If you are looking to be a Facebook Pilot, then this is not the place for you.

Learn to Fly and Conquer the Sky

Learn to soar the skies from the Pioneers of the Sport. Be a pilot’s pilot. We don’t just want you to learn to control equipment, but to think like a pilot. So you can take decisions on the fly. Pun Intended.

Paragliding in India haven’t gotten the recognition that one would expect from a country this vast. But in the last 20 odd years, our personnel have not only represented India in Paragliding, but racked up several Accolades on the way.

Our instructors aim to create competition level pilots to represent themselves and their country internationally. It all depends upon the passion you develop towards the sport. But if you have it, we’ll know.

The Basic Pilot

THE FIRST STEP TO BECOME A SKILLED PILOT

THE BASIC PILOT

Basic Course P1 + P2

The building block of becoming a skilled pilot where you will practice and learn all ground handling, safety skills, techniques and theory to get you in the air as well as get some air time.

Ground Training

  • Introduction to Canopy & Equipment
  • Forward/Alpine Launch Method
  • Ground Handling & Directional Control

Flight Training

  • Site Assessment
  • Small Hops
  • Maintaining Course and Launch Speed
  • Turn Control & Landing Procedure
  • Planned Approaches and Soaring Flights

After an in depth explanation of the equipment and techniques, we’re ready to get started. In order to fly, one must fail to fly first. Have patience and let us help you fine tune your techniques.

Once you’ve perfected these techniques, and our instructors are fully convinced in your ability to fly, you’ll get to take off over a 200 odd ft hill, where you will feel the magic of flight, while being guided over the radio by our instructors.

There’s nothing like your first time. You’ll take off as a student, and land as a pilot.

By the end of this course, expect to be familiarized with the basics of Aerodynamics, Airmanship and Micro-Metrology

INDEPENDENT PILOT

INDEPENDENT PILOT

P3 - BECOMING AN INDEPENDENT PILOT

In this course students learn everything to be able to fly independently including dealing with instabilities, how to descend quickly, advance theory of flight and meteorology

P3 Includes

  • Forward and Reverse launch Method
  • Strong wind launch procedure
  • Site assessment
  • Dealing with instability
  • Soaring flights Top landing
  • Weight shift
  • Pitch and roll control
  • 360° turns
Note – By European norms the training to P3 level is mandatory to fly on your own, other courses are optional.

ADVANCE TRAINING

ADVANCE TRAINING

THERMALLING COACHING

One of the best vehicles a soaring pilot can find is a thermal. These conveyances are like hot air balloons rising to the heavens. The only trouble is that they are invisible for the most part. The Birth of a Thermal, Thermal Triggering, Thermal Sources, Thermal Cycles, Ideal Thermal Conditions and Lift in the Thermal etc.

CROSS COUNTRY COACHING

When you fly near your home site, you can land whenever you want. But during cross country flight, you need to plan ahead. XC flying is an advanced skill, it requires a broad foundation of training and practice to be able to do it consistently. Once the skills of using thermals to gain altitude have been mastered, pilots can glide from one thermal to the next to go cross country weather it’s a flat land or mountains. XC flight encapsulates the true exhilaration of paragliding. There’s no quitting flying, once you start XC Flying.

SIV Courses

SIV or Simulation d’Incident en Vol translates to simulation of incident in flight. This course is conducted over Water. Glider is deliberately destabilized and attempted to regain control. Student learns the limits of his/her wing and also extent of their control over it. Reserve deployment is also practiced.

CONTACT FOR DATES OF ADVANCE TRAINING

Note – Pilot must have completed P3 + 50Hrs and must have their own equipment for advance training.

How do I reach Kamshet?

Pune is the nearest city from Kamshet, and it is just 45 km away from the town. Mumbai is also just around 210 km from Kamshet. Just a few hours drive from either of the cities via private jeeps or cars is the best way to reach the place. Kamshet also has a railway station, and it lies on the Mumbai-Pune railway route.

Minimum flight requirement is 6 flights for the completion of the practical part of P1+P2 course.

How many flights do I get during P3 course?

Minimum flight requirement is of 6 flights for the completion of the practical part of P3 course.

What if I do not get the required no. of flights?

Paragliding as a sport is dependent on the weather conditions on a particular day. If due to bad weather you are unable to fly we try and complete the flights following day again dependent on the weather conditions. Also the decision needs to be taken at the given days.

Can I do P1+P2+P3 together?

Yes you may do all the courses together. In fact it is preferred that you do the courses together as this gives you continuance and gives you the confidence to become an independent pilot fast.

What happens when I complete my course?

After clearing the P3 test you are a certified P3 independent pilot. For further flying as an independent pilot you need to purchase the equipment and you may continue to fly on your own.
