This is another small paragraph.

  • Trip introduction

    Would you like to soar high above the ground, the wind in your hair, the sun just beyond your fingertips? Take your first steps into the world of paragliding with our Elementary Pilot Course.

    This sport can be enjoyed at various levels and has lots to offer – you can choose to enjoy relaxing ridge-soaring flights in moderate winds or flying in dynamic conditions to get the adrenaline rush – the choice is yours.

    You will receive a Certificate of Completion after this course, NOT a license. We also update your log book with the skills learned and tasks performed, and you will qualify for the Club Pilot Paragliding Course.

    Destination

    Space Apple is based in Virar, the best place near Mumbai for paragliding training. Being a coastal area the winds are laminar, predictable and ideal for training in the evenings. Ridge soaring and thermalling is possible in mid-afternoon. This 3-day course teaches you the basic techniques that will help you on your journey to becoming a paragliding professional. The entire course consists of five sessions. Your fitness level will decide how many flights you will have in each of these sessions.

    Destination highlights

    • Take your first steps into the professional territory of this adrenalin boosting sport
    • Enjoy a minimum of 6 flights under supervision
    • Get coached by experienced instructors
    • Take advantage of the proximity of this location to the bustling city of Mumbai

  • Day one: Level 1

    Day 1 includes two sessions on flat ground. The first session will cover site and wind assessment, equipment know-how, canopy layout, pre-flight checks, inflation, deflation and ground handling. You will begin your introductory lesson on flat ground. Your instructor will guide you in assessing wind conditions that are appropriate for your level and in understanding your limitations. Knowing the paragliding terms is important as it will help in communication.

    In session two, you will train and tune your body movements to handle the flying equipment and forces of wind.

    Day two: Level 2

    Today we will complete the third and fourth session.

    Third session: We continue practicing what we learned in first two sessions. We will be using the flying glider which is easier to handle. You are expected to run for about 100 feet controlling the glider above your head with minimum instructions. Once you can do this you are ready for a small winch-based flight to understand takeoffs and landings. We may either use hand tow or static tow or a gentle slope to understand take off and landing techniques (Hops) and to get your solo clearance.

    Fourth Session: In this session you will either have winch based flights or hill flying. These will be short flights.

    Day three: Level 3

    There is no morning session on the third day. The fifth session is in the evening where you have independent solo flights from a hill. Depending on wind conditions we choose the training hill for solo flights. Take-off altitude will be between 300 to 450 feet.
