An SIV course is pretty much the most fun way there is to become a safer pilot!

Graham is working with Fly Sussex’s senior instructor Tim Digings to help you learn what you need to fly safely in all sorts of different conditions – particularly those you’re likely to encounter while flying cross country – or anywhere in thermals.

wp-1451540012167.jpgYou’ll learn about the limits of your wing and how to deal with situations you may encounter when flying in thermic or more turbulent conditions.

The course will take you through the essentials you need to safely pilot your wing in different conditions such as dealing with collapses, using the energy of your wing, controlling pitch and descent techniques. For those who want to go further, we will move on to stalls, wingovers and more advanced manouevres.

All this takes place in the safest possible conditions – over water with a rescue boat on hand – in the stunning setting of Oludeniz.

You don’t need masses of experience before you do an SIV. The course will be adapted to suit your level. It’s never too early to start learning to be a safer pilot – as long as you can take off and land safely without radio guidance.

Thompson, Monarch, Thomas Cook and Easyjet all fly direct to Dalaman Airport from Gatwick and other London Airport.

We will be staying at the Magic Tulip Hotel (not Magic Tulip Beach). We have negotiated a special rate of £13 per night for a room with air conditioning, fridge and safe.

You may choose to stay at another hotel in Oludeniz, but please check before you book that it is within walking distance to the sea front and town centre. If in doubt, please ask us before you book as we won’t be providing transport to and from hotels.

Oludeniz is a well known holiday resort so great for partners and families.
