Every system is perfectly designed to achieve exactly the results it gets. Donald Berwick
This section is an archive of the Safety Pages, articles and documents published in the website of the International Hang Gliding & Paragliding Commission (CIVL) of the World Air Sports Federation (FAI) between 2012 and 2017.
For those interested but starting from scratch, like the author in 2007, the common part here is a shortcut, a selection avoiding to browse and pointing directly to significant references, to give a quick overall idea of how safety works. Of course it is fully subjective. The most important documents or those to start with in these pages are marked in red.
