Paraglider Full Kit (Canopy + Harness + Reserve Parachute) for Ground Handling

(Used items in flying condition)

As a beginner pilot after the initial basic training, I found out that the more I practice ground-handling/kiting the wing on the ground, the better I will get in my flying, which I confess is really true. Kiting is nothing but, balancing your inflated paraglider overhead while you are still standing on the ground. This way you will build-up a good muscle memory to instinctively react in keeping your paraglider stable overhead. It is very similar to how you have learned to balance a bicycle/bike and later on do the same without giving much of a thought....more/less

Who can buy: Normally you would consider buying this gear after proper paragliding training & instructions. But, you can also purchase the wing to do ground handling first (which means practising on the ground without flying), ofcourse with some experienced trainer besides you to guide you and later go in for a formal training to fly with. This way you will not only save some money on training but progress faster in this adventure & highly addictive sport.

Training: Once you own your Paragliding gear, You can check out some videos online with basic training on Ground Handling/kiting skills. Or request another certified paraglider pilot for guidance. Next, you need to get a formal training in theory as well as practical lessons on ground before you are finally fit to fly under instructor guidance.

FireBird SPIDER is a DHV class 1-2 certified paraglider/wing/canopy. Suitable for Beginner to Intermediate paragliding pilots. This model is of size large, which means that a pilot with all up weight (ie. own body weight + roughly 17 Kgs gear weight) totalling between 100 to 125 Kgs can ground handle and fly this wing. The wing was bought in the Jan-2011 (brand new) and only 20+ hrs of airtime is put on it and carries the Firebird warranty till Jan-2016. Ideally, any paraglider has a life span of 250+ hrs of airtime before it looses its airworthiness. The wing has been neatly patched at couple of small places and has absolutely no major tear or damage as such. All the lines are in excellent condition and absolutely un-stretched which means no extreme-manoeuvre has ever been performed with this wing and hence not been subjected to any sort of extreme stress/strain and has not been drenched in water too. Good care has been taken by the first and the only owner in repacking and storing the wing for personal use.

Reserve/parachute: FOR SALE for ₹ 25,000/-, if bought separately

Parachute require to be repacked every 6-12 months by a certified person, hence it is your responsibility to maintain the same.
