Paramotoring accidents happen more frequently when a pilot holidays abroad, as they are less familiar with the landscape and the local climate.
Deaths caused by Paramotoring are exceptional. When they do happen, however, it is often because the pilot was attempting to push him or herself past their limits or due to inexperience. A fatal accident is nearly impossible if you are an experienced Paramotorer and use common sense.
Because your legs and feet are not protected when Paramotoring, tricky landings or rough winds blowing you off course can result in broken bones, sprains and strains.
Bruises and cuts to other body parts might also occur in these circumstances. Injuries that may occur when Paramotoring.
Regarding technological equipment, pilots require a Variometer, a device that indicates the climb or drop rate, the altitude, a radio, and possibly a GPS.
It is also essential that the appropriate clothing is worn. Multiple layers of light clothing are better than a couple of layers of thick clothes.
Proper footwear is essential as well but is easily overlooked.
Pilots are advised to wear trainers or hiking boots with ankle support, offering more protection during the landing.
