Landing in water.


Recommended Posts


Nice and simple... the only advice I have been given on the subject is from a guy who has had to do it and is alive and flying. :D


Ensure that all of your straps are undone

Leave your brakes up. (DO NOT FLARE!!!)

This will make sure that the wing flies over your head and is as far away from you as possible.

Swim a good distance away from your kit (ACROSS) any noticable current.

Fingers Xed from now on.

My personal thoughts are do not fly over water unless you have glide clear height and or a bottom landing, and you will find that places like the IOW will not like you flying without a knife attached to your kit.
