One day paragliding workshop



?Who should enroll for this course
Most suitable for a couple or small group of friends who are interested in adventure sports and want to explore paragliding. Individuals can register to get notified to join an open group. Small group size and our location help us reduce the risk factors
Statistics also shows that less than 10 percent of the people who undergo P1 training continue with the sport. So about 90 percent people spend time and money doing P1 course to realize they do not want to continue paragliding.  Our customized workshop of half a day or a full day orientation course is an ideal solution to address this issue. If you immediately sign up for a P1 course this amount is adjusted against the P1 course fees
.

What do you achieve in such short period?
You get to understand and experience the thrill of paragliding by spending less time, less money. If you are good with your motor skills you will manage a few tethered flights at a low height. This session is conducted on a beach. The soft sand at touchdown and absence of any obstacle reduces risk factors and hardship as against the rough terrain at the base of a hill. The calm evening sea breeze and overall ambience is a perfect setting for you to taste your first flight. Your sense of achievement and the experience of free flight captured against the backdrop of setting sun captured by a candid camera are just priceless.  . Apart from paragliding you also get to spend some time with power kites. The exposure to these sports, interaction with qualified instructors, the photographs for your face book page make this a value for money package.



What is the difference between half a day and a full day session?
Obvious is the time duration of the workshop and so will be the cost. Other than that during the full day we have a theory, video and a simulator session.  In full day in case you are unable to have a tethered hop we give you a tandem joyride so flying is guaranteed. Your age, weight and physical health is criteria taken into consideration before enrollment. There is no time for a theory session in a half day session, you see a demo and straight away get strapped on to a harness for a hands on experience.  In both sessions we manage to get some pictures for you to share on face book. In both sessions you also get to spend some time with power kites.

How to join and the course fees?
To make this cost effective and enjoyable for participants we take minimum batch of two persons and maximum four persons. You book for the course in advance using our payment options. The fees for half day (3:00pm till sunset) is Rs.2500/-. Course fees for a full day session is Rs.5, 000/-.
