Yes, You Can Paraglide Right Here In Chennai And We Have All The Deets
What Makes It Awesome
Chennai Peeps, you can now paraglide above the Bay of Bengal on our very own ECR every weekend. Thanks to Adventure Aero Sports Association, you can now indulge in paramotoring which is almost like paragliding but better cause you don’t have to launch off a hill, you’re just propelled into the air with the help of an engine.
And the best part, you don’t even have to shell out a bomb! The larger your group is, the less you pay for your ride, more like glide (prices are mentioned below). So every Saturday and Sunday, head over to ECR and spot the paramotorists doing their thing near the Crocodile Bank. The beauty of paramotoring is the sheer openness and rawness that you experience while flying cause other than a tiny spot for you to sit, the craft has nothing, not even a door! It’s just going to be you, the sky, the wind and the ocean below you. You enjoy many more spins, thrills and unbelievable views on this ride than while paragliding.
Once you’re briefed by the pilot, you are strapped in the trike in front of your pilot and with a short burst, you can see the ground falling away from your feet. It’s almost like riding a motorcycle but high in the sky, very, very high. You can book your slots by registering online on their website here. They have four different packages, a Silver package entails a ride for a maximum of five people at INR 2,500 per head, a Gold package is a ride for groups of above five people but below 10 people at INR 2,000 per head. The other two packages are the Diamond package for groups consisting of 16-49 people where the ride costs INR 1,500 per head and the Platinum Package for groups of above 50 people where a ride costs just INR 1,000 per head. So the larger your group, the cheaper your ride!
On-spot registrations are taken only if any online registrations are canceled so it’s always better to book online. Each ride lasts for about 10-15 mins and you require no gear as everything is provided by the team on site. They equip you with a safety helmet, a life jacket, a noise reduction headset and even attach a GoPro to a selfie stick which you can take with you on your ride to record your experience. So book yourself the experience of a lifetime with Adventure Aero Sports Association right away.
