Paragliding, a globally celebrated air sport, boasts a strong safety record. The primary factor contributing to its safety is the wind. It’s crucial to monitor weather conditions and avoid flying when the wind exceeds 20 knots. Equally important is ensuring the equipment is up-to-date and has passed international safety standards like LTF and DHV. Partnering with a seasoned and professional pilot is essential. When these factors align, you’re set for a secure and delightful experience.
