Hi, Thanks for writing the detailed review with pros and cons. I have been planning to learn paragliding for sometime now itself and so I have a couple of questions regarding the same, so it would be very helpful if you can provide me with those 1) So did you complete the 12 day CP course starting as a beginner? I am asking you this because I didn't fine any mention of this complete period as a whole in their site. Also did you have to anything before starting with the CP after completing the EP? 2) What was the cost of the total 12 day course, and did you receive any kind of certification at the end of it?

Hi Team, Me and my friends are coming to Pune on 3rd and 4th of April. We are highly interested in doing "paragliding" and we are staying in Karjat. It would be great for us if you could share with us the details like- timings, cost, other facilities etc. Also, please share a contact number so that we can directly call and clear all our minor doubts too. I hope I was clear in my question. Hope to hear soon !!
