Paragliding and air sports in Miletus
Miletus, Byzantine Palation, Turkish Balat, ancient Greek city of western Anatolia, some 20 miles (30 km) south of the present city of Söke, Turkey. It lies near the mouth of the Büyükmenderes (Menderes) River. Before 500 BC, Miletus was the greatest Greek city in the east. It was the natural outlet for products from the interior of Anatolia and had a considerable wool trade with Sybaris, in southern Italy. Miletus was important in the founding of the Greek colony of Naukratis in Egypt and founded more than 60 colonies on the shores of the Black Sea, including Abydos, Cyzicus, Sinope (now Sinop), Olbia, and Panticapaeum.
In addition to its commerce and colonization, the city was distinguished for its literary and scientific-philosophical figures, among them Thales, Anaximander, Anaximenes, and Hecataeus. Together with the people of the other two Ionian cities of Caria, Myus and Priene, the Milesians spoke a distinctive Ionian dialect. Little is known about Milesian government before 500 BC. At the beginning and end of the 6th century BC, however, the city was ruled by the tyrants Thrasybulus and Histiaeus, respectively.

“This was an unforgettable experience. You get a really nice overview of the city and all the pilots are so kind. I did it with 3 friends and a nice little detail is you get walkie talkies to talk to each other while paragliding which we found very cool. It’s more than worth the price!!” – Jolan L.
“I had a wonderful experience with Marcos and his staff. Marcos arranged for round trip transportation from Lara Beach to the take off area. Weather could not have been better. Davut, the pilot, was extremely confident and experienced. I felt very safe with him flying. The moment of take off is simply breathtaking. If you are going to try paragliding once, do it in Miletus, can’t beat the scenery.” – Magda C
