanya as one of the most visited tourism destination of Turkey offers everythiing you are looking for to make your family happy. On top you will find a good flying area with very realiabe flying condiions and decend potential of soaring based XC-excursions.

2 take offs are reflecting the general hill site of the montain coast line. They offer a take off altitude of 363 and 612 meter ASL. From both of them you will land on the same landing place on the beach.

After taking off you will soar in lift of the ridge of the coast line. Even moderate thermic lift can be found. Good enough to keep you up in the air for hrs but without over stressing you on normal days. After flying over the crowded city you will reach the landing site on the beach. Be aware to reach high enough to get over the palm trees of the beach road before langing on the beach.

If you fly direct you will reach the sea with enough altitude for some maneuvering around before landing. Be aware that flying over water requires an automatic life jacket and cutter knife for emergency situations.

In thermic active days you can experience smaller XC-excursions along the coast line. Just be aware you have to get over the dense town of Alanya before you can land on the beach.

Lovely flying area. I was there last winter. Take-off is a bit flat, and you should be careful in no-wind conditions. First, flying above the green zone, then the city and then landing on an endless beach just in front of the hotel was priceless🤗
