Managing risk in paragliding :: M. Bellemin


Flying a paraglider is first of all about analysis and decision.
Going right or left? Go into transition? Landing... Your enjoyment and safety depend on the right decisions, but decisions are not limited to the flight phase.
To take off or not? Which site to choose today? Which glider, which harness, which rescue to buy? Which progression? A SIV course or a cross country course? Distance flying or hike-flying ?

Whatever your level of progress, this book 'Managing Risk in Paragliding' aims to help you acquire the skills to make the right decisions and minimise your exposure to threats, while having maximum fun under your wing.
