Paragliding in Pakistan

Entries may be a little edited for clarity or brevity. The views expressed do not necessarily reflect those of PakPositive.

Paragliding is a very young Aerial Flying sport. In Pakistan a very few people know about it. But as the time is passing, it is growing day by day. Pakistan Association of Free Flying ( contributing its major role in promoting this energetic sport. Some local clubs are also playing a role in promoting this sport. Pakistan is a heaven for paraglider pilots of the world. They come to Pakistan to fly in the northern areas in the huge mountain ranges. In Pakistan, very rare people know about two Pakistani Paraglider Pilots Mr Sajjad Shah & Mr Jabbar Bhatti who did Paragliding in 1986 & 1987, when this sport was born. I’ve a wish that this sport should be promoted under the government supervision and tourism ministry and should be promoted in Pakistan.
