In the month of July 2018, 21-year-old Sunith Rao embarked on a 2 month long flying trip to Italy, Spain & Macedonia his father’s blessings and mine. In the Gin Wide Open, he came away with the first place in the leisure class making the Fly Nirvana family proud and his hosts Nicky Moss and Geordie Pensalo of FlyAger very happy.
Sunith had a great start in the comp as he finished with a joint first with Gin team pilots Richard Bungay and Yuki Sato on the practice task , but …..
My first taste of free flight came in the form of Bunny Hops. A series of low short duration flights. launching forward my feet left the ground for the first time and i couldn’t believe how easy and exhilarating it was to fly all on my own.
An absolute pleasure and blessing to spend a unforgettable week with family and friends. A very unique place in a beautiful corner of India.
Sunsets, Paragliding with Nirvana Adventures, music, yoga, lake swimming, delicious food, comfortable accommodation and relaxed evening gatherings. Thank you all. I am so grateful I had this wonderful week with you al
We had a great turnout on the weekend with students coming in from Kerala, Bangalore, Kodikanal, Pune, Gujarat and Mumbai. Being summer the winds are strong in the early afternoon and the paragliding training and the solo flying starts later in the evening.The days are spent chilling in a cosy nook within the guesthouse, or the garden or by the lake with a bunch of fellow students and pilots. Students pilots and guests enjoyed an idyllic weekend exploring the garden, the lake and the paragliding site by day and joining the gathering on the roof for dinner and interesting conversations.
Holi at Native Place and Nirvana Adventures was a treat – lots of colour , excitement, running chasing, splashing and squealing and hosing down . The weather was another story all together. The winds turned east n the morning and we scrambled back to Shinde tekdi with the Elementary Pilot Paragliding students where things went on quite well.
