Free to fly: We are a team of professional paragliding pilots and trainers who are very patient, safe, lots of fun and possessed with a personal passion for flying. We offer Tandem flights & Paragliding courses for people who dream of flying. Simple as that.
At Ranikhet, we have a basic training site which has been declared by the old buzzards as a dream site to learn to fly safely. By the end of a 5 -6 days course (P1 for a Beginner & P2 for a Novice), most participants would have learned basic flying and ground handling skills and also logged in a solo flight.
At Mukteshwar, we offer thrilling tandem flights with experienced pilots. Apart from top to bottom flights, under suitable wind conditions high flights are also possible where you can soar like an eagle and glide through the valley before landing beside a surprised local.
The paragliding season extends from September – March and at both locations, we have camps to care for your basic needs of food and shelter while you take the right weight paragliding wing and enjoy looking at the valleys and snow

Day 1: On the first day the students will be introduced to the sport of paragliding. They will be introduced to the equipment, the laws of flying, how to read the landscape, the wind factor in paragliding and so on. The better half of the day will be spent in making the students understand the basics of paragliding. Then, the students will be given to handle the glider on the ground where they will get to feel the glider and its strength in the wind for the first time.
Day 2: The day will be spent ground handling. Today, the students will gear up and practice take-offs and handling the glider on the ground. They will be able to control the glider in mid air and keep it there as long as possible. They will learn how to turn the glider and if they are very good at it they might just take a short flight of about 1 minute going at a height of about 50 feet.
Day 3: Today the students will be motivated to take short flights where they can fly up to a height of more than 100 feet. This will sharpen their take-off skills and help them get better in handling the glider in mid air. They will learn how to make turn when flying. A very important day for the students.
Day 4: Today the students practice take-offs like the previous day and later move on to higher grounds and take off from there. They can get a flight of up to 3 minutes and get more time in mid air. This is a very good flying experience for the students as they get long flights and get their confidence in air.
Day 5: Today the students climb up to the top of the hill and make their long flights which can get them a flight of 5 minutes or more. They can easily climb at a height of more than 300 feet and taste a long flight. This will give an immense confidence to the students and after the course they can get the confidence of flying solo wherever possible for them.
