Frequently Asked Questions




Q: WHAT IS PARAGLIDING?

Paragliding is an amazing adventure that can fulfill one’s dream to fly in the air like a bird. To fly a paraglider one needs hard practice and a good amount of time and knowledge of Paragliding to perform this adventurous skill. Paragliding becomes popular in India, especially in Bir Billing which is a very beautiful and charismatic destination, located in the west of Distt. Kangra of Himachal Pradesh, India. This place was first discovered by a foreign tourist. The Billing small grassland, situated on the top of the mountain which is nearly 14 KM away from the village Bir. Billing is nearly 2400 meters high from the sea level. Down the hill of Billing, there is a beautiful Bir Valley comprising several small other villages with many big and small water streams, Fields, and dense green forest of pine and other trees. This place has favorable conditions for aero-sports and it was selected for Hang gliding events by the state in the ’90s. After that, few small and big events for Paragliding were also held here and it has been gaining a lot of reputation for the past few years. On Oct 2015, Paragliding World Cup India 2015 was held for the very first time here in Bir Billing


Q: CAN I FLY ALONE?

To fly just need to do a training course, Solo Paragliding takes these courses if you are interested, but if what you want is just to live the experience of flying, tandem flights give you the option of flying with an instructor. The instructor will handle the para-glider while you enjoy the flight.


Q: TYPES OF GLIDING?

Solo Paragliding: In Solo Paragliding, only one man is able to fly the para-glider in the air. First, he needs to go to the edge of a high sloppy hill and gear himself with all the required equipment for flying. Then he needs to check the wind conditions and if the conditions are favorable he simply needs to run towards the end of the sloppy hill. For Solo Paragliding, one needs to be fully trained in Paragliding. A well-experienced pilot can be able to fly the para-glider.

Tandem Paragliding: Tandem Paragliding for those who are inexperienced and basically do not know how to fly with a para-glider. This kind of Paragliding is for those who use to come to Bir Billing in a short time and want to enjoy the flying thrills using Tandem Paragliding. In Tandem Paragliding, there are 2 persons flying with a single para-glider. For Tandem Paragliding one must be a well-trained pilot among them. The pilot usually sits behind the other person and he is the one who is fully responsible for flying the para-glider during the flight time. The other person simply enjoys the adventure of flying.


Q: SKILLS REQUIRED?

For a tandem flight, you do not need any prior knowledge or special skills, the only thing is to wear comfortable shoes and dress that allow you to make a short flying trip.


Q: HOW LONG IS FLIGHT?

The flight duration depends on the height of the takeoff and the existence of thermals and/or dynamic, so it is impossible to know how long the flight before seeing these conditions. Paragliding from the edge of the Billing take-off point, about 2400 meters above sea level, enabling us to secure a 10-minute flight, even if there are currents that allow us to stay longer. These 10 minutes is a minimum time, if conditions permit, the flight will last longer.


Q: HOW SAFE IS GLIDING?

Paragliding is an adventure sport, and as such has some level of risk we try to minimize using approved equipment, safety (helmet, suitable footwear, ..), and an emergency para-glider we have available in case any incident occurs. We also believe that the best way to prevent accidents is to fly only under favorable weather conditions and experienced pilots. Tandem Paragliding flights operate only if conditions are completely favorable, without taking risks for the client nor for the pilot, and to date, none of our drivers needed to use the emergency para-glider.
