Flybubble Paragliding Safety Statement & Warning Of Risks
Paragliding is a form of aviation with all of the inherent and potential dangers that are involved in aviation. No form of aviation is without risk, and injuries and death does occur in paragliding, even to trained pilots using proper equipment. Whilst Flybubble Paragliding endeavours to minimise this risk as far as is reasonably practicable, it cannot be eliminated altogether.
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. If you are not prepared to take this risk, you shouldn’t participate in paragliding – or participate in any ‘extreme sport’, ‘adventurous’ or ‘dangerous’ activity, or flying / aviation activities.
Of course we will always try to minimise this risk, and ensure that your flying is as safe as possible within reason, but we can never promise to remove this element of risk completely. This is simply not possible; anyone who thinks otherwise is mistaken.
No one should participate in paragliding who does not recognise and wish to personally assume the associated risks.
Flybubble Paragliding is a British Hang gliding and Paragliding Association (BHPA) approved paragliding school run by highly experienced BHPA Chief Flying Instructor (CFI) and winning British team pilot Carlo Borsattino and the Flybubble team.
