Not Everyone’s Cut Out For Paragliding

Paragliding as a sport hasn’t really existed all that long in any popular form. It took off in the early 1990s and, with out a lot of formal training or guidelines, there tends to be a heck of a lot of accidents. These days the sport is much safer though there are still a small number of deaths per year due to accidents. In 2005 there were about 50 reported accidents and 3 deaths.
