Common Injuries

Paramotoring accidents happen more frequently whenever a pilot is vacationing 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. If you are an experienced Paramotorer and you use common sense, a fatal accident is nearly impossible.

Because your legs and feet are not protected when Paramotoring, difficult landings or rough winds blowing you off course can result in broken bones, sprains and strains.

Bruises and cuts to other parts of the body might also occur in these circumstances. Injuries that may occur when Paramotoring.

Paramotoring Equipment

In terms of technological equipment, Paramotoring pilots require a variometer, a device that indicates the climb or drop rate, as well as the altitude; a radio; and possibly a GPS system.

It is also important that the appropriate clothing is worn. Multiple layers of light clothing are better than a couple of layers of thick clothes.

The right footwear is essential as well, but is easily overlooked.

Pilots are advised to wear trainers or hiking boots with ankle support, which will offer more protection during the landing.
