Aravali aviation club lands in green trouble

Source: Hindustan Times, New Delhi, Date: December , 2009

The good news is Gurgaon has got its first aero aviation club offering fantasy flights (motorised paragliding) with paramotor trikes at the Aravali Hills. The flip side is it may have come at the cost of greenery.The hovering sound of the flying paramotor trikes in Raiseena village near Anasal's Aravali Retreat, a hub of farmhouses, has allegedly hit the peace and tranquility of the ecologically fragile hills.In addition to the noise and air pollution, more than 4,000 plants and trees have been sacrificed for making a runway on about four acres of land near the hills for flying these machines that use hi-octane fuel as patrol.
