Turkey SIV - 3

Availability : Yes


This SIV course has evolved and been perfected over twenty four years and is probably the most famous and talked about course we offer. Running alongside the SIV courses, we also offer bespoke Acro courses with our long time friend and colleague, Johan Eriksson


You are taught all aspects of controlling your wing during the SIV, from deflations and wingovers to stall recovery and SATS, (if you wish). Then, when you fly XC, you have the added confidence and skill in glider control, which allows you to focus on positive things like finding lift and coring, which free's your mind and helps you fly further.

You will be given detailed briefings prior to each flight and in-flight instruction over the radio by Jocky beneath you in the safety boat, followed by an individual de-brief, usually in the comfort of the Mosaic hotel.

All flights are filmed in HD and presented during the course on our stylish USB card to help pilots perfect their techniques by viewing the flights in their own time. It’s a great gift to go home with a share with family and friends.

The idea of this course is to give you confidence in your ability to control your glider, so you must be able to hear the radio and understand the flight tasks you are asked to do. If you are not sure of any instruction given then please ask, we are here to help. We want you to enjoy this course and get a great deal out of it so ask questions and have a positive attitude. If you don't want to do any of the manouvres then let us know and we will change you flight program. We can do any flight manouvres to suit your ability and confidence.

The flight training schedule has been carefully designed to be progressive and maximise your training at an achievable pace, however, you can tailor each flight to your own personal requirements if you wish, whether you are participating in SIV or Acro. You will not be expected to move onto the next SIV flight program unless you are happy and confident to go on. Finally remember that you are the pilot in control and you have the final say with regards your own safety.

The normal schedule of this course is; Initial introductions, briefing and admin at 11.00am at the Mozaik hotel Followed by an SIV flight 1 Next two days usually have 2 flights a day, and we end the session with a last a la carte flight. We are only there to give advice and guide, therefore building your flying experience and confidence. You are all qualified and experienced enough to make your own decisions. If in doubt ask.

Conditions can be cool on launch as Babadag reaches almost 2km above sea level so please bring a flying suit or similar.

You will be provided with a bouyancy aid and a water proof radio bag. We will be using 2-metre band radios so if you need to hire one please let Escape know before the course. Hire fee is £30 per week.
