I took a break of a day to be at work to fix an “AVENGERS-INFINITY WAR, marketing world’s big bang just released” and with it, all our target group were unveiled.
Heading back to base early in the morning,
Rushing from home to Temple pilots school was a crazy drive through the city and the picturesque Dehu road cantonment area.
A quick stop at a tapri for cutting and some vada pav. After being replenished, I made a dash for the base.
On reaching the base, Jeetu sir a.k.a Jets had already started APPI reserve(parachute) simulation, I joined in to only realise that I have done this part earlier, but in this sport, every lesson is a learning.
Curing the harness is a beautiful experience, checking for your exact body positioning is an exercise every art, craft and sports lover will appreciate the connections one makes with their beloved tool.
In this case, one’s life depends on the preparedness of the flight.
Also, today was the day when my favourites at the camp were going wrapping up their courses and heading back home.
With a heavy heart, we made them pack the tempo again for one last time 😀
The best about the bus ride to the flying site was the pitstop at Rangoli restaurant where we would get the best sugarcane juice one could gather on a hot day like today!
I have no clue why I have no picture of this landmark of a place. *Will add up if I get one*
Quenching the thirst for that moment we moved ahead to the new flying spot where the wind was a bit cross(North West) and we had to wait up a bit for the gust to settle down a bit.
That also calls for parawaiting shots!
After a short wait, we flew and boy we flew like a charm!
A good flight of 45 min and speed bar manoeuvre, i headed for the landing spot for a “close to spot landing” spot!
Packing scenes like these.
A quick packing of glider and putting them all back in the bag, I started hunting for my favourite people and snack!
Wrapped up the day with some kickass biryani for dinner, was too hungry to click a pic!
Leaving you with this!
