Brief History of Paragliding in Pakistan

Paragliding was developed in Europe during early 1980s and was open to all  as a sport. French mountaineers were probably the first to fly Para gliders in air of Pakistan during 1985 in Northern Areas. Later Many foreigners flew among the highest mountain on earth. In September 2004 Markus Mayer – German and some of his friends enjoyed their flights near the Fairy Meadows, Nanga Parbat base of Riakot. Hamish Robertson – Australian mountaineer also flew from Gondogoro Pass to Hushe Valley in 2005 summer.

Pakistani Paragliders emerged on the scene in 1990's when a Pakistani enthusiasts Sajjad Hussain Shah and Colonel Doctor Abdul Jabbar Bhatti, brought this sport to Pakistan and demonstrated their skills to Pakistanis through Pakistan Television. Later on many other people got interested and learnt this sport and flown in the airs of Pakistan like, Belal Ahmed, Abbas Hussain, Major Hamid and instructors Mr Akhtar & Mr Saleem who rendered their services to train and enable more and more people from civil community. In 2010 Brigadier Ajab Khan promoted this sport as part of other adventure sports in Swat valley.

Later in 2011 this sport was taken to its heights by Brigadier Saqib Rasheed Ahmad Khan ensuring country wide proliferation of this sport as project manager of "Spirit of Swat Program" This was the period when maximum publicity of this sport was done through  national media setting a precedence for all major festivals to incorporate the paragliding demonstrations and shows as part of the festivals. 

Paragliding besides being very exciting sport in safe environments can become very challenging and life-threatening sport for beginners in Karakoram, Hindukush and Himalayan Mountains only recommended for the professionals. Because weather is very different and unpredictable with unusualy strong conditions even for good pilots.
