08: the Law
The U.S. has less regulation for powered paragliding than most countries. Many places haven’t even addressed the sport, meaning it’s probably illegal since anything that flies and carries a human would be considered a regulated aircraft.
Our freedom is as precious as it is fragile. By knowing the law, following it, and most importantly, practicing courteous common sense, we can preserve our amazing freedom. More than anything: Don’t piss anybody off!
Even if your flying may be technically legal, anybody feeling threatened by your actions may contact the police who are obliged to them contact the FAA. If the FAA believes you were endangering someone by your operation, you can be found in violation of our FAR 103.
