Common Injuries

In general, the safety of the sport is directly influenced by the skill and sense of the Pilot. A safe Pilot will not fly at sites that are too challenging for his / her skills and will not fly on days when the weather is turbulent.

Paragliding accidents occur more frequently when a Pilot is in a foreign country because they are less familiar with the area and climate.

The great exposure of the Pilot's legs and feet to the ground during landing have the potential to result in strains, fractures and broken bones, if landings are misjudged or impacted due to adverse weather conditions.

Fatalities in Paragliding are rare, but when they do happen it is often because the Pilot was attempting to push themselves past their limits for a more exciting flight or other goal, or due to inexperience when a Pilot was doing something that is strictly warned against.

Sports Equipment Insurance for Paragliding

Paragliding is incredibly accessible with the lightweight flying equipment fitting into a large rucksack; flights can take place in a range of different locations around the world.

Paragliding Equipment is often very expensive and undergoes a great deal of stress and strain with each flight.

We have partnered with a HB Insurance who can provide cover for your Abseiling Equipment, in transit, storage and whilst being used.
