NEW 2024: SIV course in Ölüdeniz, TURKEY

We are excited to now offer SIV courses in Turkey.

Want to know how we work? Watch the video below:

Why is our course more expensive than others?

The way we teach with the pre-course content you will have access to learning material long before the course starts, you are not just paying for the days you are physically with us. We also use software on a tablet to do the debrief in a classroom with a big TV rather than in the hotel bar which means you will learn so much more, in much more detail.

We have become world-renowned for our teaching methods, and by combining our pre-course content with mental training and detailed debriefs of each flight you will soon see the results and paragliding will start to make sense like never before. Remember in life, you pay for what you get.

Why is your course shorter than other SIV providers in Turkey?

We saw that other providers would advertise a 7-day course, but day 1 would be meeting at 5pm for a “kit inspection” and day 7 would be “flying home etc”. We don’t believe in advertising like this, the days we advertise, and the days you pay for are for SIV. No tricks, no padding, just more holiday days for you to train or relax. You will get the same amount of SIV flights as other providers but more time to put those skills to the test. Train, rest, repeat. Repetition is key to unlocking your bandwidth .

But other courses will quite often offer “SIV & XC course”, surely that’s better than just doing SIV?

Let’s be clear, Olu Deniz, Turkey although world-renowned for SIV, is not a good place for XC. The “XC” to Butterfly Valley is a top to bottom, you can glide there, you don’t need to be guided there by an SIV instructor. In our course we will give you the psychological tools and technical knowledge to be confident enough to train by yourselves, this is where the real learning happens. We won’t waste your precious holiday time on a day out when you can just glide there yourself after your own training session. You pay a lot for our time and knowledge, but you have to be able to put that stuff into practice, in the real world, when it counts, this is what you should be doing after the course. Get the most out of your time in Turkey, save the XC for the Alps.

The pilot:

To learn optimally you need to be in a good mood and come with an open mind to learning new things. You need to be ready to step outside of your comfort zone, just a little to not get excessively stressed but enough to learn and discover new sensations.

Be motivated by the personalized content of this course.

Be ready to communicate openly, without fear of judgment with the coach.

Before the start of the course, you will join our bespoke software and have access to content covering areas such as goal setting, sports psychology, mental preparation, some tests of your knowledge, our methodologies, how to launch your rescue, videos on maneuvers, how we behave under stress and much more.

All this information will allow you to start effective visualization for a smoother transition into your course.

Get ready with our article on the 4 fundamentals!

The instructor:

On our side, we are putting in place a good working environment:

  • An individual form is to be completed before the course, which allows the coach to imagine a personalized program.
  • Bespoke software filled with knowledge to prepare you for the course.
  • Individual discussions, several times a day to monitor your progress and adapt the program.
  • A pleasant environment to promote learning, spacious and quiet classrooms, comfortable shuttles, a personalized daily rhythm
  • Educational materials, videos, mental and technical sheets.

The learning will begin long before the start of our course. The information you read or watch on the software will already begin to change your flying. The SIV course itself is only a small part of your journey. We will learn how to use personalized tools to continue your learning after the course is finished. As the old saying goes:

“Give a man a fish and you will feed him for a day, teach a man to fish and you will feed him for a lifetime”.

We offer a methodology based on a real understanding of you, the pilot.

You are the most important factor under your wing, and we will not be there after the course, therefore you must commit to truly learning each maneuver to be able to use it when it really matters.

This is why we base our teachings on your piloting actions and your precision in different situations.

We accompany you on the radio, and each exercise will be debriefed immediately. You will repeat the maneuver as many times as necessary for your brain to carry out the exercise with full situational awareness.

We will help guide you with brief instructions to work on each technical point as they arise.

This course is based on personal development and not only on the reproduction of maneuvers.

  • We realised that reproducing simulation exercises in a short time, 2 or 3 days, just increased the ego by satisfying it to have carried out certain maneuvers without truly integrating the skills to use them in real-time.
  • We also noticed that only 10% of our students reproduced what they had done during the course, which is too few, remember we all learn at different speeds.
  • As a result, we conclude that simulating maneuvers is easy when you are in a supported environment but taking responsibility for doing it alone requires awareness of what you are doing to limit the risks.
  • So that’s why we are trained in mental preparation in addition to being coaches for the technical aspects.
  • Flyeo instructors are fully qualified BHPA instructors and Flyeo is a British Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association (BHPA) registered school as well as a Fédération française de vol libre (FFVL) registered school.

Our SIV courses in Turkey will be running in May and October.
