Upcoming Tours & Destinations

Pokhara – Sirkot – Bandipur

I fell in love with Nepal the first time I visited in 2002, so much so that I became a permanent resident just a few years later. Nepal satisfied my paragliding addiction for well over a decade while I lived there – safe to say, it’s where I really learnt to fly. Touring Nepal with Flyniall therefore gives a real local knowledge and feel that others simply cannot offer.

What’s included in the tour?

We choose 3 locations for our tour, each as impressive and diverse as the last.

Day 1, Kathmandu – You will be met at the airport on arrival in Kathmandu (1st Feb).
Days 2-6, Pokhara – The following morning, we take in the breath-taking views of the Himalayas on a 30 min flight to Pokhara, where we will be based for 5 days flying.

Days 7-10, Sirkot – We take our minibus 75km along the Siddhartha highway to Sirkot for 3 days flying at Babu Adventure HQ. Spectacular snowy peaked sunrise mixed with the morning sea of clouds at 800 m in the valley below: the perfect way to start the flying day ahead.

Day 11, Pokhara – Back to Pokhara for another day of flying.

Days 12-13, Bandipur – 2 days flying in Bandipur. One of Nepal’s most charming towns, Bandipur is a living museum of Newari culture: a beautifully preserved village crowning a lofty ridge. Experience a timeless sense of rural Nepal while soaring the ridge in the evening sun, watching sunset blast the 8000 m peaks from the comfort of your glider.

Day 14, Kathmandu – Back to Kathmandu to catch your flight home.

It’s not just the flying that is awesome, with the massive Annapurna range towering over 8000m as a backdrop. It’s not just the epic sunrise and sunsets on the mighty fishtail. The Nepalese people are the friendliest, steeped in heaps of culture and tradition… and don’t get me started on the food!

Dal Bhat is the national dish of Nepal, it gives you power 24 hr. Steamed rice and lentils or other pulses and it is typically accompanied by a vegetable curry (tarkari), a mixture of spicy vegetables (pickles) and greens (sak). It is eaten with papadums in a large metal tray.

Mo:Mo’s – scrummy bite-sized dumplings, vegetables or meat, steamed or fried.

Fear not, if a more western cuisine better suits your pallet, the Nepalese chefs have mastered the art of taking every dish from around the globe and making it 1000 times better at 1000 times lower prices.

A flying tour of Nepal will leave a lasting positive impression.

Annecy Tour​

Annecy is the undisputed European capital for paragliding. Abundant thermals and a classic valley breeze allow for some of Europe’s easiest XC flights.

Launching from Col de la Forclaz de Montmin (1250 m), fly over the Dents de Lanfon and La Tournette limestone walls before crossing the turquoise alpine Lac d’Annecy. Glide for miles over the Bauges and Aravis crests – this place seems to have been designed for long distance paragliding.

Bir Billing

Bir Billing is nestled amongst the impressive Dhauladhar ranges in the Kangra valley of Himachal Pradesh in India.

A world renowned XC site with a mighty Himalayan backdrop, the front rises to 11,800 ft (3600 m). 100 km flights are attainable by heading west towards Dharamsala, then riding the afternoon westerly breeze back to Bir. Retrieves are easy and adventurous. A unique cultural flying adventure.

Safety Training (S.I.V): Oludeniz, Turkey

Incidents in flight can occur when we allow adverse factors to accumulate: bad decision making by the pilot, winds too strong or off the hill, punchy thermals, flying the wrong wing for our level… we could go on.

Regardless of the underlying factors, when the glider departs from normal flight, we are more likely to react correctly and stay safe if we have a good understanding of what is actually happening – sometimes, it’s as simple as not overreacting.

We have devised a Safety Training course with you in mind, to have you flying in a relaxed, confident manner, not so out of our depth that stresses go unchecked and we lose the feel for our glider.

Aims of the course
 – Understand the handling characteristics of your wing.
 – Train a more active, more confident and controlled flying style.
 – Get rapid descent techniques dialled.
 – Avoid, detect and control collapses.
 – Understand pitch, roll, coordination & energy in turns.
 – Avoid and understand spins

Minimum requirements: you must be C.P-rated with at least 20 hours logged since completing your C.P.

Who is it for?

If you understand the benefits of good ground handling and wing control, or are interested in thermal flying but aware of the inherent dangers that this entails, this course is for you. Confident and nervous pilots alike, don’t find excuses not to sign up – we will accommodate and bring you on to be jedi of the sky in a safe and comfortable environment.

Progressive philosophy

At Flyniall, we provide a tailored S.I.V experience: close, connected and personal. This personal touch progresses your safety as a pilot without knocking your confidence, as you advance through the course at the pace that is right for you. This does mean that everyone comes out of our Safety Training courses having completed a different number of exercises – if you are simply looking to quickly tick all the boxes to impress your mates, I can put you in contact with another S.I.V Instructor.
