Safety Program Explained

Safety is the number one consideration in all branches of aviation and the sport of hang gliding and paragliding is no exception.

Every pilot is encouraged to take responsibility for their actions during free flight. These actions will affect not only you, the pilot, but also your fellow pilots across Canada, the general public, and the reputation of the sport as a whole.

By making safety an integral part of all your decision making during free flight you will make this a long-term passion and not a short lived infatuation.

HPAC has developed numerous safety resources to help you in developing this most important skill of a free flyer: safety-conscious decision making.

Every pilot’s goal is to enjoy the sport and go home safe and happy at the end of the day.
