Elementary Paragliding Course

  • to

  • Kamshet

    Pune, Maharasthra (map)

    18.520430 73.856743

  • 4 Days Paragliding Course in Kamshet, Pune

    Last day for Initial payment will be Oct 4th 2013.

    Duration: 4 Days
    Degree of difficulty: Somewhere between easy and strenous

    You can also do 1 day Trip on Wed Dec 25th or Sat 28th Dec for Tandem Flights. Charges are at Rs 2500 for a 10 min flight. You will have to manage your own transport to/fro Kamshet.

    Paragliding is the closest one can feel about flying.  The take-off slope is divided into 3 stages - The First, Second & Third Bump. One gets a chance to do ground handling for 2 days and then fly from the Bumps. The Bumps are in a hierarchy and gives one longer air time as one proceeds.

    Basic Courses

    Day - 1 - Familiarization with the equipment, inflation technique and ground run. Practice ground runs and hopping techniques.

    Day - 2 - Alpine launch (take off techniques).

    Day - 3 - Supervised solo flight including practice turns.

    Day - 4 - Practice spot landing and solo flight.

    What is paragliding
    A paraglider is a mixture of parachute and hangglider (delta). The shoot is made of a rectangular peace of rip stop nylon which is specially coated with polyurethane to avoid porosity. The shape is attached to a reed by lines. The canopy is constructed of a top and a bottom surface joined by a number of vertical segments, resulting in chambers known as "the cells". The opening at the front is called the leading edge. After inflation the canopy takes up an airfoil shape with a fattish lower surface and a curved top. The rear edge of the wing is called the trailing edge. The lines are made of very strong Kevlar and are usually encased in an outer sheath of nylon. The risers connect the canopy lines to the reed. The trailing edge is connected by risers called control lines and constitute the most important part of the glider. The control risers let the pilot maneuver the paraglider.

    Approximate Cost per head for the Course: 18,500.00 (Includes Food, Transportation, Accomodation, GHAC donation and Org fund). Please pay an initial amount of 10,000 towards the booking of your slot by Oct 4th 2013. Please keep in mind these dates are very popular and get filled early on.
