MiniWing FAQ


Are MiniWings dangerous?

Not any more dangerous than Paragliding or as paraglider pilots say “it’s more dangerous to drive your car to work”. Sure, the air speed is a little higher but if you fly in the right conditions, this is a non-issue. You will load the glider more than a traditional paraglider, thus making it less susceptible to deflation. If you have the right training, higher windspeeds can be a MiniWing pilot’s dream!

 

Is the transition from Paraglider to MiniWing difficult?

Not at all. You have the basic skills, so come out for a day or two and we will help find the perfect MiniWing for your style. You will leave feeling confident and very happy with your new-found knowledge of freeflight.

Where can MiniWings be flown?

Pretty much anywhere a normal size Paraglider or even a small Speedwing can be flown. Obviously, the conditions must fit the bill but most new age MiniWings get a phenomenal glide. Ridge soaring a MiniWing is always a blast, these wings can even be flown in thermal conditions with the right site, conditions and training.
