Oludeniz Air Games 2019
If you know Oludeniz you will undoubtedly be familiar with the paragliding in the resort. This is taken to another level in October when the annual Oludeniz Air Games start. You often see people at any time of the year counting how many paragliders are in the sky at any particular moment. Forget it for the air games week there are too many to count. The atmosphere of the place also changes with the event the place has a real buzz.
Oludeniz Air Games – 15th to the 20th October 2019
Not only are there hundreds of paragliders. There are also base jumpers and wing suits. As well as many acrobatic displays from the paragliders who enter the competitions. I remember lying on the beach a couple of years back. Watching the base jumpers falling out of the sky above me. Looking up from the ground it seemed that they were far too low to be able to open their parachutes in time.
Look on Youtube for Oludeniz Air Games
Youtube is full of Videos of the event which will give you a feel for what Oludeniz is like during Air Games week. Due to the amount of people landing at the same time you often see paragliders caught up in trees at the front. With the local fire engine in attendance getting people down.
Having been during the air games a few times now It really is one of the best times to visit although being in October the evenings will be getting colder. That said we went a couple of years ago and it was still shorts and t shirt temperatures at night. I think that was unusual though and on our last couple of days it was getting colder at night. I am looking forward to going again next year in 2019. The dates of the air games are from the 15th of October to the 20th of October 2019.
