How do I start a Career in Paragliding?

I think Paragliding is a great Career option. For me understanding Why I want to choose a Career in Paragliding is phenomenally more important than figuring out How to get into Paragliding. I was Googling about a Career in Paragliding and was lucky to find:

Shubhang S Raturi started by explaining Paragliding as: "Paragliding is the recreational and competitive adventure sport of flying paragliders. As a paragliding instructor, one trains individuals in the skill of paragliding" I watched the full video and I absolutely loved it.

It was a welcome change to see the video touch upon Education as theoretical knowledge needed to excel at Paragliding, and not merely as Qualifications needed to enter Paragliding. Shubhang S Raturi touches upon these in the Education section of the Video:

  • Physical Fitness
  • Mental Agility
Positives of any Career motivate one to work hard for the same.
Shubhang S Raturi believes that the following are some of the Positives of a Career in Paragliding:

Challenges are the other side of Positives and this Career is no exception.

  • Lack of Profitable Locations
