Certified Paragliders 2009

Paragliders 2009 is pretty much in the same format as the Paragliders 2008 pages. That is, plenty of concentrated info presented as tables of graphics and figures.

If you have come here looking for specs or other non-biased info, I'm sure you'll find something of interest!

Although many visitors here have little or no experience of paragliding, pilots with more experience do contribute their impressions of various wings from time to time. Keep an eye out for these paraglider reviews, they can make a good read.

All figures are quoted in Metric and Imperial units to keep you happy no matter where you are from. Also, prices are quoted in the currencies of the most active paragliding nations. It's just as a rough guide of course, and mainly for comparison purposes. Currencies continue to be pretty volatile!

The data below is quoted for only one size of each paraglider, to keep things simpler. That size is picked to suit an in-flight pilot weight of 95 kg (210 pounds). That weight includes clothes, helmet, instruments and other gear. This should allow a reasonable comparison between 2 wings, even if you fly a different size.

OK, here they all are! The list is not meant to be comprehensive. If you think I've left out a particularly good wing, just let me know, via the about the webmaster page of this site. Note: The EN / LTF equivalents below are not exact. In cases where a wing is certified under both systems, I have placed it under the heading which corresponds to its EN rating.

EN A / LTF 1
