How to Fly a Powered Para Glider : Pre-Flight Check for Powered Paraglider


Welcome to Expert Village. My name is Hugh
Murphy with Surf the Sky Paragliding. In this clip, we’ll talk about preflighting your para
motor and your paraglider. Starting from the top with your paraglider, you want to make
sure that your paraglider has no rips, tears, or repairs. And, as the lines come down from
the paraglider, that there’s no torn sheaves, that there’s no torn lines. As you come down
to the quick links, you want to make sure that all of your quick links are screwed in
properly, that your riser is set in straight into the carabiner as we mentioned before,
that your carabiner is either locking automatically or you have a lock system for it. And then,
as you get down to the unit, the harness first, you want to make sure that all the straps
are straight, that they’re not twisted, and that they’re comfortably adjusted for your
height and weight. Then, for the motor unit, you want to make sure that you don’t have
any loose screws, that you’re fueled properly, and that everything is safe and inspected
with the motor unit.
