Fly your Dreams
"For once you have tasted flight you will  walk the earth with your eyes turned  skywards. For there you have been and  there you long to return."  - Leonardo da Vinci
Frequently Asked Questions Discovery Flight Find answers to all your questions and know what is expected of you once you are ready for the leap. Q. What is tandem joyride? Ans. Tandem flights utilize a two seater paraplane or microlight aircraft. You sit comfortably in a seat like a car, with the pilot in front, and the passenger behind. Q. How long/high does one fly? Ans. The flight lasts 10 minutes- takes you up at least 1000 feet and the experience is breathtaking.  If you are game, the pilot would glide down for a landing with the engine switched off and it all would seem  timeless like a dream with just the breeze singing! Q. How young/light do I have to be? Ans. Age, gender, weight is not a bar. Minors need permission from accompanying parents. Any one who can sit pillion on a mobike can take the ride. Q. Do I need to be fit? Ans. You don’t need to be fit or sporty but should not be suffering from certain ailments like heart disease, fits, epilepsy etc. (ladies should not be pregnant.) Q. How safe is it? Ans. Safety is our foremost consideration and we take a number of steps to ensure your safety. Besides mandatory safety and operational inspections by government agencies, we have many additional safety  measures in place which far exceed the minimum legal requirements.  Our pilots are not only well trained and experienced; they have been cleared by the Aviation Regulatory Authorities of the country and the State. Our pilots do not claim to have some dubious, fancy sounding foreign qualifications but they all have Govt. of India certification and Pilots licenses.  We use the latest state of the art equipment, which is certified by, again, DGCA, Govt. of India and  a licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (AME). We will not hesitate to  cancel a flight in case of any doubt about the fitness of the machine or weather. We have not had a single accident so far but risks should always be assumed. After all it is an adventure sport. Just to  emphasise,we are the only Aerosports club that has insurance cover for all its pilots and other participant Q. How much time do we need to set aside for the experience? Ans. On the way to Manali from Chandigarh, it will take only one hour to be set aside from you schedule  once you reach our site on the NH 21. After some formalities and ground training lesson, you are good to go. You need to arrive at our site, easily accessible on NH 21, at least 30 minutes before the time slot given to you Q. What happens if the wind is not right? Ans. Being powered aircraft, this is not a limitation, unless the weather is too bad or a storm is brewing.  In the rare event that you do not fly, we will reschedule your flight. Q. Is there any site etiquette to follow? Ans. You will be given a safety briefing. Follow all instructions of the Guide and Pilot.  Please don’t litter and take your plastic bags with you, be courteous to the farmers and avoid walking through planted fields. Q. Is there any special clothing and equipment required? Ans. No.. Just wear trousers and shirt or Tee with shoes or sandals with back strap. Ladies should avoid skirt and saree. The tandem seating is like the pillion on a motorbike. You will be provided with protective, wind proof clothing, eye protection (goggles) and helmet with intercom so that you can converse with the pilot. Please leave your camera behind on the ground. Selfie lovers – Beware. The smart phone may fly off in air. You may click pictures only on ground by informing the pilot. Q. What is the best time for joyride? Ans. We fly morning 1000 to 1700 everyday from 10 April to 10 Jun. No flying from 01 Jul to 30 Sep in  Monsoon season. The best season to fly is the winter season. Bright sun, clear blue skies and snow clad mountains around will sure lift your spirits. Q. What about cancellation? Ans.
