Beaucoup de parapentistes ne lancent pas leurs secours et les chanceux sont sauvés par des arbres. Je dirais que les chances que l'accident soit mortel sont de 20% lorsque le secours n'est pas lancé. Quelles sont les statistiques officielles?
Je suggère, dans mon site internet, de toujours voler assez haut pour avoir le temps de recouvrir d'une fermeture ou décrochage. En vol bas, les parapentistes devraient être prêts à lancer leurs secours.

Many paragliders do not throw their reserve and the lucky ones are saved by trees. I would say the chances of the accident being lethal are 20% when the reserve is not thrown. What are the official statistics?
I suggest, in my website, to always fly high enough to have time to recover from a collapse or a stall. In low flight, paragliders should be ready to throw their reserve.
