Powered Paragliding is one of the safest ways to get in the sky.
When properly used, in correct aerological conditions, Powered Paragliding is extremely safe.
You do not have to worry if the engine fails: you just have to find a secure landing area and descent to it slowly !
If you insist on flying in unsuitable weather conditions you must be an experienced pilot and accept the risk: stall close to the ground or abnormal contact with the ground can cause serious injury !
The PPG is as safe as you are !
The piloting of a paragliding is of a very simple principle.
Two handles (brakes) linked at the trailing edge of the wing by suspentes allow the control of the glider.
You just have to pull the right brake to go to the right, the left brake to turn to the left, to increase the power to go up and to reduce it to come down...
Finally, the landing is gently made by pulling both brakes at the same time.
