Indus Paragliding is based in Kamshet, near Lonavla. We’re off the old Mumbai-Pune expressway, approximately 110 kms. from Mumbai city.
Are you interested in paragliding as a hobby? Indus Paragliding’s Elementary Pilot Course is your first step towards free flying.
By the end of this 4-day course, you would have had 8-10 solo flights under the direct (radio) supervision of your instructor. You will also learn how to handle your paragliding equipment, how to land and take-off, and how to perform a number of in-air and on-ground techniques.
In the evenings, we arrange informal barbeques and gatherings to discuss the day's events, as well as to exchange stories—all in the lush gardens of Indus Paragliding basecamp, overlooking a lake.
We do not provide a license for this course. But we will update your log book with the skills learned and tasks performed. You will also qualify for the Club Pilot Paragliding Course.
