This DVD is an integral part of our own ground school. We use it to demonstrate the most common collapses and deflations that a paraglider is subject to, and what response and reactions are necessary from the pilot. Knowing what to do when things go bad is good preparation for every pilot, even if we never have to use it.
This DVD covers:
Asymmetric Collapses • Cravats • Cascades • Front Collapses • Pitch Control • Wingovers • Swing Through Landings • Active Piloting • Big Ears • B-Line Stalls • Spiral Dives • Full Stalls • Spins • And when it all goes wrong - Reserve Deployment!
Bruce Goldsmith’s new film is set to become the new benchmark in SIV instruction. In 1992, the Airwave designer co-presented 'Instability', a film which helped thousands of pilots gain insight into tips and tricks learnt by the professional test pilots.
As paragliders have developed, so have the techniques required to fly them safely through turbulence and during radical manouvres. Instability 2 is an essential update for all pilots wanting to fly at their safest. This DVD and accompanying booklet will guide you step-by-step through some of the most critical lessons you’ll need as a paraglider pilot.
Instability 2 is not a ‘do-it-yourself’ instructional guide. To learn any of the manouvres outlined on this DVD, you should be under instruction from an experienced SIV instructor in appropriate conditions.
Running time: 38 minutes. DVD all regions. Shot on location in the maritime Alps, south of France. Languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Chinese
DISCLAIMER: Please read and be sure you thoroughly understand this disclaimer before flying a TrikeBuggy. Trike flying is an extremely demanding sport requiring exceptional levels of attention, judgment, maturity and self discipline. It is unlikely that you will be able to participate in it safely unless you make a conscious and continual commitment to your own safety. PPG and Hang Glider Trike flying is a dangerous sport and may result in injury and death even when practiced by a competent pilot using proper equipment. TrikeBuggies are not covered by product liability insurance, nor have they been designed manufactured or tested to any federal or state government airworthiness standards or regulations. Do not fly them unless you are willing to assume personally all risks in the sport of Trike flying, and all responsibility for any property damage, injury, or death which may result from your use of this TrikeBuggy. Safe operation of the TrikeBuggy requires a pilot proficiency equivalent to that of a BFI (Basic Flight Instructor), as well as an equivalent level of knowledge and understanding of those wind and weather conditions which may compromise the pilot's safe control of the TrikeBuggy. In particular, be advised that gusty winds or turbulent conditions may interfere with even an expert pilot's ability to safely control the TrikeBuggy, and may cause it to crash. Never take anything for granted in Trike Flying. If you are in doubt about anything, stop and figure it out or call TrikeBuggy. Also please read our Warning and Caution!
