Woke up bit early in the morning and drove down to Hadapsar. There is a Gliding center at Hadapsar where you can learn Gliding and also become licensed Glider Pilot. If you don’t have time for learning then drop down to this place on any Sunday to take a ride.
As this place is an undertaking of Civil Aviation Department, Government of India; Joy rides on Sunday are at subsidized rate of Rs. 187 only. All gliders are in very good conditions and all the glider pilots are very experienced; my pilot had an experience of 51 years.
It was indeed great experience to fly in a two seat glider; a small aircraft without engine. For no doubt Gliding center becomes the must visit place in Pune and a must visit place again for me.
