Meet India’s first blind paragliding pilot trained by Temple Pilots Paragliding
FLIGHT OF A HERO – India’s first Visually impaired paragliding pilot
Divyanshu met Avi and Anita from Temple Pilots at their home a month back with a simple request – he wanted to fly. The only challenge was that he was blind. Avi said ‘yes’ with all his heart. Now, the task of the mind began.
After 5 days of training, ground school, one on one intense session with Avi Malik (CFI Templepilots) & the team, many hours at the flying site – we have a hero.
We made history
Divyanshu completed his historic successful Solo flight yesterday and became India’s first blind paragliding pilot. It is no less a feat than the first climber on Mt. Everest. He is the first one to do this in India. It is an achievement we are cherishing deep in our hearts. Never to forget… He has made us all fly, very high.
