The Truth about Paragliding and Hang Gliding Incidents
Ian Stuart, one of our London based consultants, used the BHPA’s incident database to reveal some interesting insights.
Free flying is exhilarating but it comes with a health warning. We recently published our analysis of incidents in “Skywings” – the membership magazine for the British Hang Gliding & Paragliding Association (BHPA). We looked at some hypotheses to see if we could spot any correlations. The findings surprised Altis’ resident paragliding pilot!
Young, experienced pilots flying in good weather are at a high risk of having an incident – or so it may seem. To read Ian’s article outlining how he came to this conclusion click here.
Within a day of publishing we received several positive comments supporting our recommendations.
