Event info

Being the first comp of the season, Spring Cup comes back with its 3rd edition. Pulley to pulley racing in strong spring conditions can’t get any better.
It’s a six-day event running in May 16 – 21, 2023, with first day as training day and no rest days. Çameli, an extraordinary XC and competition site in southwestern Turkey, has hosted Turkish Nationals in 2016 and 2019 and Pre-World Cups in 2013, 2014, 2018 and 2022. This event will be FAI CAT2.

Flying site

Cameli is located not far from Oludeniz and Denizli. It’s a major XC flights intersection of South-West Turkey. The possibilities to fly in all directions are enormous. This area was discovered by an experienced Turkish pilot Semih Sayir, who used to take small groups for XC tours there.
The best flying conditions are in May, June, end of August and September with excellent thermal strength of 6-7 m/s. July can be windy, so you cannot expect every day to be suitable for flying. In winter the place is not flyable - the road to take off is blocked with snow. Still at any other time of the year the place offers good flying conditions with thermal strength of 4-5 m/s. So both in spring and in autumn till the end of October Camelly welcomes pilots to have fine XC flights.During the flying season the thermals are usually active until 5 p.m. in spring and 6 p.m. in summer. The best time to have a start window is 12. 30 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Average flights made there are about 60-80 km. But with S-SW winds this place place has a good potential for XC flights exceeding 200 km. Cloud base is generally 3000 m and more. In the middle of April 2013 the pilots reached the altitude of 3700 m there. But it is rather a new place and the experts are sure that it has more records to come.Average task distances for Camely Open PrePWC 2013 will be 80-100 km. Cloud base in June is usually at 3000 m and average thermal strength is about 4 - 6 meters.

Take off Yaylacik Hill: 2130 ASL (36°58'49.12"N 29°18'50.78"E )
Winds: SW, S SE winds to fly north directions. The take-off ground has been rebuilt by the beginning of 2013. Its size was almost tripled with the help of construction machines in order to host international competitions. Cameli Open Pre World Cup 2013 will be the first competition of this renovated site. Besides the fire watch house of Forestry Department of Turkey has been built there recently. So the road to take off was also reconstructed. Now cars can easily ride up right to the start. It takes about 50 min to drive to the take-off from Cameli.
