Club Pilot Course

Club pilot course for paragliding perfection


Club Pilot

This course is for elementary pilots looking to learn more skills and fly longer and higher.

An elementary pilot course done in the recent past in any part of the world with a log of  Minimum 15 Solo EP flights followed by a Pre Soaring Instructional Tandem will make you eligible to take up this course.
I fly airplanes for a living but getting airborne without being enclosed by a coca cola can and the aid of a noisy engine is way more fun. My first visit to India was made complete by the stunning scenery, the new friends I made, the music, the parties. The tandoori barbeque at Native Place was my favourite. Thanks guys...I am looking forward to coming back.

Nirvana Adventures puts your safety first: We are conservative when it comes to training you on bunny slopes, tandem flights or High mountain sites. We do this only when the conditions are ideal. Safety is our main concern and we rely on good weather conditions for training you. Kamshet is fortunate enough to have the best climate with light and moderate winds for most of the year round, so fly-able days are plentiful.

At about this time you can begin thinking about buying your own wing, becoming a hobby pilot and escaping to the solitude and freedom of cool air above and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow pilots.
