Paragliding Course in Kamshet, SIV Course - Temple Pilots


Coming from a fighter flying background I know how important it is, as a pilot, to know what your glider can & can’t do, how far you can push it and how to recognise & recover from situations you may encounter during your XC & Acro flying. This is the course that will truly make you comfortable under your wing and give you real confidence in your ability to handle your glider well – your First Solo Flight.

Why you should do SIV a Course?

If you’ve recently acquired a new paragliding wing or are transitioning to a higher-performance wing, participating in an SIV course can be invaluable for familiarizing yourself with the wing’s characteristics, handling nuances, and safety features. SIV training with a new wing allows you to gain confidence, refine your piloting skills, and develop a deeper understanding of the wing’s behavior in various flight scenarios. Consider scheduling an SIV course shortly after acquiring a new wing to optimize your flying experience and ensure a smooth transition to flying with confidence and proficiency.


SIV courses are valuable for enhancing piloting skills, mastering maneuvers, and improving safety awareness. If you’re actively working on advancing your skills or refining specific maneuvers, participating in SIV courses more frequently may be beneficial.

Beginners may benefit from participating in SIV courses less frequently initially, focusing on building a solid foundation of basic skills before progressing to more advanced maneuvers. Intermediate to advanced pilots who have already completed SIV training may choose to participate in refresher courses periodically to maintain and enhance their skills.

SIV courses involve practicing maneuvers that simulate potentially dangerous situations, such as stalls and collapses. It’s essential to strike a balance between gaining proficiency in handling these maneuvers and mitigating the associated risks. Participating in SIV courses too frequently without adequate skill development or supervision may increase the risk of accidents

Consider your individual goals and aspirations as a paraglider pilot. If you’re pursuing aerobatics or competition flying, participating in SIV courses more frequently may be necessary to stay competitive and maintain proficiency. On the other hand, if you primarily fly for recreational purposes, participating in SIV courses on an occasional basis may suffice.
