About us

Maya Gliders

Flying a Turkish-designed paraglider has been our dream for many years.

We started our company in Ölüdeniz, Fethiye in 2012 to accomplish this dream and began to create our designs on paper and carry out research during the same year.
In 2014, we conducted tests on NOMAD, the first prototype wing.
Today, our product range comprises new wings, harnesses and reserve parachutes, and with your support we will continue to design, improve and innovate at all levels.

  • I just Test the new class B of @mayagliders the Shaman 2 and is a pleasure to fly, I have the opportunity to make a classic cross country flight route around in the base of the Himalayas in Nepal and the performance is excellent, flying this glider is a pleasure from the beginning on takeoff, climbing in thermals, on transit using the speed bar, the glider is just efficient in all of them, the Shaman2 can be described with one word “Comfort” is a excellent choice to be the first glider afther finish the school flights, excellent job ones again Maya Gliders.
