My Journey Into Helico


Your rating: None Average: 5 (5 votes)

October 2021, I travelled to Bilaspur, Himachal Pradesh (India) to learn Helico of my own. This location provides a complete ecosystem to practice acro-paragliding.

Initially I spend a month revising and mastering basic SIV maneuvers. In the second month I was able to do Helico but it was highly unstable with not more than 2-3 rotations. Sometimes, I was lucky to get more rotations. During this time, I watched a lot of YouTube videos, and videos from JustAcro. I also subscribed to Master Acro series. Finally after four months of consistent practice and overcoming lots of failures, I was able to do Helico confidently and with lots of rotations.

I hope you will enjoy this video, while I look to continue with my further Acro journey!!!

Safe Maneuvering and Safe Landings.

Thanks! Unfortunately, porosity of my this wing dropped from 'excellent' to 'heavily used' over last one year (one season used). I am now left with a choice to invest in same wing or move to an acro wing. Cheers!
