You can make flying a powered parachute light-sport aircraft, like most adventure sports, as safe or as dangerous as you want. You can enjoy years of injury free flying as long as you are trained properly, follow basic safety guidelines and use well maintained equipment.
Flying a powered parachute light-sport aircraft is an outdoor sport and Mother Nature is unpredictable — weather is always a big consideration. The primary safety factors are personal judgment and attitude. You must be willing to learn, use good judgement and have an appropriate attitude. If you do, then you can safely fly a powered parachute for many years.
You can make flying a PPC LSA safe by receiving instruction from a certified professional and fly a well maintained and reliable aircraft. A professional school and flight instructor will create a safe and controlled learning environment. Use our Sport Pilot LSA Locator to find a flight school/instructor.
