The adventure lovers those wish to enjoy paragliding should under take a
specific training program of the aero-sports. The program consists of theory
lessons in safety rules and precautions, lessons in aerodynamics with the
specific stress on explanation of flight, air safety, maintenance of the
para-glider canopy and atmospheric conditions. Comprehensive ground training
is the most significant part of the course.
Organizations like Indian Institute of Skiing and Mountaineering, Himchal
Pradesh Tourism Corporation and many other private clubs have made efforts
to train a number of people. Good numbers of people are now efficient enough
of solo flying and have taken up the sport on regularly bases.
One has to be physically fit, avoid making too many performances or stunts
in aero sports as its an out door activity that too is performed in air and
also mother nature is full of amazement. You need to be mentally vigilant
and strong that assist you to cross any obstacle of paragliding. You should
have gone under specific training in flying a glider. If you are new to this
sport, better go for a basic training first. The basic techniques of para
gliding include - launching, turning and landing.
The essential equipment required in para gliding are a glider, when it is
overblown, it offers resistance to the thermal currents and slow down the
rate of descending, fittings that affix the para-glider stiffly and safe to
the pilot. It is so designed that it can be removed hurriedly to evade hurt,
as pilot drags over the small distance on the ground after landing.
A helmet and a reserve parachute are for the pilot's security and a
vario-meter to measure the rising or falling of the glider are all essential
equipment required in para-gliding.
Where as in hang glider, the wind-speed meter and indicators are used for
correct advancement and secure landing. For more comfortable flying
adventure a small engine and wheel with extra seat have now been added. Hang
gliders are portable that can be carried comfortably on the your back or in
a jeep to the gliding area and can be set quickly.
The speed of the balloon depends on the wind blows you can't do much over
it but high wind landing invariably require expertise and experience. The
passenger capacity depends on the size of the balloon, but usually it varies
from 2 in sport balloons and up to 12 people in passenger balloons. The
balloon crew tracks the flight and is usually there when the balloon lands.
One should go for fitting and comfortable clothing, rugged shoes or boots,
sunglasses, gloves and a sun cap. When alone a balloon can rise up to 800
feet and above, while those in-groups may be restricted to heights between
200 and 500 feet.
Safety is the first and foremost concern. The most modern and advanced
equipment in the industry is used to fly a balloon. Each balloon is
regularly inspected and before every flight precautions are taken to ensure
the entire balloon system is functioning properly. The dual fuel system and
burners is installed in all craft for absolute protection.
