Is paragliding dangerous? Paragliding is classified as an extreme sport, you are very safe in our highly qualified pilots hands (or wings). You need to carefully listen while being briefed on your flight, we know adrenaline is going to be rushing through your veins, but when you pilot says RUN, you must RUN, give it all you have and RUN, no sitting down please, no jelly legs. This is potentially the most dangerous part of your flight when your feet (of if you are doing it wrong then your butt) is on the ground. This is when you can roll and yes it will hurt. RUN!!!
All tandem pilots are highly experienced Tandem Flight Instructors (TFI) certified by the South African Association of Paragliding (SAHPA).
