The Turkish free-flying paradise of Oludeniz and Babadag mountain, where the 2010 Oludeniz Air Games will take place this October, have been getting ready to host the autumn’s big event.

The road to launch has been widened and resurfaced, and the 1700m take-off gravelled. There is a new cafe with breathtaking views, and a live broadcasting system is up and running, The higher, 1960 m, take-off is still a work-in-progress, but will be ready soon.

Owners think the paragliding venue is now worthy of such an international flying event.
