WHAT DO I LEARN FROM IT?

Thereafter you progress to a number of higher flights, radio supervised by your instructor. The aim here is to hone the basic skills of launching, turning and landing and give you a strong foundation.

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.
"I recently did the EP course with FlyNirvana. Saying that everything was amazing and fantastic would be an understatement. I loved everything about it, the stay at Native Place, such a serene and beautiful location on the lake. the instructors were amazing and experienced mentors. The whole experience was enthralling with a sense of calmness. I am completely hooked and plan to be a regular at the native place now."- Jatin Patni, Mumbai, IndiaREAD MORE TESTIMONIALS
