Seven Turkish female pilots of one of the world's best-known centers for paragliding offer tourists the opportunity to fly high above the Mediterranean landscape of southwestern Turkey. Towering above the stunning Ölüdeniz or Blue Lagoon nestling on the coastline, the Mount Babadağ in Fethiye district of Muğla province is considered one of the best sites in the world for paragliding. Among 300 paragliding pilots at the Babadağ Aerial Sports and Recreation Center, seven female pilots make tandem flights with tourists launching nearly a kilometer (over 3,000 feet) above sea level. Yeliz Bakar, the first woman to fly as a pilot from Babadağ, told Anadolu Agency that she made her first flight when she was 17, and receiving training at 20. 'I want to see more women on the runway,' Bakar said and added: 'Usually families entrust their children to us in the air. Since I'm a mother, I think families prefer us more.' Paragliding pilots can reach altitudes of 1,200-1,900 meters (3,900-6,200 feet), finally landing on the Belçekiz Beach having enjoyed peerless views throughout their flight.
