Safety Statement

Paragliding is classed as an ‘extreme sport’, and an ‘adventurous’ and ‘dangerous’ activity, which carries with it – like all adventure sports and flying/aviation activities – an associated risk of possible serious injury or even death. As a form of aviation, paragliding carries all inherent and potential dangers that are involved with aviation, and injuries and death do occur, including to trained pilots using proper equipment.

If you are not prepared to take these associated risks, then you should not participate in paragliding – or in any ‘extreme sport’, ‘adventurous’ or ‘dangerous’ activity, or flying/aviation activities. No one should participate in paragliding who does not recognize and wish to personally assume these associated risks.

Whilst Fly+5 endeavors to minimize these risk as far as is reasonably practicable, they cannot be eliminated altogether. 100% risk-free paragliding is not possible and thinking otherwise is to be mistaken.

Fly+5 is run by highly experienced USHPA and APPI Instructors and Pilots with decades of experience between them. Fly+5’s team will always endeavor to do everything they can within reason to ensure that you get the best and safest paragliding tuition and tandem paraglider flights as humanly possible. Your safety is always our highest priority.

We aim to provide the highest standard of training whilst ensuring that risks to your safety are kept as low as reasonable practicable. To achieve this we:

  • Only provide Brands known for the highest safety and quality standards.
  • Carry out regular risk assessments of all training sites and weather conditions whilst we are using the sites for training.
  • Follow USHPA’s training syllabus and guidance for instructors.
