Ben bu siteyi yine bozman─▒n bir yolunu buldum. F─▒rsat─▒m oldu─čunda d├╝zeltmeye ve yeni bir ┼čeyler yapmaya ├žal─▒┼čaca─č─▒m. O zamana kadar @oytungur‘den ula┼čabilirsiniz.

My First SOLO!


I flew the first solo of my aviation career. I complete the first traffic pattern at DHMI ├çorlu Atat├╝rk International Airport (LTBU). I’ve take-off from runway 04 safely, and joined the right traffic pattern after Take-Off.

I entered the exams organized by Pegasus Airlines and take my ATPL training at Atlantic Flight Academy. After successfully completing all ground lessons, I’ve started flight training lectures. After I gain required skills for flying solo under the supervision of my Flight Instructors (FI’s) I flew my first solo flight. After I safely take off from ├çorlu runway 04, I took the left traffic pattern at 1500 ft and safely landed to ├çorlu 04 runway.

I did not remove the mistakes that I’ve made with the excitement of flying alone for the first time within the safety limits during engine start-up, in the taxi and after landing, in order to keep them as an example for the future flights. I wish safe flights to everyone.

Still Flying


This is my third official Instagram face filter. After getting use to creating face filters for Instagram I’ve decided to create a filter to explore 3D creation possibilities. Basically pilot flies over low poly earth like planet with Diamond DA20 aircraft. You can control your bank angle and pitch attitude with your head movement. If you get excited while having this experience and open your mouth plane gets higher, better, faster, stronger.

Technically speaking this filter have better algorithms than most of my filters. I’ve expected this filter to skyrocket in terms of impressions and share over the Instagram. Unfortunately it wasn’t the case. Anyway this is my favorite filter by now. Hope you like that.

Which Plane Are You?

Which Plane are You?
Spark AR Filter

This is my second official Instagram face filter. It has variety of airplanes ranging from Diamond DA20 to Airbus A380. Each time you start recording using that filter random airplane will be shown to you in several seconds. The strange thing is that filter doesn’t require high skills to create but using it is lots of fun. I believe these types of randomly selected face filters have huge impact on Instagram and its users. I also was there to catch the wave and see how it goes as well. This is also my most used filter up to date.

A321 Instagram Face Filter

That is my first Instagram face filter. That is an Airbus A321 type airplane just turns around and around on top your head. I’ve created this with bit of 3d design knowledge and the right applications.

I’ve done two revisions not that filter so far. First one was adding Winter Scheme which creates snow on long press on the screen. Second one was New Year Resolution 2020 Glasses. It is activated by raising eyebrows.

I am not considering to improve that filter due to regulations for the textures that I’ve used are no longer accepted.

#perfectMonth Update

July 2019 Running Data

I did it at the first try. That felt good. Run everyday for 15 minutes, approximately 2,40 km per each day. Just skipped the 4th day. But I paid it in the last day. I think this counts as a win.


Running at Istanbul Half Marathon in 2017

Since I’ve started running 8 years ago. I never had a change to run every day of a one single week. Last week was the first time I’ve ever done that. From now on I’ll name it #completeWeek. Amazingly enough if I run today -hopefully- it will be the second #completeWeek attempt.


New Balance Half Marathon and 10K Race, while I was crossing the finish line.

I decided to bring a new running challenge to myself which is called Perfect Month. The idea behind that challenge is to run every day of a month. It doesn’t matter which month it is, just pick one. To achieve the goal, you need to start from the 1st day of the month until last day.

I think I am going to attempt this challenge in June. Wish me good luck.


  • Start from the 1st day of any month.
  • Run at least 1 km.
  • If you fail in the month you should wait for another one.
  • Each session should be post there.
  • If it is too much consider canceling.
  • Not a single break allowed.

I don’t personally recommend this challenge to anyone. I just want to see my limits. I am very close with professionals & MD’s who are experts in their areas checking my physical health & condition for that kind of challenges. If you’d like attempt this challenge please consider taking advise from your doctor. Otherwise injury is very painful thing.



#Just15 is a running series includes tens of runs in a local park near to my neighborhood. The park is approximately 350m long loop and has 7m of elevation difference total. Grade levels differs from -%15 to %7.

The goal of #Just15 is running 3 km in the park just in 15 minutes. This is actually easy to achieve in the long straights and open places. But due to the high grade changes and short curves on the field it makes it hard to run that distance in the desired time. Also the GPS signal of the run capturing devices have hard time due to the trees and tall buildings around the park.

The first run was on August of 2017, and still I am trying to finish 3K’s in #Just15.

From that time I run 3K’s in just 15 minutes several times in different locations. But not in that park. At the first sight it looked like easily achievable target but right now I feel like one of my lifelong achievement in running.

Due to its difficulty level I divided the goal in two parts. The first part of the goal is to reach 8th lap within 15 minutes and get use to it. This is equivalent for 2.8K run. The second part of the goal is push much more to finish 3K.

Right now I am capable of doing first part of the goal but gave a break for a while because of work and frustration not to earn it quickly.

Until I achieve #Just15 I’ll prepare myself novel goals to push myself in to little bit more.
