1. When two pilots meet head-on away from the ridge,
both turn right.
3. Near the ridge, right of way is given to the pilot whose right-hand side is nearest the ridge.
4. Overtaking should be executed at a safe distance of at least 2 wingspans
and the overtaking pilot should pass between the ridge and the pilot he is
5. On landing, priority is given to the pilot who is closer to the ground. However, the lower pilot should not linger during landing setup, but quickly land to clear the way.
6. The pilot who enters a thermal first determines the circling direction.
The second pilot to enter, whether lower or higher, should circle in the same
7. In the same thermal the pilot lower down has priority and the one higher up should clear the thermal if they come too close together, since the pilot lower down is unaware of the other pilot's presence or position.
8. Tandems always have right of way over solo paragliders, except if they are higher up in a thermal.
9. Flying within a cloud is strictly inadvisable. This practice is forbidden in most countries because it is dangerous.
10. Free-flight configurations always have right of way over paramotors, powerchutes and ultralights, but should yield way to other aircraft.
11. Paragliders should comply with national (federal) regulations. In most countries, among other important items, it is strictly forbidden to fly near airports or aerodromes within a radius of 8 km (5 miles) and a height of 750 m (2500 ft). You are obliged to follow air traffic rules.
Do not fly too close to another paraglider, nor should you follow close behind. Every pilot must take care to avoid collisions with other pilots. Such rules are intended to organize flying with the ultimate goal of safety. These rules are a guide and may change in some parts or differ in your country.
