Flying in Cyprus

The flying sites approved for paragliding in Cyprus are not many, and most of them were developed initially for hangliding.

The most known paragliding sites are  the hill of  ancient CURIUM , DORA , KALO CHORIO and STAVROVOUNI near  Pyrga village(Larnaca area) on the east side of the high-way from Limassol to Nicosia.

The first 3 sites are situated in the district of Limassol.

There are many Cypriot paragliding and hanggliding pilots who are members of the Ikaros Paragliding and Hang gliding club and the Cyprus Aerosport Federation .

 

Visitor pilots should be aware that they can fly FREELY only in the free part (non occupied) of the Republic of Cyprus which is on the south part of the island. The northern part of Cyprus  since the 20th of July 1974 is  under  Turkish Occupation and flying there is hazardous and prohibited, as the whole area  it is a military area administered  by Turkish occupation army. Therefore you never know if flying there needs permission or not from the Turkish army "authorities''. Though, there is a  site used by visitor pilots  near St. Hilarion castle not far from the occupied city of  Kyrenia.

If you are coming to Cyprus don't leave your country before you print the letter and the  site guide
