309 AirBorne is based in a quaint old Haveli of the proud Saklani chieftains of Garhwal, located in the Song River Valley barely 15 Kms. From Dehradun which in turn is connected to New Delhi by a short 6 hours drive or by overnight trains.

A number of good flying sites are walking/driving distance from the base:

Ashram                                   :               Approx. 01 Kilometer.

Dwara Top                              :               Approx. 2.5 Kilometers.

Mussoorie (Bhatta)              :               Approx. 40 Kilometers.

Mussoorie (Jhari Pani)         :               Approx. 45 Kilometers.

Narendranagar                      :               Approx. 48 Kilometers.

Dhanaulti Ridge                    :               Approx. 63 Kilometers.

Accommodation, Meals & Stuff to do:

Accommodation is very basic and the food is delicious with authentic village flavours. The entire ambience is aimed at providing you with an authentic outdoors holiday experience.

 

When the atmosphere is strictly academic with only "Fly Boys/Girls" in house, the pilots can stay in the Haveli.

 

However, should the pilots be accompanied by wives / husbands / girlfriends / boyfriends / lovers / mistresses / children or any other such appendages which might render the main building inadequate, we move the course to the tented accommodation within the estate.

 

For Non-Pilots or on No-Fly days there are a host of activities to choose from:

- Tandem Flights (for non-pilots and only on Flyable days)

- Day return Rafting trips

- Camping

- Fishing

- Rappelling

- Valley crossing

- Treks

- Nature walks

...or plain lazing around.
