Courses

PG-Gurukal prides itself on high quality teaching to make you the best pilot possible.

The Courses available at PG-Gurukul:

Integrated p1 to thermaling course:

This course is most in line with Gurukul philosophy. a 15 day course where we both put in our best and try to learn as much as possible in 15 days.. most people achieve level up to fair thermal soaring skills in this period. what you getting approximately is p1,2,3 and 4 days of thermal soaring training. Doing all together means reflexes form well enough to stay after next off season and longer stay also means better relation between teacher and student and better understanding of methods. This is my most recommended way for learning paragliding. On PAI rating levels this couse will most likely take u past Novice pilot level and very close to pilot level.
