TemplePilots Paragliding Kamshet - Team

Our Team

Our team is our strength. It’s young, energetic and passionate. Young not only in age but in their attitude to keep learning. Energetic not only in strength but also in their desire to be the best. Passionate because they seem to have found their calling, they love it. They are true sports people – patient yet know when to give a push, kind but yet know when to be firm, lots of fun but super serious at work…from playing cricket at the landing sites after flying or taking care of elderly flying enthusiasts to fulfil their lifelong dream to fly – they are up for any challenge with honest hearts and a smile that shines through all fear & doubt.

He is also among the first in Indian to get their FAI (Federation Aeronotique Internationale) Paragliding Sporting License and also a Paramotoring Pilot and Instructor from Sky school, UK.

Anita

The travelling and adventure bug caught her rather early so the longing to fly the open skies came pretty naturally. She was also the only woman pilot and Indian to fly at the Third International Flying Festival at Vagamon, Kerala. Anita is the powerhouse behind the success of Temple Pilots as the top School and Club in the South East Asia region. Her strengths are her communication skills, customer relations and motivating people to fly, to discover themselves through this fascinating and liberating sport.

It is our honour to introduce the newest member of our flying family… Sachin Pathare. Sachin was always meant to be a part of the team. This was evident when he came to learn paragliding four years back. After flying and being with Temple Pilots, he felt he had found a place he wanted to belong.

Jitendra (Jets)

APPI ASST. INSTRUCTOR | TANDEM PILOT (License no. 12148)
Jitu as we fondly call him is the power punch of the team. He is one of our star performers bursting with energy & ideas. Do not be fooled by his lean frame, young age & boyish looks. He is a no nonsense guy, who is ready to take on any challenges the world of paragliding can offer him.

Ganesh

Ganesh is a man of few words but he is commitment personified. A gifted and natural solo pilot & a thoroughbred Instructor, extremely dedicated to his craft. He is quiet and unassuming but with a keen eye to observe & give precise feedback with a generous use of the ‘Okay’!

Vikas

ASST. INSTRUCTOR | TANDEM PILOT (License no. 12152)
Young and handsome, this promising pilot is maturing into a fine Instructor. He has a very friendly personality & connects to the student pilots with ease. You will usually find him smiling mischievously & up to some prank with one of his teammates. He is stylish, charming and a very kind soul.
