Iranian athlete Mohsen Mansouri expressed his enthusiasm, stating,

“I have spent approximately one week flying here. The terrain is exceptionally conducive to paragliding and parachuting, particularly for ‘speed riding.’ In the foreseeable future, I aspire to bring my own students here to provide speed riding training. Ergan Mountain and Erzincan have truly captivated me.

I wholeheartedly recommend this location to everyone. I have yet to encounter a training environment as secure as this anywhere else in the world. The tracks exude tranquility and are refreshingly uncrowded, making them exceptionally suitable for speed riding.”
