125 differently-abled participants took the seven-minute paramotor joyride at the Golf venue in Forest Hill Golf Club, Chandigarh. At this first paramotoring event for the differently-abled, the participants have made fond memories, and each of them now has one more exciting story to share for their lifetime.
Among the participants, there were some who had no movement in the body neck-down and were just as enthusiastic about their joyride experience. Udaan 2017 was organized to provide an opportunity to the differently-abled, to prove that they are capable of facing challenges, just like everyone else.
This event of paramotoring for differently-abled was conducted by Flyboy Aviation, in collaboration with Chandigarh Spinal Rehab and Adventures Beyond Barriers, sponsored by JK Cement Ltd. The chief guest of the occasion, Commodore Ranbir Talwar of the Indian Head Injury Foundation, New Delhi, has given wheel-chairs to those who needed them, as this year’s Diwali gift.
Watch these first-hand experiences of the participants, paramotoring at Udaan, the first attempt at paramotoring for differently-abled.
