19th International Air Games
I first went quite a few years ago not knowing the air games was on. Since then I have been back 3 times during October. Making sure I catch at least some of the air games. Not only do you get the great holiday as always. Its nice to see the build up for the games and all the people there for the event.

In addition to the numerous paragliders who flock there for this time of year filling the sky from dawn till dusk. The competition events are very impressive from the aerial displays by solo and team paragliders. To base jumpers and people in wing suits. The base jumpers had my heart in my mouth watching them fall towards the ground and opening their parachutes just in time.
Youtube Oludeniz Air Games
If you want to see what Oludeniz is like during the air games. Have a look on Youtube there are numerous videos up of the event. If you think the front at Oludeniz is busy with paragliders during the summer. Its nothing compared to what its like during the air games in October. Seeing tables and chairs cloaked with a parachute or a fire engine helping a paraglider out of a tree is not that uncommon. But with that amount of solo pilots there landing at the same time its hardly surprising.
Be prepared for it getting cooler at nights October can be unpredictable. We have been there with jeans and sweatshirts at night and some of the bars have fires outside. Other times we have been and wore t shirts and shorts in the evening. Although I would expect it to be colder at night. and if it isn’t its a bonus. Ive booked again for in 2018. The 19th International Air Games 2018 – 16th of October to the 21st of October in Oludeniz Turkey.
