Safety Concerns during Paragliding

Paragliding is an extreme sport and it is really fun to have feeling of joy while flying through the sky. It is a very recreational and adventurous sport and enjoyed by millions around the world. At the same time, Paragliding ( מצנחי רחיפה ) is a high risk sport and injuries can happen at any time while taking flight. Injuries are mainly to the lower limb like twisted ankles suffered while take-off or landing. More than 90% of these injuries happen to beginners during their first 10-15 flights, the majority of these injuries being to the lower leg. Careful Paragliders always look for the safety measures, analyze the conditions and adopt proper paragliding techniques to ensure their safety. The safety much depend on the skills and sense of the pilot, his technique, equipment used, ability to analyze conditions and planning according to that. The good pilot would not paraglide at sites that offer an unreasonable challenge to his or her flying skills. The safe pilot will only fly on days in which the weather is conducive to safe flight. Turbulence in all its forms is very dangerous for a flying Paraglider wing. Paragliders are the slowest of the gliders and combination of good training, techniques, judgment, planning and good equipment
offers to pilot high levels of safety.
