Parachuting & Paragliding
Canada is a great wilderness area with plenty of great recreational activities for everyone. When you choose to be high in the sky, free as a bird, a powered paraglider is perhaps the most inexpensive option. Paragliding permits you to possess an aircraft of your own, which can be conveniently kept in your basement, attic, garage, or even in a closet in your home. It doesn’t need access to an airport to fly out of and the best thing of all is you can transport it anywhere around in a truck or large car. Contrary to traditional paragliders without engines, launching your glider from level ground is easy and you can fly without an aircraft or tow vehicle to propel you into the air. Engine powered paragliders lets you get up in the clouds like a free bird without constraint.
The equipment needed for a backpack engine powered paraglider is minimal. All you’ll need is a glider or “wing,” the engine or paramotor, and some form of communications. Training is also minimal, to get licensed in Canada, you will need to complete thirty solo take-offs and landing. Most people can complete this in seven to ten days. Additional requirements may be added by local aviation authorities, so be sure to check before you take-off.
Skydiving and Parachuting
Although sport parachuting is fun, the cost of a pre-arranged flight to get you soaring through the clouds is a bit more inconvenient than paragliding, even taking off from a cliff or mountainside requires that you get to that location.
You can check for a parachute riggers course run by the Canadian Sport Parachuting Association (CSPA), the official organization for the parachuting sport in several locations to start your adventure. There are some safety requirements and you can find those on this website, as well.
Statistics for Accidents - Canada
According to the Director of Primary Health Care Information and Clinical Registries at Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI), "Every year, more than 5,000 Canadians get seriously injured—requiring at least one night’s hospital stay—due to a winter sport or recreational activity."
Parachuting and para-gliding injuries can be very serious involving head trauma, spinal cord damage or broken bones.
On average, CIHI estimates that each year about 12,000 Canadians are killed from unintentional injuries and 200,000 are hospitalized. While these activities can be fun, living a life in a wheelchair is tough. You might be able to file a lawsuit to recover some money to pay for any negligence on the part of the parachute manufacturer or recreational company.
