How dangerous is hang gliding?


 

Statistically hang gliding is less dangerous than driving your car, skydiving, SCUBA diving, surfing and paragliding. But this does not mean that hang gliding is not risky. Hang gliding can be unforgiving for carelessness so there is no place for cow-boys in the sport (Well, they don't last long anyway), Special care is taken during training to teach proper AIRMANSHIP. This means the ability to always enjoy flying with safety taking a high priority. The truth is that the danger aspect is highly overrated. With proper training the sport can be practiced just like any other sport but offering many times more the thrill and sense of achievement.
