This course as the name suggests Certifies you for flying at various sites Independently. We will advise and help you buy your gear. In this course, you are given certain tasks which you practice and logged in your certification book. The instructor will supervise and endorse these tasks in your book. The course will either be conducted at local site or during a flying camp by visiting different locations. These are periodically organised to expand experience of club pilots.
In India paragliding is not yet regulated by any body. We do not need any license to fly. This does not mean one can fly anywhere. One cannot fly in Sensitive and Restricted areas. You may be stopped by local clubs from flying their site if they feel you do not have adequate experience. The skills you develop in this course will speak for you.
The skills you learn in this course will mature you enough to approach and deal with fellow pilots you meet on flying sites. You will also learn to identify novice and experience pilots, fly with unknown pilots safely. You will inculcate spirit of airmanship with necessary rules for flying in a group.
If you are our past student then we do not charge for this course, you voluntary contribute towards the expenses if any. In fact there is no paid course after P1 and P2 level in our club as we feel that student progress at their own pace once they learn the basics - just by sharing experiences, reading and observing. Our students have been flying in Himalayas and many locations all over the world without our supervision after completing the basic courses with us.
