Hang Gliding Travel Insurance

Hang gliding is the closest people have come to bird’s ability to fly. Over the course of history many daredevils tried to create equipment that will let us step off a cliff and fly into the blue sky. If you are not afraid of heights, hang gliding will give the most magical and liberating experience. Who wouldn’t want to live as a bird and soar over the Earth effortlessly?

We, humans, wish we could fly without any special inventions, but even with their help we are not completely safe in these unnatural circumstances. Although hang gliding is not as life threatening as BASE jumping, things can still go wrong and lead to injuries, mostly coming from mid-air collisions and crash landings. Trees, water and cities are some of the worst possible landing sites for a hang glider. 

 

Why do you need travel insurance for hang gliding?

The most seasoned and experienced gliders can probably cruise over such dangerous surface safely, but amateurs and newbies may crash into a tree trunk or some building which would cause serious, sometimes fatal injuries. Changing weather can be another threat for hang gliders, for when the storm hits we all prefer to be closer to the ground, safe and sound, away from the harsh wind that can cause a crash and the lightning that can get fastened to a large metal object. Be on the lookout and ready for an emergency landing if the weather changes drastically when you’re up in the sky.

 

Please note that very few accidents happen, mostly because hang gliders operate 2000 feet in the air.

 

Proper safety precautions such as helmets, special clothing, parachutes, hang checks, pre-flights will keep the odds of incidents low. Hang gliding travel insurance would also help avoid any financial problems and issues with treatment abroad. Read your policy wording carefully to make sure you are properly covered against all possible mishaps.
