Paragliding Guide – Acknowledgment of Risk

 

1. ASSUMPTION OF RISK

The participant is fully aware that Paramotoring, ParaTriking and Paragliding and all associated activities are calculated risk sports and contain inherent risks and dangers, including serious injury or death. The participant knows and understands the scope, nature, and extent of the risks involved in the activities contemplated by this agreement. The participant voluntarily and freely chooses to incur any and all such risks and dangers.

2. EXEMPTION FROM LIABILITY

The participant hereby fully and forever discharges and releases the school, its owners or directors, employees, instructors, equipment manufacturers, and owners of land used for Paragliding and Paramotoring activities from any and all liability, claims, demands, actions, and causes of action whatsoever arising out of any damages, both in law and equity, in any way resulting from incidents or property damages sustained by the participant arising out of training, flying or any other vehicle operation, Paramotor, ParaTrike, Paraglider or otherwise, or any other device of the school while on the ground or in flight, or while participating in any of the activities contemplated by this release. Exemption from liability includes loss, damage, or injury through no fault of the school’s or any other causes.

3. INDEMNITY AGREEMENT

The participant agrees, for him/her self and his/her heirs, executors, administrators or assigns to indemnify the school, its owner, employees, instructors, successors, equipment manufacturers, or assigns, from any and all losses, claims, actions, or proceedings of any kind which may be initiated by the participant and or any other person or organisation. This includes reimbursement of all legal costs and reasonable council fees incurred by the participant or the school, and indemnified parties, or any of them, for the defence of an incident where the school has not acted negligently which may hereafter arise directly or indirectly from the activities of the participant while engaged in training.

4. CONTINUATION OF OBLIGATION

The participant agrees and acknowledges that the terms and conditions of the above provisions, including ASSUMPTION OF RISK, EXEMPTION FROM LIABILITY and INDEMNITY AGREEMENT shall continue in full force and effect at all times, and shall be binding upon heirs, executors, administrators or assigns of the participant or his/her estate.

5. DISCLAIMER

Any and all Paramotoring and Paragliding equipment is specifically not warranted as being merchantable. Paramotoring and Paragliding training programs are not licensed by any governmental agency. The school is a member of several international formal and informal groups and associations who have various training procedures to which the participant and school may or may not adhere. The school is the sole proponent for our program.

6. TERMS OF INSTRUCTION

I understand that I am paying for instruction in the sport of Paramotoring, ParaTriking or Paragliding and that does not guarantee my right to fly. I also understand that in the interests of safety the Instructor’s word is final, that these sports are weather dependent and that the weather is out of the control of the school.

7. HEALTH AND FITNESS FOR TRAINING, PARAGLIDING AND PARAMOTORING

Paramotoring and Paragliding are strenuous physical and mental activities. We recommend a complete physical examination prior to sitting a course. All participants agree to make the school aware, before starting the course, of any personal Medical or Physical conditions that may put them at an increased risk of injury or death whilst under instruction. All participants agree to refrain from taking any illegal or performance inhibiting drug for the duration of the course and also from drinking alcohol for 10 hours prior to engaging in Paramotoring or Paragliding activities.

BY BOOKING A COURSE, A TRIP OR PURCHASING EQUIPMENT PARTICIPANTS DECLARE THEY ARE COMPLETELY AWARE THAT THE FINAL DECISION RESTS WITH THEM AS THE PILOT AND THAT THEY CONSIDER THEMSELVES PHYSICALLY FIT ENOUGH TO COMPLETE A COURSE WITH THE SCHOOL. PARTICIPANTS ALSO AGREE THAT IF THEY HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, CONCERNS OR ISSUES THAT THEY WILL RAISE THESE IMMEDIATELY WITH THE SCHOOL IN THE INTERESTS OF SAFETY AND COMMUNICATION.
