  • Trip introduction

    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.

    Destination

    Indus Paragliding lies in a beautiful village about 110 km away from Mumbai. This professional paragliding school offers you the first step towards free flying through its Elementary Pilot Course. This 4-day course teaches you the basic techniques, and you get 8-10 solo fights under the watchful eyes of experienced instructors.

    The course duration is flexible, and you can complete it over 2 weekends. After you finish your Elementary Pilot course, you are eligible for a 4-day Club Pilot course, where you learn advanced flying techniques and many long duration solo flights.
