What about safety and risks?

Paragliding is an adventure sport and like any other adventure sport has inherent risk associated with it. We have years of experience in training which helps us eliminate and reduce the risk. Our group size is small and the site is not congested with pilots. Being a coastal area winds too are more predictable. All these factors help us maintain a good safety record. We are equipped with first aid facilities and a stretcher. In any unfortunate incident good hospitals are within two kilometers from the site. We have standard procedures in place to deal with any kind of emergencies.

What are other costs?

Generally people from Mumbai return back home in the evening and come back the next morning. So your traveling cost to Virar and what you spend on your own food is the only other expense. Traveling to the site is in Club vehicles.

However all pilots are expected to maintain a logbook to show their experience level. In absence of national policies, many states in India have come up with safety guidelines to reduce risk factors and control accidents.
