Paragliding Notam – Kamshet – Valid Till June 2015
Our sincere thanks to the District Administration, Security Services , ATC Pune, ATC Mumbai & AFMLU Mumbai for their continued support and co-operation.
Our radius of operations has been increased this time to 10 Kms for our flying sites at kamshet , the ceilings have been modified due to increase in aerial activity such as Hot Air Baloons , Sea Planes and Helicopters 🙁
The plus side is we can now fly legally XC back to our base as long as we maintain the Altitude limitations
NOTAM – A0023/15 08:30 hrs – 15:00 hrs – Max Altitude 4000 Ft ASL (Min Safety Altitude 5000 Ft ASL for Helicopters)
NOTAM – A0024/15 15:01 hrs – 19:00 hrs – Max Altitude 5000 Ft ASL (Min Safety Altitude 6000 Ft ASL for Helicopters)
Area of Operation is to be restricted to 10Kms Radius of Takeoff of all our sites – so we now have a decent corridor and more airspace 🙂
The NOC granted requires the Operator who has been authorised at the location to take daily formal clearances from the ATC & Air Defence Clearances (ADC) from AFMLU – at commencement of operations and advise on close of session.
We request all pilots to make sure that the daily clearance for the appropriate sites are in place before they fly at Kamshet to avoid any issues.
- All Pilots who are soaring must have a Variometer so they can strictly observe the ceiling granted.
All Pilots must note that we will also be sharing our airspace with Hot Air Balloons & Sea Planes who we need to co ordinate with and will now be operating in the same flying area and similar altitudes. Apart from Helicopters who use VFR and will be flying regularly in the airspace above us with minimum safety altitude of 5000 Ft AMSL .
We must always remember we are legally flying in Restricted Airspace that belongs to the Indian Airforce (IAF). As responsible citizens and pilots we must adhere to all the restrictions imposed to fly safely. All Pilots must understand that we have to respect the limitations strictly as we are all responsible to keep the skies open for paragliders and violations could lead to us losing this privilege and are required to be reported to the respective authorities.

We wish you all a safe flying season 🙂
Peace, Bliss & Happy Landings
