Ultra Light Gliding Trip is one of the most popular adventure activities in Pokhara. We have daily departure for this trip and the trip will be organized from the Pokhara airport. We provide transfer services from/to hotel on request.
An Ultralight (Microlight) is a two-seated small aircraft with powered engine designed to carry no more than two people (pilot and passenger), with a maximum fuel capacity of 90 liters and a total weight of less than 600kg, including fuel and persons onboard. It has an imposed speed limit of less than 130 km/hr. Average speeds are about 80 km/hr.
People fly Ultralights because it is FUN! Ultralight flights are considered as recreational aviation flight for people who enjoy adventures. Nepal is blessed with one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world with 8000 m high snow capped mountains, green hills, serene rivers and lakes. You can film and take clear photos of nature from the bird’s eye view while flying an Ultralight. Leave your woes behind, soar to the heights, bathe in the clouds, reach out for the mountains and kiss the azure sky. It’s a life time experience.
You don’t need to have any specific knowledge in order to have an Ultralight flight with us, but here is a general overview. Before, flying we will go over what you need to do, and you must follow all pilot and crewmembers instuctions. Your pilot will make the flight as smooth as possible but somethims you may encounter minor turbulence during your flight, which is entirely normal.
The reality of Ultraligh flighs is that sometimes launches (starts) have to be aborted due to wheather conditions, airport restricions, etc. If pilot does not feel that it is safe to fly, he/she may abort the start as well. In this case you will be instucted by the pilot or any crewmember of Avia Club Nepal about how to proceed further: wait, stop, change the time of your flight, or cancel it. Your pilot will do his/her best to make your flight a success. Yet, if during the flight, due to some circumstances such as weather changes or the flight control tower instructions, etc. your pilot may slightly change the flight rout.
Wear footwear that provides a good support as possible. During the autumn (fall) and winter it is a good idea to have a sweater and a light jacket with you.
You may bring your digital camera, camcorder for filming, yet secure it with a strap if you are planning to fly an open cabin aircraft. As there is weight limit in Ultralights, any extra luggage is not allowed onboard: however, your bags and belongings can safely be left with our ground hosts in the locker box while you are taking your flight.
