It might well be that the very best and safest chance for you to fly again is in perfectly suited conditions in a PG.

i am shocked that you would say Words such as "safest" . Or that it would be the Very best and safest chance for me to fly again. I mean you are talking about a Paraglider after all. Can you say : "A-symmetrical collapse? I believe that the word Safe and Paragliding should never be spoken in the same sentence together. Paragliding being described as a Safe Form of Flying, John are you nuts?
Chris, I completely agree with you!
All one need do to convince one's self of PG instability at maiming heights is to read that one article in the latest ushPa-issued rag. A female pilot severely wrecked her body after falling from 20 ft or so after her canopy reacted negatively to a small gust.
I didn't read the whole article, and merely scanned through the rag in about three minutes. (useless rag
Anyway, it's an article that well-highlights the bad stuff that can happen to a human flying those death-bags.
P.S. Not that I want to add to the ragging and chewing on the ushpa after the last batch of negativity towards it has simmered down, but.....
Does anyone else have the bad taste in their mouths from scanning through that mag as I have?
I'd rather not spend the $6.95 per issue (~ $41.70 / year)... that would take a small chunk out of our $150 yearly 'dues.' IMHO, Unless you're biwingal or a pg pilot, the rag has very little useful info for HG pilots. It's a big disappointment once every two months!
