PARAGLID­ING

India Today - - SIMPLY PUNE -

Does the idea of fly­ing free in the air ex­cite your child? Then Tem­ple Pi­lots, a 14 year-old paraglid­ing school, is the place to head to on a sum­mer week­end. They have spe­cial three-day cour­ses for chil­dren which will teach your child the ba­sics of paraglid­ing and land­ing. The school’s chief in­struc­tor is an ex-air Force fighter pi­lot, a fact that in­spires con­fi­dence in many.

With sep­a­rate cour­ses for adults and joyrides for those who don’t want the trou­ble of learn­ing, you can turn this ac­tiv­ity into a fam­ily get­away.

HIGH­LIGHTS Trained in­struc­tors teach you how to take flight; joyrides for those who don’t want to do the whole course; scenic sur­round­ings which make it a fun get­away from the city

COST In­tro­duc­tory fly­ing course be­gins at Rs 8,500 (Mon­dayWed­nes­day). A 12-minute joyride costs Rs 2,500
