APPI Paragliding course: Fly friends

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!

 

Passer by dummy caught on camera!

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.

Ajinkya figuring out his packing ends! 😀

 

Shrishti figuring out her packing end!
Ali figured his packing end I guess!
Packed!

A quick packing of glider and putting them all back in the bag, I started hunting for my favourite people and snack!

Kaka getting us chai-poha daily was the only motivation for me to land! 😀
Bidding him adieu! Om Beiber – the grown up kid!
Col Danvir, pleasure knowing you sir 🙂

Wrapped up the day with some kickass biryani for dinner, was too hungry to click a pic!

Leaving you with this!

  1. I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was
    great. I don’t know who you are but definitely you’re
    going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already 😉 Cheers!

  2. Greetings! Very helpful advice in this particular post!
    It is the little changes that make the most significant changes.
    Thanks a lot for sharing!

  3. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
    “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  4. Ahaa, its pleasant discussion about this post at this
    place at this blog, I have read all that, so at this time me
    also commenting at this place.

  5. Very good website you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any forums that cover
    the same topics talked about in this article? I’d really like to be a part of community where I can get feed-back
    from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same
    interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me
    know. Appreciate it!

  6. obviously like your website but you have to take a look at the spelling
    on several of your posts. Many of them are rife
    with spelling problems and I to find it very bothersome
    to tell the reality on the other hand I will surely come back again.

  7. Link exchange is nothing else except it is just placing the
    other person’s website link on your page at appropriate place
    and other person will also do same in favor of you.

  8. Thank you for all your efforts on this web page. My niece really loves going through investigation and it’s really easy to understand why.
