    Abstract

    Aerosports makes it possible for the common man to defy gravity and get off the ground . The lure of aero-sports is closely linked with the innate desire of every person to get airborne and fly like birds . The desire to be a pilot and fly an aircraft is a childhood dream for most children but very few in fact get to that and take up aviation as a profession . The scenario has changed over last few decades and participation in aero-sports and hobby flying through various means has become a reality within the grasp of quite a few people : though the number is still small but growing . In India too, the awareness is growing and with improved economic conditions and a significant population of well-to-do youth, the opportunities for taking up aero-sports is promising .
