Preflight Safety for Hang Gliding is an educational app centered around the ten-minute film of the same name. While the film is aimed at increasing pilot attention to safety, the app gives pilots and dreamers a broader look at hang gliding safety today, highlighting the methods, equipment, terms and people that appear in the film.
A good introduction
This is a good introduction to the sport of hang gliding, with a particular focus on the critical area of preflight preparation and safety. Written by experts in the field, this app presents pilots and would-be pilots with basic safety information essential to successful flight. This is not an app to teach you how to fly a hang glider....for that you need an instructor and hands-on training. For a basic ground school review of safety though, it works fine. It's also good for potential students curious about the sport, and looking for better information than "death sport" on-line videos.
Great complement to the movie
This app is very entertaining and a great complement to the movie which is included in the app. I like all the additional interviews and stories which can be watched and listened to. Thanks for trying to make our sport safer by educating the people who fly or are thinking about flying.
